In January 2010 the City of Richmond Administration recommended the elimination of the Department of General Services and the incorporation of the various service areas and accompanying budget dollars within it into the Department of Information Technology,the Department of Public Utilities, the Department of Public Works, as well as the Non-Departmental budget. The intent was to enhance the quality of services being provided to the citizens of Richmond.
