Colma (Calif.) Administrative Services Director Brian Dossey wears many hats in managing the city’s government operations, including its website, As part of our ProudCity Profiles series, we asked Brian to share why he’s proud of Colma, its digital service efforts, what he’s learned and advice to others.


“It’s great to be alive in Colma! Not only is Colma the smallest city in the Bay Area, we are a cemetery city, playing host to 17 cemeteries including a pet cemetery. We have approximately 1,500 residents and over 1.5 million souls. Colma is truly special because, while we are in a very busy urban area, Colma boasts an old-world charm all its own, from its Spanish-Mediterranean architecture, paving stone residential streets and ornamental street lamps to the community where everyone knows their neighbors. It’s exciting to work for Colma because we have such a dedicated and innovative team, where working together and towards a common goal is the everyday norm.”
