Who are our first responders?
When the City of Rancho Palos Verdes was founded in 1973, it was incorporated as a "contract city." As such, we maintain a very small permanent staff (only 45 full-time employees for a population of approximately 41,000 residents) and contract with a variety of private firms and other governmental agencies to provide the majority of local services to our residents. By contracting with the County for these services, we are able to tap into a much larger pool of resources and expertise than we would otherwise be able to provide on our own.
