Hello Morgan Hill!
Are you looking to change your scenery, earn extra money just for the summer, or a more significant career change? All job openings and general employment information can be found in the City's Employment Center. See what's right for you and join the team!

While you are out pounding the pavement, you may notice construction signs and barriers in multiple locations. The City of San Jose updated a notice that affects Monterey Road just north of Morgan Hill. Construction on Monterey near Tilton starts next week and is scheduled to continue in phases through July. Full details and a map detailing each phase are available. Drive carefully! For Morgan Hill's maintenance and construction updates, check out "The Scoop" below.
The City of Morgan Hill is working to make amendments to the Tree Protection Ordinance, which addresses:

(1) conserving these valuable and distinctive natural resources,

(2) instituting the means for mitigating erosion, fire hazards, climate change, plus reducing pollutions in our atmosphere and water

(3) increasing wildlife habitat, community aesthetics, and shade coverage.

The amendments are intended to clarify what is to be protected, what is not protected, and the processes for tree removals and replacements. Take a very short survey.
