Engineering

Responsibilities
The City’s engineering staff performs a variety of tasks related to design and construction. This staff is responsible for construction management on all City construction projects. This work involves:

  • Bidding
  • Contract management
  • Inspection during construction
  • Approving payments
  • Project closeout
The engineering staff works closely with Maintenance Operations in developing solutions to problems encountered in maintaining the City’s street and stormwater infrastructure.

We have a mapping and CADD system that provides maps and informational graphics used by City staff.

Permits
The engineering staff also reviews construction permits for compliance with City design standards. We manage street opening permits to ensure underground work done by other agencies is properly done, including restoration of the roadway. We also manage the FEMA flood insurance certification process. Our work in this area translates directly into insurance rate savings for property owners.
