Engineering Department

The Director/City Engineer oversees the Engineering Department.

The primary function of the Engineering Department is to promote the orderly development of the City by providing general engineering services to regulate the construction of municipal structures, city streets, sewage disposal, water supply and storm drainage facilities.

The Engineering Department is responsible for issuing encroachment and water/sewer connection permits, maintaining the City's maps, preparing the plans and specifications for most of the City's major projects, and providing drawings to help other departments.

The Engineering Department provides design and inspection services for most of the City's capital improvement programs. The Division also reviews and inspects all improvements to the City's infrastructure, including all new subdivisions. Drawing and mapping services are also provided for other departments of the City.

The Department also oversees traffic safety, solid waste and recycling services, and public transportation services.
