 The role of Engineering is to provide technical and logistical support to all City departments and enterprises.  Work includes performing or contracting for services such as surveying, engineering design, construction inspection, and project administration (including contract and grant management services).  Engineering’s primary objective is to upgrade existing public infrastructure, provide new infrastructure improvements consisting of transportation, potable water, wastewater and reclaimed water facilities, and to regulate development of similar facilities in private ownership projects through an extensive plan review and inspection process.  Engineering also strives to maximize right-of-way construction compliance with the City Codes and assist other departments and the public in properly addressing local, state, and federal requirements relating to most types of development.
