Engineering is part of the Department of Public Works, which serves the public interest by ensuring that all municipal public works improvements and facilities are designed and constructed in accordance with established standards.
Engineering coordinates all engineering services related to private development projects during both planning and construction stages. Direct supervision and review of work performed by consulting engineers is also performed by the Department staff. In essence, the Engineering manages, designs and constructs the majority of the projects included in the City's annual Capital Improvement Program.
Proper engineering data are formulated to meet the requirements of project feasibility reports, design considerations, final plans, specifications, and other planning and engineering procedures. Engineering supervision is given to municipal public works improvement projects in surveying, analyzing bids, supervising construction, certifying progress of construction and recommending acceptance of work done by contractors. Depending upon the size and scope of an improvement project, the engineering services may be performed in-house, rendered by engineering consultants, or by a combination of the two.
Engineering also performs all traffic safety and school services for the City. All mapping services, including computerized geographical information systems (G.I.S.), are provided by Engineering. This group also performs the utility locating and coordination services for the water, wastewater, stormwater and traffic signal systems in the City.
