The Engineering Division provides services related to civil engineering in several areas, such as:
These are infrastructure items owned and maintained by the city, such as water and sewer lines, storm water drainage systems, and street and alleys.
Our goal is to ensure that new public improvements are designed to mesh with existing infrastructure, are sized to handle future development, and are constructed in a way that will be easy to maintain. We have authority over developments proposed by private companies, and we prepare plans for projects the city will pay for.
Engineering also has responsibility for federal programs such as floodplain management (flood prevention) and storm water pollution prevention. We can provide copies of floodplain surveys, etc., upon request.
