Mission Statement

We strive to provide professional engineering services for the City in the form of the following:

Our goal is to help the City grow responsibly and provide the highest standard of living possible for its residents with a sound infrastructure base for business and industry.


The Engineering Department designs many of the City’s water, sewer and street projects using the latest Auto CAD release of Civil 3D. The staff prepares bidding documents and administers the bidding and construction phases, including construction inspection and coordinates the projects through closeout.

The department also provides engineering guidance to all departments in the City with emphasis in the Public Works and Wastewater Departments. The staff also reviews and approves plans submitted for review by developers and consulting engineers and assists in coordination of large infrastructure projects.

In addition, the Engineering GIS staff maintains City infrastructure maps and all forms of geographically referenced information for many departments in the City.
