What We Do

The primary function of the Engineering Division is to promote the health, safety and general welfare of the public.  This is accomplished in several ways.  The department provides review and input of entitlement projects for land division and development applications in the areas of civil site improvements such as streets, water and sewer utilities, grading, storm drainage, flood plain and franchised utilities such as power, gas and low voltage.  Serves as the permitting authority for site improvement projects and encroachment permits.  Coordinates with other local, state and federal jurisdictions.  Performs inspection of site construction projects.  Acts as a resource to the public for information on other topics including interpretation of code, flood plain information, record information of previous projects and utility mapping.  The department also works directly and indirectly on managing capital improvement projects that improve the quality of life for the citizens of Douglas County.
