Mission Statement:
Our engineers strive to hold the highest safety, health, and welfare of the public in the performance of our professional duties. We aim to treat the residents and other Town Departments with the outmost respect and abide by the Engineers Code of Ethics.

Duties & Responsibilities:
The Engineering Division provides analytical analyses and design, develops plans and specifications, and estimates management, coordination, and construction support for the Department of Public Works. This includes the utilities, water, and sewer, as well as stormwater, drainage, and roadway design.  

Water, sewer, and gas services, as well as driveway installations, are inspected and approved onsite by the engineering staff. In addition, the Drain Layers are approved and licensed by the Engineering Division.   

The Engineering Division works closely with other Town departments to assist with planning and conservation review, as well as traffic management. They provide technical support to Town Counsel for miscellaneous legalities. In addition, the Geographic Information Systems (GIS) mapping is created and updated by the Engineering personnel.  

In the locations where the sewer utility is available to the public, the Engineering Division issues permits to construct, repair, extend, or connect to the municipal system per approved plans. The Community Development Permit Technicians track all permit documentation. A total of approximately 400 sewer connection permits were issued this year.
