Engineering Department

The Engineering Department will provide and maintain quality professional engineering services in a courteous, timely and cost-effective way. The safety, health, and quality of life for our citizens will continue to be at the forefront of our designs.

We will responsibly serve our citizens, our customers and other Town Departments with bearing in mind the 3R’s (respect, refinement, and responsibility) and the 3C’s (courtesy, cooperation, consideration).

We will be responsive to citizens requests and maintain an open line of communication to keep our public informed and educated.

As our responsibilities continue to grow, we will acquire the newest technology available to our Department to respond to the changing needs of our customers.

Our Department philosophy will be to encourage individualism and participation of employees in the decision-making process. We will motivate employees by recognizing their accomplishments and encouraging creativity and participation. The Department is also committed to providing a safe working environment for its staff.

The Department will establish a cohesive management and employee partnership that will listen to, involve, and include all by providing a forum of open communication.
