What We Do
The Engineering and Inspection Department plans, designs, maintains and manages all infrastructure within the City rights-of-way in order to provide the general public with safe, efficient, and quality roadways, sidewalks, and utilities.
The Engineering and Inspection Department, under the direction of the City Engineer, implements and administers the provisions in the City's Code of Ordinances, state and federal regulations relating to floodplain management, rights-of-way, public utilities and stormwater conveyance. The Department also issues right-of-way and utility construction permits, approve plats, and reviews engineering plans on all developments located in the City and all construction in the City’s rights-of-way.
Another part of our work is identifying local, state, and federal funding to support capital improvement projects, helping stretch our local tax dollars. We identify roadway safety issues, manage the City's Concrete Assessment Program, and monitor capital project sites for safety and compliance to state and federal stormwater pollution prevention plans. We make recommendations for safety studies and stormwater studies, and collect traffic data to help make informed decisions about the future of Monroe's roadways and parks.
For all requests for information (permitting, bonding, submittals), please contact our Engineering Division via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
