Engineering Department


The primary function of the Engineering Department is to promote the orderly development of the city by providing general engineering services to regulate the construction of municipal structures, city streets, sewage disposal, water supply, and storm drainage facilities. City Engineer services are provided through a contract with Weber, Ghio, and Associates.

The department provides review of all new developments for conformance to city standards and policies; formulates conditions to be imposed on proposed developments; and conducts complete reviews of final plans and maps, including computing and collecting required fees and bond amounts. 

The department is responsible for issuing encroachment and water/sewer connection permits, maintaining the city's maps, preparing the plans and specifications for most of the city's major projects, and providing drawings to help other departments.

 The department also provides design and inspection services for most of the city's capital improvement programs, and reviews and inspects all improvements to the city's infrastructure, including all new subdivisions.  A critical part of the Capital Improvement projects, includes on-going bridge replacement projects. They are funded through the California Department of Transportation's Bridge Prevention Maintenance Program.
