The office of the Village Engineer is responsible for plan review and construction oversight to ensure that public and private development improvements comply with Village standards, as well as County, State and Federal regulations.

The Village Engineer also prepares construction plans, specifications and contract documents for the construction of Village sewer, water and roadway improvements. Field technicians with the Village Engineer’s office provide coordination between residents, contractors and Village staff during construction projects.

In addition to construction-related services, the Village Engineer responds to inquiries from Village staff and residents regarding stormwater drainage and floodplain management, location of Village-owned utilities, right-of-way and property surveys, subdivision review, mapping services, Geographic Information Systems (GIS), and traffic studies.
