The Engineering Division - in the Public Works Department - is in charge of installation of storm water drainage facilities, curb and gutter, and sidewalks in connection with street improvement projects; undergrounding overhead utility lines; traffic flow management; watercourse and drainage management; Town mapping; supervision and control of public infrastructure and capital projects; inspection and sign off for Building Permits and Certificates of Occupancy.

Building Permits and Certificates of Occupancy
The engineers review construction plans to ensure conformance with the Town Storm Drainage, Flood Prevention, and Water Quality and Sediment Transport Control Standards.  A final inspection is required in order to obtain a Certificate of Occupancy.

The Engineering Department has begun using ArcGIS, a graphical information system that ties data to maps.  This software should improve staff efficiency when retrieving and analyzing information, eliminate duplicate data entry, and supply complete and accurate data to other departments and the public.
