The Town Engineer reports to the Superintendent of Streets who reports to the Town Administrator who reports to the Board of Selectmen. The focus of services rendered by the Town Engineer is to ensure the safety of its citizens.
On Call to Help Citizens
The Town Engineer is available at the Town Garage and you may call anytime with your concerns and problems. If necessary, the Town Engineer will visit your home to discuss your problem, be it storm water runoff, location of your property lines, and frequently the advent of a new house being built next to you. Often the new home changes the rainfall runoff patterns that may impact on your property.
Reviewing Permits Before Approval
The Town Engineer very carefully reviews all permit plans required by the Building Department to prevent possible damage to your land. The design engineer is then contacted and instructed to revise this plan if necessary. Approval is granted only after meeting all the requirements of the Town Engineer’s checklist.
