The Engineering Department's primary objective is to serve the residents of the Township in a manner which promotes efficiency and environmental consciousness in all day to day operations. It is also an objective to influence other departments and organizations to meet similar goals. Whether it is responding to emergency utility breaks, constructing new infrastructure improvements, upgrading traffic signals or evaluating Township policies, the Engineering Department is at the core of the project.
A designated person in the Department is responsible for overseeing the Township's Indoor Air Quality Program. This state requirement requires a plan and monitoring of all public buildings for air quality.
The Engineering Department also oversees the work of numerous outside consultants. These firms provide services in an as-needed basis and include architecture, environmental remediation, surveying, Engineering design, and planning.
The Township Engineer reports directly to the Township Administrator and reports on a monthly basis to the
Planning and Engineering Committee. The Committee is comprised of three members of the Township Committee
, the Township Administrator
, and the Township Engineer. The Engineering Department and Planning and Engineering Committee are responsible for planning and evaluating projects town wide to satisfy the needs of the community.
