Engineering & Operations

Engineering & Operations

The Engineering Branch is responsible for the technical aspects of municipal engineering such as:

  • Infrastructure / Utility Management & Capital Projects
  • Information Technology (IT)
  • Land Development Engineering

Municipal Engineering includes road works, pedestrian/cycling facilities, traffic management, water works, sanitary sewerage, storm water management, and street lighting. Engineering personnel assess the demands on the Town’s infrastructure, which may result in Capital Works projects to either improve or replace the existing services. Staff plan, design and perform the review and assessment of engineering design proposals for Capital Works projects and new land developments, and inspect the construction of these works. The Engineering branch also provides technical support to Operations Staff and other Town Departments as required, and is responsible for the management of engineering records.

Engineering staff are committed to delivering services to residents in the most cost effective and efficient manner possible. Engineering also ensures all municipal infrastructure meets the needs and standards of the community.
