Mission Statement: provide engineering support for Village Board and Public Works projects (to include new developments, residential permits, traffic generated problems, and drainage problems). The Engineering Department works through the Public Works Committee, and the Planning Commission; providing recommendations and proposed solutions to identified problems.

Responsibilities: design, inspection, permit review, and administration of public works infrastructure improvements within the Village. The department is full service and is able to manage most engineering activities in-house. Special studies are normally performed by consultant contract services. The Engineering Department also manages all land development activities for the Planning Commission, from the review of plans to meeting with developers to final approval of proposed developmental improvements. Other functions of the Engineering Department include traffic safety and environmental issues. Intersections, sign requests, and road conditions are reviewed and improvements are recommended, if required. Environmental issues, enforcement of erosion control standards and preservation of wetlands, conservation areas, and floodplains are continually monitored.
