Plan Preparation & Construction Supervision

Engineering reviews all planned public improvements, City projects, City-awarded contracts, commercial, industrial and condominium/subdivision sites which generate revenues to the City each year. The office reviews plans for appropriate grading and water and sewer connections.

Engineering prepares the plans and specifications and supervises construction of all projects authorized by City Council. This office prepares ordinance variance agreements and coordinates activities and decisions involving the City and other agencies such as the Road Commission of Macomb County and the City of Detroit. Multi-jurisdictional contracts are often required with road construction projects. The City Engineer serves as liaison to county, state, and federal agencies to synchronize the approval process for orderly and organized project development.
