Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

Before work begins within a subdivision, the Engineering Department reviews the Plan of Improvements and holds a pre-construction meeting with the contractor, subcontractors, Water Department and Engineering Department, but may include the developer, other utility companies or other City departments.  Staff provides quality control in the field for storm and sanitary sewers, drain tile, and Portland cement concrete. The City has adopted the latest version of SUDAS (Statewide Design Standards) and utilizes these standards for all subdivisions. Once all public improvements are installed, the City Council will consider accepting the public improvements for the subdivision.
