City Engineer Nate Nelson

The Engineering Division is responsible for water distribution, wastewater collection, stormwater, and streets, including:

  • Capital improvement planning and construction

  • Development review and approval 

  • Utility and infrastructure construction inspection 

  • Utility and infrastructure planning

  • Geographical Information Systems



The Engineering Division is responsible for establishing public improvement bonds and administering their reductions and releases. The purpose of these bonds is to ensure that construction of public improvements is performed according to City standards and are established to protect residents of the City. Download the generalized process diagram of the City’s bond process.

Developers are responsible for notifying the Engineering Division when they are ready for an inspection, as well as completing their project corrections lists (punch lists) in a timely manner.  Projects established under the enhanced process allow for 75-percent reductions in a particular system bond amount once a system (water system, sewer system, etc.) is completed.  Once all public improvements are completed and verified by an inspection, the project may go into the warranty period and a 90-percent bond reduction approved.  Once the warranty period is complete, an additional inspection is performed, a punch list completed, and the remaining 10-percent released. 


Bond Establishment 

As part of the project approval process, a bond is required to be established for all public improvements.
