Governor Whitmer’s announcement has prompted the City of Warren to take immediate action to help reverse the record number of cases and deaths in Michigan. Effective this Wednesday, all departments in the city will reactivate the remote work plans beginning on Wednesday. Mayor Fouts had ordered these plans into effect earlier this year. Most employees* will be working from home and those that work inside will be required to wear a mask, social distance, and sanitize while at city hall. City Hall will be closed to the public until further notice. Warren has been at the forefront of successfully combating COVID-19 and Mayor Fouts intends to keep us in a leadership position to protect our employees and the community while continuing to deliver effective city services to our residents. All hands-on deck meaning that all of us need to follow the simple protocol of masks, sanitizing and social distancing. Masks are to protect others and yourself with a recent study indicating it’s the single most important factor to stop the spread of this virus.
*We are requiring most employees to work from home unless they are absolutely needed at city hall.
A Division of Public Service
The Engineering Division is responsible for delivering a cost-effective infrastructure system. The Division assesses the condition of the present road, sidewalk, storm sewer, sanitary sewer, and water main systems; establishes a priority for system upgrades, pursues avenues for construction funding, designs and specifies the proposed construction work; and oversees the contract work that provides an improved infrastructure system. In addition, the Engineering Division services all of the other city Divisions, Departments and Commissions as they seek to restore, maintain and upgrade the city facilities and properties under their jurisdiction.
The Division is working in a concerted effort with the Public Service, Assessing and Planning Departments to computerize all city zoning, parcel, and infrastructure system maps to develop an interactive information system to better manage our city’s resources.
The Division maintains and upgrades all records of city utilities, streets, and addresses, as well as all project-specific contract records and “as-built” construction information. All such records are available to prospective developers, builders, architects, engineers, commercial and industrial facility operators, and residents. All private development site plans, including subdivisions, condominium projects, and commercial and industrial facilities are reviewed by the Engineering Division for impact to the surrounding area, and compatibility to the local infrastructure system. All work within city right-of-ways and easements are inspected by the Engineering Division.
