City Engineering

The Engineering Division plans, designs, directs construction and manages public projects. The division administers the capital funds for public projects to address rehabilitation and restoration of public roadways, water, sewer and stormwater infrastructure. The division oversees grant funds for special projects. In addition, the division serves as an engineering resource to other city departments in the design and implementation of capital improvements and civic enhancements.


Tommer Construction will be starting a Chip Seal Project on July 21st and are scheduled to be completed by July 30th.  The project will include all of the colored streets on the attached drawing.  The contractor will be prepping the streets from July 21st to July 23rd and applying oil and rock chips from July 26th to July 30th.  It is very important to remove all vehicles from the street on days that the oil and rock chips will be placed.  Notices will be delivered to all addresses the day before work will be performed.  All vehicles that are left on the street may be towed off of the project site at the owner’s expense.  Please contact Shawn O’Brien at sobrien@othellowa.gov if you have any questions.
