Engineering Department

Mission Statement

The City of North Tonawanda Engineering Department is responsible for planning and oversite on construction projects involving the City owned infrastructures. The department keeps permanent records on file of all City owned utilities and buildings, and is responsible for locating and protecting the infrastructures when outside contractors are performing work within the City right of way.
The Engineering Department actively participates with all other departments on construction related projects, making necessary improvements due to the age and condition of the aging infrastructure.
The Department is also involved in planning and environmental reviews of all new construction projects, working closely with the various governmental agencies  and city boards such as the Planning Commission, to ensure that codes and design standards are adhered to.
Finally, the Engineering Department has taken up the challenge of environmental clean-up  within the City such as the remediation of  Gratwick-Riverside Park, Roblin Steel Site, and most recently 815 River Road reducing the City liabilities in making North Tonawanda a cleaner and safer place to live and work.
