The City of Napoleon Engineering Department provides services that are essential to the residents of Napoleon to maintain a safe convenient lifestyle. Most of us take these services for granted. Some may not know what services are available. It is the mission of this engineering department to inform and provide a superior quality of service to its residents. The services provided are described below.

The Engineering Department is under the leadership of the city engineer who is responsible for the department budget preparation; personnel management of 3 full-time employees in the department; planning, design, plan & plat review; and construction for the maintenance and improvements of the city's infrastructure, including streets, storm sewers, potable water system, and sanitary sewer system.

This department works closely with engineering design firms to complete plans and specifications for project development by the city and by private developers and to inspect the construction of the improvements in the field.
