The Hastings Engineering Department is one of the two divisions that make up the Public Works Department. Department staff consists of the City Engineer, Assistant City Engineer, Engineering Supervisor, three Level II Engineering Technicians, and the Administrative Assistant. The Department's offices are located at the Cal Ruedy Public Works Facility at 1225 Progress Drive. Office hours are 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM. Office hours are extended during the construction season (June – September) to 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
The Engineering Department is responsible for a large number of duties; however, the overriding responsibility of the department is to plan, design, and inspect infrastructure construction and reconstruction such as roads, sanitary and storm sewers, water supply, trails, etc. within the City's rights-of-way and easements. In the fall of each year, department staff begins planning for the following year's construction activity by performing research and development of construction plans and specifications. These plans are most often put out for bids by prospective contractors in the early spring, and then implemented during the summer construction season.
Technical Assistance/Complaint Response On an ongoing basis the Engineering Department is available for technical assistance and complaint response in the areas of developer’s site plan review, utility installations, driveway/sidewalk installations/reconstruction, site grading and general technical issues.
