City contracts for development review
January 31, 2013
The Newcastle City Council unanimously approved a resolution authorizing the city to contract with a consultant that will provide development engineering review for the year.
The Public Works Department, in particular Assistant City Engineer Kerry Sullivan, is expected to bear the brunt of what will be a busy 2013.
With an increased pavement rehabilitation program, two sidewalk projects and an anticipated need for more development engineering review in 2013, Public Works Director Mark Rigos requested the extra support to assist with the department’s workload.
City Manager Rob Wyman and Rigos interviewed three candidates to provide part-time development engineering review, settling on Bruce N. Johnson, a professional engineer, as the preferred choice.
