Release hiring freeze for the Senior Engineer position within the Roads-Engineering Division of the Transportation and Public Works Department

Executive Summary:

On December 11, 2018, the Board adopted a budget balancing strategy in the form of a hiring freeze on all positions which were not under recruitment and had been vacant for longer than nine months as of December 11, 2018. The Senior Engineer position within the Roads-Engineering Division of the Department of Transportation and Public Works (TPW) was one of the positions subject to the hiring freeze. TPW requires a Senior Engineer in order to provide supervision of its Construction Unit, Survey Crew and Materials Lab, and therefore recommends that the Board grant a release of the hiring freeze for this position.

 

Discussion:

TPW requires a Senior Engineer in order to provide supervision to its Construction Unit, Survey Crew and Materials Lab. This position is subject to the hiring freeze and was previously left vacant due to an inability to find an experienced candidate to fill the position at the time it became vacant in 2018.

This position oversees staff in the Roads-Engineering Division Construction Unit, Survey Crew and Materials Lab. The type of work the position oversees includes, but is not limited to, construction contract administration, inspection of construction projects, field survey work, survey mapping, and preparation of engineering calculations. The position requires a Professional Engineer’s license through the State as well as four years, full-time engineering experience.
