Engineering Department

The City of Powell Engineering Department performs reconnaissance, feasibility, engineering and construction surveys, prepares maps, makes calculations, sets lines and grades for infrastructure construction and coordinates the actual construction and supervision.  As a department we compute quantity estimates and summaries for bid items for construction projects and estimate costs of future construction projects for planning and budgeting.  We prepare contract documents, specifications, change orders, bid tabulations, cost estimates, and other work involved in contractual construction work.  As projects are submitted, we review project design, plans and specifications.  We assist the public, contractors and others with engineering related matters and provide engineering support and services to other city departments. 

 

 

Message from the Mayor

 

 

It was a bittersweet moment on Tuesday, February 21, as I recited my oath of office as Mayor of Powell.  While I was sad to say goodbye to former Mayor Don Hillman, I am excited to be the next mayor for a town I thoroughly love.

On to business.  Its planning time at the city which is exciting as we ponder the future.  Budget season is upon us where our work will focus on continuing to take care of city business, with a mindful eye toward preserving and protecting the reserves. Many projects, repairs and maintenance are also forthcoming, including this summer’s WYDOT partnership to remove the remaining medians and replace street lights on Colter Highway.  Engineering has begun on widening Absaroka Street; my thanks to taxpayers for supporting this sales tax initiative.  And if you look closely you may see a new Verizon tower emerge in the softball complex at Homesteader Park.  Spring will be busy as the weather breaks with pot hole repairs, leading to chip sealing streets this summer.  Of course, we cannot forget the street cleaning necessary as we recovery from a real Wyoming winter. Finally, here’s a warning for folks if they see me driving about.  My attention on city details has become somewhat acute as I move around town.  But I’ll try not count potholes or look at sewer drains – we have professionals for that. 

Moving forward, feel free to call or stop by city hall with your thoughts or concerns.
