Duties of the County Engineer:

The Delaware County Engineer's Office provides many important services for the citizens of Delaware County, including maintaining over 330 miles of roads, over 370 bridges and thousands of culverts, streams and ditches in the public right-of-way.


The County Engineer is an elected official, serving terms of four years.  The office prepares construction plans, specifications and estimates for improvements to all county roads.  The County Engineer also serves as engineering advisor to all townships in the county, assisting them with township road improvements and maintenance.  The office inspects and maintains all bridges on township and county roads and maintains traffic signals on county roads that intersect other county or township roads.


The Engineer's Office oversees new commercial and residential construction projects in unincorporated areas for conformance to public street construction standards as well as grading and erosion control requirements.  The office also inspects work done by utilities in the public road right-of-way to ensure the safety of the residents and motorists of Delaware County.


Ohio law requires the County Engineer to be both a registered professional engineer and professional surveyor.  In addition to the engineering responsibilities of the office, the County Engineer oversees the county Map Department which maintains the county tax maps, reviews surveys for property transfers and creates subdivision lot numbers and street addresses.
