Our mission is to provide efficient, centralized, and cost effective municipal engineering services to the citizens, as well as other divisions and departments of the city. Furthermore, we intend to be good stewards of public resources in order to enhance the quality of life in the City of Marion.

We direct, manage, supervise and coordinate the activities and operations of the Engineering Services Division with the Public Works Department including oversight of all Engineering Services.

The Engineering Department has 2 full time personnel and 1 consulting agent. The department shares a secretary with the Planning department. In the past the department had a staff of 5 people and a secretary. The 2 full time personnel also provide duties to the Planning department and Building department.

We hope that the following will show you that the efforts of this department far extend above the personnel what we have and that each employee is willing to do what ever is necessary to work with other departments no matter what the situation is.
