Some of our current efforts include roadway maintenance, bridge maintenance and replacement, congestion relief, countywide GIS, transit, development services and survey.
Prior work experience includes 13 years with the City of Ripon. Ripon is where my engineering career began. After being hired full time in 1994 and obtaining required work experience, I became a registered civil engineer. In 2000 I was promoted to the City Engineer position.
