Municipal Engineering for Local Governments

Municipal and county leaders know the heartbeat of their communities – from local parks to the condition of roads. Whether navigating through a slow economy, complying with unfunded mandates, or facing a harsh winter, our municipal leaders tackle challenging situations every day. Improving roads, maintaining valuable infrastructure, and providing basic services are always top priorities, but often daunting when faced with these other issues of municipal engineering. At the local government level, doing more with fewer funds is not a cliché, but instead a call to action.

RETTEW has a proven track record with more than 150 municipalities and counties in managing important infrastructure by controlling costs, creating implementable and affordable projects, and securing funding as municipal engineers. Our local government experts design “shovel ready” projects and then obtain third-party funding via grants, low-cost loans, line item appropriations at the state level, and funding through transportation improvement programs. We understand the importance of connecting with the community and building strategic partnerships that benefit our clients. Our team also empowers municipal staff by providing professional training, helping to reduce ongoing costs of projects or operations. Whether it’s a subdivision and land development ordinance, environmental engineering design, or finding stakeholder consensus to implement a project, RETTEW’s community development staff and municipal engineers lead local governments forward.
