City Engineer

I happened to turn on the public access channel this morning, and they had a little mini-documentary going with the one of the local towns’ city engineer. It was pretty interesting. He was driving around on the roads, looking at various problems, and bitching to the cameras about the joy of getting various corporate contractors to cooperate with the city, on things like moving wires to new poles. :) It also turns out that this city engineer does some free eyeball-consulting for city property owners having problems with things like subsidence. They don’t do any work, but he does diagnose the problem. (This is a benefit for the city too, because subsidence problems or pipe breaks will eventually affect the roads.) They also talked about various traffic flow problems, and what fixes are being implemented and why.

Anyway, it was interesting to get some context for stuff I’ve seen happening out on the roads around here.
