The fundamental reason this classification exists is to perform professional engineering work reviewing public works construction and improvement projects to ensure that they are designed, constructed and inspected according to applicable laws, regulations and standards and within project budget. Incumbents are distinguished from the Civil Engineer III in that the Civil Engineer II does not have responsibility for managing entire engineering projects and distinguished from the Civil Engineer I in the level and scope of responsibility exercised. Some employees in this classification may assist, advise, or supervise lower level professional and technical employees. Work is performed with independence; however, the City Engineer is available for assistance when necessary until proficiency is achieved. Work is reviewed for adherence to policies and procedures, accuracy and completeness and for project results.
