Denton (pop. 121,000) is a unique community, blending its historic past with a dynamic and high growth environment, coupled with a diversity to give it economic viability and strength. The historic downtown Courthouse Square is the heart of Denton; the Square and surrounding streets are vibrant and busy both day and night as a gathering place for commerce, civic events and entertainment. Located at the northern tip of a high growth area known as “The Golden Triangle” (formed by Denton, Fort Worth and Dallas), the City is a dynamic community whose rapid growth has affected its infrastructure as well as its culture. Denton is approximately 95 square miles in territory and strategically positioned approximately 37 miles northwest of Dallas and 35 miles northeast of Fort Worth. Denton is a growing community with a long history as the County Seat and the major urban center for Denton County. The City is home to two state universities – the University of North Texas and Texas Woman’s University, with a combined enrollment in excess of 50,000 students, and North Central Texas College, the oldest two-year public college in Texas.

The position of Director of Engineering Services is an exciting professional opportunity to define a new position within the organization. The primary function of the Engineering Services Department is to facilitate and plan for infrastructure development to meet the service and development needs of the City, now and as it continues to develop.

Effective with the FY 2013-14 annual budget, the City Manager has created an internal service fund, the Engineering Services Fund, with a budget of $4,067,969. The engineering functions previously budgeted in the Water, Wastewater, and General Fund are being reorganized and consolidated into the new Fund to include capital engineering, development review engineering, contract engineering, public works inspections, and real estate functions (a combined staff of 31 Full Time Equivalents) under the authority of the Director of Engineering Services. Other functions managed within the Department are design services, surveying, project administration, flood plain administration, water and wastewater modeling, and maintenance of technical specifications of the Design Criteria Manuals, Development Code, and Pavement Management Database. This new department will report to an Assistant City Manager but will not include the engineering functions of Denton Municipal Electric.

The position requires a Bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university in business, engineering, public administration or a related field. A Master’s Degree in business or public administration, engineering or a related field is preferred. A minimum of eight to ten years of progressively responsible experience in an engineering-related discipline is required. Registration as a Professional Engineer, while welcome, is not required. The successful candidate must have at least three years of supervisory or management experience. The City may elect to consider any combination of related education, experience, or certifications that will result in a candidate successfully performing the essential functions of the job.

Qualified candidates please submit your resume online by visiting our website at www.watersconsulting.com/recruitment. This position is open until filled; however, the first review of applications will take place on September 16, 2013. Following the first review date, applications will be screened against criteria provided in this brochure and the City will consider offering interviews to selected candidates. Interviews in Denton will be offered by the City to those candidates named as Finalists, with reference checks, background checks and academic verifications conducted after receiving candidates’ permission. For more information, please contact Chuck Rohre at crohre@watersconsulting.com or by calling (214) 466-2436 (direct) or (214) 608-7477 (mobile). Toll free: (877) 356-2924.
