Norfolk City Engineer Resigns

NORFOLK — City hall is looking to fill another administrative role.

Mayor Josh Moenning says last week John Heine resigned from his role as City Engineer. Moenning says the city has taken measures to fill the void.

“In the absence of a city engineer, [we] approve a contract with a local engineering contracting firm, so during that time while we search for a new city engineer we won’t skip a beat in terms of engineering services on some of the larger projects we have going on in the community.

Council members raised concerns about who would take over Heine’s role in the Norfolk Avenue bridge construction.

“We also have our Public Works Director [Dennis Smith] who has also been in on that project since the beginning who remains in place and available to continue services on that project.”

A contract with Steve Rames of McLaury Engineering Incorporated was approved at the meeting. Moenning says he’ll look to fill the vacancy in the coming weeks.
