CITY OF DENTON, TEXAS
Seeks a
CITY ENGINEER
(Salary range is in $135-145k, DOQ)

Denton 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. Denton has grown from a small frontier town, founded in 1857 to a burgeoning urbanized area with a population of approximately 131,000. 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. Fodor.com and Yahoo Travel have highlighted Denton on their list of America’s Best Main Streets to visit.

Located on Interstate 35 atop 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 a rapidly 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.

The City of Denton operates under the Council-Manager form of government. The Mayor and six-member Council are elected for two year terms; four members are elected by District and the two remaining seats plus the Mayor are elected at-large. Operating as a full service municipality, in addition to standard municipal governmental services, Denton also operates with several major enterprise operations including Airport, Electric, Water, Wastewater, Solid Waste, and Drainage. The Fiscal Year (FY) 2016-2017 proposed budget includes funding for 1,638.5 full-time equivalents (FTEs) and has an overall operating and capital budget of $1.19 billion. The City of Denton prides itself on citizen involvement, innovation and efficient use of municipal resources.

In late February 2017, the City reorganized and created a new Capital Projects Department, the sole focus of which would be the design, construction, project management, and successful completion of the City’s capital improvement and bond programs. Underneath the Capital Projects Department are the following divisions: Engineering, Streets, Drainage, and Real Estate. The City Engineer will report to the Director of Capital Projects.
