The Engineering Department is responsible for managing and securing financial funding for infrastructure projects, which includes roads, bridges, culverts, storm sewers, sanitary sewers, septic systems and waterlines.

Considering that Parma is the largest suburb of Cleveland and the seventh-largest city in Ohio, securing funding for infrastructure projects is a top priority. City engineers and staff continuously and actively seek and apply for outside funding sources to lessen the financial burden to the city, residents and local business.

The Engineering Department partners with the Ohio Public Works Commission, Army Corps of Engineers, Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District, Cleveland Water Department, Cuyahoga County Public Works, Ohio Environmental Protection Agency, Ohio Department of Transportation and Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordination Agency for funding assistance in the form of grants, zero-percent loans and low-interest loans to cover infrastructure improvement projects.

Engineering also oversees construction in the public right-of-ways,  participates in zoning codes enforcement and monitors the enforcement of ordinances that govern grading and drainage on private properties.

The department’s mission is to provide and coordinate city-related engineering services, as well as direct capital-improvement projects, storm-water management projects and environmental improvements that benefit residents, property owners and businesses.
