Municipalities are among the state’s busiest government entities. Local decisions are made daily by elected officials and their management teams. Among the important decisions they make are those related to maintaining a strong infrastructure, including roads, utilities, and solid waste facilities. CES is happy to provide our decades of civil and environmental engineering experience to make these decisions not just easier, but more effective.

Improving and maintaining public infrastructure requires a significant amount of financial resources. Given the importance of this, municipalities often need assistance to help them plan, design, and construct the improvements. We routinely work with our municipal clients to prioritize infrastructure improvements. We help them understand the financial impact of the improvements and plan for their implementation. Often times, we can assist with obtaining funding from state and federal agencies or help support local bonding efforts through Town and City meetings. With a plan and funding in place, CES has the ability with our diverse, experienced staff to help municipalities realize their goals.
