Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Due to the intrinsic characteristics of the profession and the diverse nature of the position, engineers employed by small rural municipalities may require talents different from those required of engineers employed by large organizations. However, from one municipal position to the next, the training, experience, and qualifications required are similar. The purpose of this paper is to provide an overview of the issues facing engineers in rural municipalities (cities and counties). This paper also highlights other aspects of these positions, including the qualifications, responsibilities, authority, and liability of the engineer in rural municipalities.
