The Department of Engineering is responsible for providing construction project management to the City of Biloxi, ensuring that city, state and federal standards, policies and ordinances are satisfied in all construction.

The department is led by Christy LeBatard and employs about 19 people.

“Engineering plays a vital role in assisting the city to expand infrastructure,” said LeBatard, who has worked in the city’s engineering department for 13 years. “The work we do in Engineering encourages growth, quality growth.”

The department also oversees construction bidding and inspection, road closures, reviews site plans for residential and commercial development, and manages the city’s capital construction projects, which averages $2 million to $4 million a year.

Major achievements and projects overseen by the department include the BP oil spill response, restructuring of Caillavet Street and Popp’s Ferry Road, and helping coordinate the city’s $355 million Hurricane Katrina Infrastructure Repair Project, which includes city buildings, harbors, piers, water towers and utility upgrades and replacements.

Said LeBatard of the department, “Dream big, work hard, and stay focused.”

The Department of Engineering is on the second floor of the Public Works Administration Building, 214 A Delauney St. and can be contacted at 228-435-6269.
