The County Engineer is elected every four years and must be a registered Professional Engineer and Surveyor in Ohio. As the county's surveyor and civil engineer, the Engineer designs, constructs and maintains the county road system, including county bridges, guardrails, and signs. The Engineer also works with township trustees in providing snow removal during the winter season and maintaining township roads throughout the year.
Funded primarily through state motor vehicle license fees, the Engineer's office maintains the Auditor's tax maps used for reviewing deeds, land transfers, and lot splits.
In Allen County, the Engineer is directly responsible for the maintenance of 340 miles of county roads, 520 miles of township roads, ten traffic lights and 420 bridges.
