    • Update and maintain traffic signal timing reflective of traffic demands.
    • Actively seek outside funding sources for Capital Improvement Program (CIP) projects to address traffic and transportation problems.
    • Respond to traffic inquiries raised by citizens and other interested parties.
    • Conduct Engineering and Traffic surveys to ensure that speed limits are enforceable, that the key arterials are routinely monitored and operating as effectively as possible and that high frequency accident locations are identified and mitigated.
    • Work with school districts to identify school traffic safety issues.
    • Assist with the development and design of Capital Improvement Program projects to assure that all pedestrian, bicycle and motor vehicle needs are being addressed to maximize public safety, code compliance and efficient mobility.
    • Issue transportation permits for oversized vehicles and loads
    • Review and provide comments on private and public development projects, long-range planning efforts, traffic impact studies and environmental impact reports.
