County engineers and staff from across Iowa, along with consultants and material/equipment vendors, are gearing up for the 70th annual Iowa County Engineers Conference taking place December 6-8, 2016. The focus of the event is to provide county engineering staff with key information for the design, construction, and operation of transportation systems. In addition, the event serves as a networking opportunity for county staff, industry consultants, and vendors.
Expected highlights of this year’s conference include presentations and discussion regarding:
Jerod Gross, P.E., Brenna Fall, P.E., Nate Carhoff, P.E., Dave Sturm, P.E., and Michael Geier, P.L.S., will be among those in attendance on behalf of Snyder & Associates, Inc.
With more than 30 years of industry experience, Geier will provide insight into the new Iowa Code Section 355.6A – Monument Preservation Certificate during a presentation at 2:30 pm on Wednesday. Prior to adoption of this section, the Iowa Code did not address the preservation of existing monuments marking property corners that would be destroyed as part of construction projects. The new code section serves as a mechanism to identify, describe, and replace existing monuments without surveying complete boundaries or parcels of land.
In addition to the presentation, Snyder & Associates will have an exhibitor booth at the event.
“I look forward to discussing opportunities to improve pavement conditions within the county road system,” shares Gross, while reflecting upon the upcoming conference.
Three key areas of interest that Gross is prepared to speak with county engineers and staff about are:
