Encroachment Agent

The Encroachment Agent is responsible for issuing permits for work performed in a county right-of-way. Applications with drawings of projects are submitted to the Encroachment Agent and the project is researched, a field review is done and permits are issued.

A final inspection is performed to close the project and to ensure the work was properly accomplished per state and/or county specifications. The encroachment agent also serves as a Purchasing Agent and is responsible for procurement of office materials, county signs, safety equipment and supplies as needed by the field crews.
