Evansville has new City Engineer

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - Mayor Lloyd Winnecke announced Tuesday that Brent Schmitt has been appointed as the new City Engineer.

He was previously with the Indiana Department of Transportation.

Schmitt says he feels that his past relationships with INDOT will help him address problems should they arise in the future, "I will be able to sit down with people I know on a first-name basis to determine what's in the best interest of the City of Evansville as well as the State of Indiana, and to reach an agreement that satisfies the needs of all users of our roadways."

Schimtt's first day as City Engineer was actually Monday.
