Butler County Engineer
Greg Wilkens has announced two organizational changes that become
effective January 1, 2005:
Dennis E. Krall,
moves from Engineering Deputy to Construction Deputy, filling
a position that has been open since the passing of BCEO veteran
Scott Harris last summer. As Construction Deputy, Mr. Krall will
oversee the Construction and Inspection Department and retain
his role as township-governmental liaison and coordinator of
state and federal grant funding.
Employed by the Butler
County Engineer's Office since 1974, Krall started as a co-op
student in 1972 before graduating from the University of Cincinnati
with a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering. During his 30-plus
years at the BCEO he has served in various capacities, including
Assistant Design Supervisor, Bridge Inspector, Deputy Engineer
of Operations, Engineering Deputy, and township liaison. He holds
a dual registration as a licensed Professional Engineer and Professional
Surveyor (P.E. and P.S.).
Mr. Krall has two grown
sons and lives with his wife in Fairfield Township.
Dale J. Schwieterman,
P.E. has been
promoted to Engineering Deputy, enabling Krall to fill the Construction
Deputy role. Mr. Schwieterman assumes responsibility for the
Engineering and Design Department as well as commercial and residential
development services, tax mapping, and the Butler County Storm
Before coming to the
BCEO in 1996, Schwieterman was employed by Hazelet & Erdal
Consulting Engineers as a Bridge Design Engineer. While at the
Engineer's Office, he has served as a Bridge Engineer, Lead Design
Engineer, and Engineering Manager. He graduated from the University
of Cincinnati in 1994 and received his registration as a licensed
Professional Engineer (P.E.) in 1998.
Mr. Schwieterman lives
with his wife and two children in Liberty Township.
"We are blessed
to have an organization full of quality individuals like Denny
and Dale," Wilkens said. "The unfortunate loss of Scott
Harris that we experienced this past year forced us to look at
his position and the future of the BCEO. With so many good people,
it was inevitable that we should make any moves from within.
Denny is a respected veteran of our Office and has broad experience
across the entire organization. Dale is one of our bright, young
engineers with solid credentials and strong leadership qualities.
I am confident that the transition will be smooth and that these
moves ensure a solid and progressive future for the Engineer's
