For Immediate Release


Butler County Engineer Greg Wilkens has announced two organizational changes that become effective January 1, 2005:

Dennis E. Krall, P.E., P.S. 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 Water District.

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 Office."
