NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) - The city of Natchez is working to create a new department to meet its engineering needs.

The Natchez Democrat reports (https://bit.ly/1ws2Ywi ) the Board of Aldermen and the board of Natchez Water Works met Tuesday to discuss the transition of the city from contracting engineering services with Water Works to having its own engineering department.

Natchez Water Works is owned by the city, but operates independently with its own board. It has for many years contracted with the city through an inter-local agreement to provide engineering services.

Water Works Superintendent David Gardner, who also serves as the city engineer, said Water Works has worked up an engineering department for the city to adopt.

The proposed budget for the department is approximately $222,000.
