Municipal Services

Catskill CSO @Throughout our history Crawford & Associates has worked with municipal entities as their as-needed “municipal engineer” and on a per project basis. We are proud of our long-standing relationships with our municipal clients.  We attribute this to our emphasis on clear and frequent communications, strong advocacy for our clients and our project delivery process that ensures that we meet our clients’ budgets and schedules.  Additionally, we know how hard it is for municipal clients to find the resources to undertake projects that may be needed.  We stay abreast of funding sources and can help conceptualize projects based on funds available. We specialize in developing cost effective, practical, and sometimes innovative solutions to our client’s needs.  Our general qualifications can be summarized as follows:

  • Small firm service
  • Large firm diversity of services
  • Skill and experienced in technical and regulatory matters pertaining to municipalities
