Mountlake Terrace City Manager Arlene Fisher has promoted Chad Schulhauser to City Engineer and Engineering Services Director. Schulhauser has been serving in the position of Interim Director since the former director retired earlier this year.

“Schulhauser was highly recommended by our former Engineering Services Director Will Van Ry, who worked with him for two years on a variety of projects throughout the city,” said Fisher. “I believe he can take the city of the future to the next level.”

Van Ry expressed that the city is very fortunate to have recruited Schulhauser to work on its Engineering team. He has shown he has the ability to provide exceptional leadership for the Engineering Services Department as Mountlake Terrace continues to implement its Town Center Plan, Van Ry said.

Schulhauser is the project engineer for the 54th Avenue West sidewalk improvements, and the project manager for the McAleer Creek Culvert replacement, the design and construction of the decant facility, and the design and construction of the Town Center Storm Water Facility.

Schulhauser began working for the City of Mountlake Terrace in January 2012. He worked as a Project Engineer for Jones Engineers in Bellingham from 1993 to 1997 and was Vice President of Millennium Engineering Group in Lynden, Washington from 1997 to 2012. Schulhauser is a State of Washington Professional Engineer, a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Accredited Professional, and has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Engineering from Washington State University.

The City of Mountlake Terrace Engineering Services Department plans, constructs, rehabilitates and reconstructs the city’s streets, traffic control systems, water, sanitary sewer, and storm drainage infrastructure. Projects that the department oversees include pavement overlays, street reconstruction, curbs and sidewalk reconstruction, new traffic signals, street lighting, water main and sewer main replacements, and installing new storm drainage.
