The Palmerston North City Council now has two engineers holding national positions of appointment in two separate organisations.
Technical Services Manager, Mohamed Imtiaz, has been appointed to the governing board of directors of the Institution of Professional Engineers, New Zealand (IPENZ) following its annual forum at the weekend. IPENZ is the professional body which represents professional engineers from all disciplines in New Zealand.
Mohamed Imtiaz, who graduated from University of Peradeniya, Sri Lanka, is a NZ Chartered Professional Engineer. He has successfully project managed some of the largest projects undertaken by Council, the most recent being, redevelopment of the Square and the Totara Road wastewater treatment plant upgrade.
City Enterprises General Manager, Ray McIndoe, is the other Council engineer already serving at a national level. He is a long serving national executive member of INGENIUM, the Association of Local Government Engineers in New Zealand, and he recently project managed the replacement bridge across the Pohangina River at Ashhurst.
The appointments recognise the professional standing of Palmerston North City Council engineers nationally.
