Engineering Division

Kreutzer BridgeThe Engineering Division is responsible for the review, planning, design and construction of the Village's infrastructure with the mission to preserve and enhance the quality of life for residents and businesses in the Village. The Village's infrastructure assigned to the Engineering Division generally includes, the roadway network, pedestrian multi-use paths, stormwater management facilities, and improvements to the utility network including potable water, wastewater and stormwater systems.

Engineering services include:

Geographic Information System (GIS)

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are computer-based tools used to store, visualize, analyze, and interpret geographic data. The data includes anything that can be associated with a location on the globe, or simply anything that can be mapped like Village infrastructure assets. There are two (2) main types of GIS data: vector data and raster data. Vector data includes spatial features (points, lines, and polygons) and attributes about that data (descriptive information). Raster data are stored electronic images (e.g., pictures taken as an aerial photograph or satellite images). Staff leverages GIS to answer specific data-related questions about infrastructure assets to identify capital needs and funding sources to maintain, improve, and expand infrastructure assets to meet the needs of the community. 

The Village GIS public portal can be accessed here:

Kane and McHenry Counties also have public GIS portals and they can be accessed here:
Asset Management (AM)

Asset Management (AM) programs leverage the inherent power of GIS to establish and streamline service levels, work activities, mobile field operations, and operational intelligence. AM is a continuous process that guides the acquisition, operation, management and disposal of infrastructure assets. The purpose of AM is to optimize service delivery and minimize the cost of any given asset over its service life by systematically tracking historical work, associated costs, establishing and streamlining workflows, managing risk and scheduling preventative maintenance. The Village of Huntley AM strategy is structured around three principles: customer service, risk management, and asset lifecycle costing that balances return on investment (ROI).

VUEWorks is the web GIS-centric AM platform that the Village has leveraged since 2018 to manage service requests and work orders. VUEWorks offers easy-to-use tools that support all levels of Public Works & Engineering staff from management to front line workers.  GIS maps and AM databases are easily shared and accessible by Village staff at their workstations and also remotely using mobile devices such as smart phones and tablets.
