Current Surveyor and Engineer List
"County Surveyor" was one of the original offices created by the first General Assembly when Ohio was admitted to the Union in 1803. In those early days the major function of the office was related to the clarification of land titles and governmental boundaries. Over the years, responsibilities shifted to road, bridge and ditch construction.
The office was made elective in 1831. The original term of office was three years. This was changed to four years in 1928. On August 30, 1935 the title of the office was changed to "County Engineer". Today only persons who hold certificates of Registration as both "Professional Engineer" and "Surveyor" qualify for the office of County Engineer.
