New Utility Engineer to Focus on Water, Sewer and Electric Projects
Position Vital as Seguin Enters Unprecedented period of Development

SEGUIN, Texas – The City of Seguin has filled a vital new position as an unprecedented period of development continues. David Rabago starts as the city’s Utility Engineer on March 2.

Rabago will concentrate on water, sewer and electric projects. The city’s aggressive capital improvement program and high level of commercial and residential development requires an engineer’s involvement. The addition of the Utility Engineer position will allow the City Engineer to focus on street, sidewalk and drainage improvements, transportation planning, Public Works projects as well as continued involvement with new development infrastructure.

“The level of development the city is currently experiencing is truly remarkable,” Assistant City Manager Rick Cortes said. “As planned residential and commercial projects move forward and more appear on the horizon, it’s essential to have David on our team to concentrate on the infrastructure needed to sustain the growth.”

Rabago, a Certified Engineer and Certified Floodplain Manager, has experience in both the public and private sectors. He spent better part of the past three years as Senior Projects Engineer for the City of San Marcos. Prior to that Rabago spent 11 years as Projects Manager for Kyle-based Cuatro Consultants. He graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2001 with a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering.

“We’re excited to have David join our team to serve the citizens of Seguin,” Cortes continued. “He’s brings in a great mix of private and public sector experience.”

City Council approved the conversion of the vacant Assistant Director of Utilities position to Utilities Engineer in the 2014-2015 budget.
