Patrick J. Manger, P.E., P.S.
People might say that Pat Manger is completely dedicated to his job – and they’d be right. In his role as the Clermont County Engineer, Pat is dedicated to many things related to Clermont County’s 400 miles of roads and nearly 400 bridges – especially, safety.
Since becoming Clermont County Engineer in July 2003, Pat has worked diligently to ensure that Clermont County’s roads and bridges are safe and efficient for travel. He is committed to making sure roadways are well-maintained and that travelers have good access to homes and businesses.
On a daily basis, he coordinates and consults with many of Clermont County’s agencies including the Board of Clermont County Commissioners, Sheriff’s Office, County Auditor, Township Trustees and City Councils to ensure that his office’s activities and goals meet the needs of the entire county.
Pat also is concentrated on balancing the efforts needed to maintain the existing infrastructure and investments already made with the need to provide a comprehensive plan for the future. As Clermont County continues to grow so, too, will its transportation system. He has developed a comprehensive plan for capital improvements that address roadway safety and capacity issues throughout the county. Also, through better organizing, creating efficiencies in the engineer’s office (both staff and capital) he has put a financial plan in place that ensures each of the items in the plan will be completed on time and on budget.
His county engineering experiences began in college in the late 1980’s, as a summer intern with the Delaware County Engineer’s Office in central Ohio. He learned firsthand of the workings and importance of existing county roadways and the development of new ones. County engineering became his passion in college (he graduated with a B.S. in Civil Engineering in June 1989). Pat’s engineering experience complements every aspect of the planning, design & construction which makes him an excellent resource for Clermont County.
Prior to his current position, Pat held county engineering roles in small, more rural counties (Ashland County, OH) as well more rapidly expanding and developing counties (Warren County, OH). The diversity of working in counties with varying sizes and structures – with direct responsibility for strategic planning, budget, maintenance, and construction – has enabled Pat to transition into the County Engineer role in Clermont County with ease.
Knowledge of the latest highway safety laws, road specifications and industry trends is critical in the County Engineer’s role. To stay current, Pat is affiliated with numerous organizations and associations: the National Association of County Engineers (NACE), the American Society of Highway Engineers (ASHE), the National Association of Counties (NACo), the County Engineer’s Association of Ohio (CEAO), the Ohio-Indiana-Kentucky Regional Council of Governments (OKI), and the Clermont County Township Association.
One of seven children, Pat grew up in the Columbus area. He attended Ohio State University and received his Bachelor’s Degree in Civil Engineering in 1989. He has lived in Miami Township, Clermont County since 2001 with his wife Amy and their two children and is an active volunteer in the community.
Pat was re-elected to a four-year term in November 2012.
He welcomes all comments and feedback!
