Colorado Springs Utilities is hiring a Surveyor

Hey all, I work for Colorado Springs Utilities (the city of Colorado Springs) and we are seeking a land surveyor. The position is posted as a 2 year temporary but you would get all of the benefits that permanent employees would get. I highly recommend it there and I am only putting this out there try and attract real surveyors who truly care for the profession. You can PM me with questions if you’d like.

"More information would be nice but I think I understand your question with the info you have provided. Keep in mind that I am in the United States and therefore do not us the Metric System typically. That being said, I believe your question is in…"

"Yes Kate, you are right of course. Errors are most likely to be found in S/D boundaries hence the general rule is to use interior control for lots. However, nothing is cast in concrete. It is also true that the adjoining tract could have senior…"

"Interior corners hold, if original. The boundary of the subdivision is disputable. Show the error on the new plat. Do not Pin cushion the corners. We are not suppose to create conflicts among the neighbors. Not sure where you are surveying so I do…"

"I hope you are saying that "tongue in cheek". I believe I  detect a bit of sarcasm. I try to stay out of court but the last time the surveyor for the opposing party said something like that, namely, "some surveyors think they…"

Carter Douglas Grant replied to Anthony Whitlock's discussion Boundary procedure question!
"   This is what I would do.  If you have a lot that is still empty you can push all the error into it.  Otherwise, I would prorate the error, spread it around from inside to out, and call it out on the new plat.  That's…"

Boundary procedure question!

Hello all, I have a question regarding how to properly place a boundary corner/line based on an issue I found in the field. Let's say I am retracing a subdivision and am hired to mark the existing monuments or set new ones on the exterior boundary of the subdivision. While conducting my field searches I have discovered that the some of the ORIGINAL monuments for this subdivision were set further apart from each other than they were called for on the plat and one or two of them are actually set…See More

"Dear Mr. Whitlock, The correct answer is the oldest one in the surveyor's lexicon:  "It depends." In the final analysis, what you do will be expressing your professional opinion. Questions to answer include: What are you…"

Jim Thurber replied to Anthony Whitlock's discussion Boundary procedure question!
"If you are being paid to mark the true line of the subdivision then you would set a new rod on the line at the correct position. On the plat you should show that corners were found but were determined to be out of position by a half foot or so and…"
