Public Works Director, Mike Rogers

Peoria Public Works Director Mike Rogers is dedicated to improving the quality of the City’s infrastructure through best management practices and providing high levels of customer service to businesses, residents and visitors alike. Rogers oversees the seven divisions of the Department: Engineering, Streets and Sewers, Facilities, Traffic, Fleet, Urban Forestry and Administration which includes the management of Solid Waste. Improving communication with the public is one of Rogers’ goals and he believes it is imperative for the department to build trust within our community.

As Director, he has changed the philosophy of Public Works by developing future plans for sustainability of the community, and a strategic plan for maintaining and improving the City’s streets and roads for public safety. By providing this high level of customer service, he has changed the relationship with the City residents by providing regular public meetings and incorporating many suggestions from the community at large.

Director Rogers is currently working with the EPA on the combined sewer outflow project by developing a 100% green solution that will not only correct the outflow problems, but will provide co-benefits such as work force development and neighborhood economic opportunities.

Prior to joining Peoria Public Works, Director Rogers was Assistant Director of Public for San Antonio, Texas and previously Director of Roads, Wayne County, Michigan. His experience includes 24 years in City, County and State government where he has been influential in economic development through engineering and re-development of the infrastructure, and has been involved in all aspects of public service as an engineer, manager, supervisor and consultant. In addition, Rogers is currently serving on various boards through the State and Peoria region including: The Salvation Army; Tri-County Urban league; Kiwanis SW Peoria; Bradley University Civil and Construction Engineering; I-CAT Operations and Equipment and American Public Works Association (APWA) State Chapter.

Originally from Michigan, Director Rogers has an MS in Civil Engineering from Michigan State University; a BS Construction Engineering degree from Lawrence Technological University; and a fellowship from the County Leadership institute, New York University’s Graduate School of Public Services. Director Mike Rogers is married and has four children.
