Public Works Director, Mike Rogers

Director of Peoria Public Works Mike Rogers is dedicated to improving the quality of the City’s infrastructure through management and overseeing the direction and budget for the six divisions of the Department: Engineering, Streets & Sewers, Facilities, Traffic, Fleet and Administrative. Improving communication amongst the public is one of Mike Rogers goals as he believes it is imperative for the department to build trust with our community residents and visitors. Utilizing green infrastructure to satisfy the combined sewer project are one of the improvements Mike Rogers is currently working on. Developing more programs and providing a sustainable community would be ideal as we move forward. As Director, he has been instrumental in changing the philosophy of Public Works through data driven programs where the Department is able to develop plans for future sustainability of the community.

Director Rogers believes in providing a high level of customer service, along with an effective government and transparency about the City’s Capital Improvement Projects (CIP). He has changed the relationship with the City residents by providing regular community meetings, where he has incorporated many of the suggestions from the homeowners. Rogers believes in safety, not only for the employees, but for the public and has developed a strategic plan for maintaining and improving the City’s streets and roads.

Prior to joining Peoria Public Works in July 2013, Director Rogers was Assistant Director of Public Works for San Antonio, Texas and before that, Director of Roads in Wayne County, Michigan. His experience includes 24 years in City and County government where he has been influential in the engineering and development of the infrastructure of buildings, roads and other Capital Improvements Projects. He has been involved in all aspects of public service as an engineer, manager, supervisor and consultant. In addition, Rogers is currently serving on various different boards in the city of Peoria. Some of them include the Board of Salvation Army, Advisory board of the Tri-county Urban League, Kiwanis SW Peoria Board, Bradley’s I-CAT Operations and Equipment, and the IL 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.
