Lunch Meeting - Shoots Veis, Interstate Engineering
The Montana Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers recently completed an assessment of infrastructure in Montana. They have created a Report Card that grades the roads, water, wastewater, dams, irrigation canals, schools, and solid waste systems. MT ASCE is committed to improving Montana’s public infrastructure and to achieve that goal, the Report Card depicts the condition and performance of Montana’s infrastructure in the familiar form of a school report card—assigning letter grades that are based on physical condition and needed fiscal investments for improvement. MT ASCE will bring to light the condition of Montana’s infrastructure and where the need lies for upgrades, replacement, and improvements. It is intended to reveal to local and state government agencies, state legislators, infrastructure owners, and the public in general the need for infrastructure improvements and therefore the need for the necessary funding. This session will summarize the process undertaken to develop Montana’s Report Card.
Shoots Veis is a native Montanan, an engineer and actor by accident, passionate about football and politics, blessed with a fabulous family, and a world traveler. He is a Senior Project Engineer at Interstate Engineering.
