The NFL’s Environmental Engineering Program has a new position created specifically for environmental engineers.
The position, created in response to the 2016 flooding in Louisiana, is designed to be flexible and flexible-minded.
The program will hire a team of seven to eight engineers for a full year of work.
The first full-time engineer will start in September.
“We’re going to have to make some tough decisions,” Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a news conference Thursday.
“The first thing we’re going be looking at is how we’re managing the risks to the city and the state.”
The EPA will also hire a third engineer.
“I think that this is a great opportunity for people to come in with some of the knowledge that they’ve never had before,” Goodell said.
The city of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, has been forced to borrow $1 billion from the state and federal governments in order to keep the city open.
That’s why the program was created, but not yet approved by the legislature.
“It’s been very difficult and very hard to navigate,” Louisiana Gov.
John Bel Edwards told the Associated Press.
“They’ve been trying to do everything they can to make it work and it’s been a very challenging process.”
