In 2020, he was promoted to Operations Manager.

When the city receives up to 3 inches of snow, the Carmel Street Department plows only main streets such as Rangeline, Main Street, Gray Road and secondary streets such as Brookshire Parkway, Lakeshore Drive East and West, Spruce Drive and High Drive. When the city receives 3 or more inches of snow, main and secondary streets are plowed and salted as the snow falls.
After the snow stops falling and blowing, the entire city is plowed. It takes nearly 24 hours to plow the city's 560 miles of roadway and 1,100 cul-de-sacs. Salting is routinely done only on main and secondary streets. Bridges, hills, and intersections are also salted as needed.
