Terry Killen joined the Carmel Street Department in 1991. He was promoted to a Foreman position in 2001, then to Operations Manager in 2007. Terry is a Certified Heavy Equipment Operator, an LTAP Road Scholar (Purdue), a Certified Public Manager (Ball State) and holds a class A Commercial Driver’s License. Terry and his wife, Mary, relish spending time with their 6 children and 9 grandchildren. In his free time, he enjoys competitive bass fishing, participating in 8-12 tournaments per year.
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.
