About the Director:

After graduating from the University of Missouri in 1990 with a degree in Civil Engineering, Scott immediately went to work for the Illinois Department of Transportation in Springfield, IL. While working full time, Scott enrolled at the University of Illinois where he completed a Master’s Degree in Business Administration and began a Master’s Degree in Civil Engineering. 

In 1998, Scott moved to Boulder City to serve as the City Engineer and has lived here ever since.  He finished his Master’s Degree in Civil Engineering at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas in 2003. Scott has served as the City’s Public Works Director since August of 2005.  He enjoys the challenge of working for the City’s Public Works Department because it is responsible for all aspects of Civil Engineering. 

Thanks to a dedicated Public Works staff, cooperation from stakeholders, and support from the City Manager and Council, Scott is proud to have been a part of some of the significant projects that have improved the quality of life in Boulder City. The City’s hallmark venues such as Veterans Memorial Park and Nevada Way Revitalization projects have made an impact on Boulder City residents and visitors alike.  

When not working, Scott enjoys the numerous outdoor recreation activities that Boulder City offers.
