Shannon Holmes, Public Works Director
In 1995, Shannon graduated from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in Terre Haute, Indiana with a Bachelors Degree in Civil Engineering. After college, he worked as a Project Engineer on federal-aid bridge and road projects for AECON, Inc. in Bloomington, Indiana. His project experience ranged from a simple 3 span precast box beam bridge to a wooden covered bridge rehabilitation and enhancement with park amenities and hiking trails.
During the past seventeen years, in both the public and private sectors, Shannon has been involved in the management of diverse projects such as bridges, roads, and water and sewer rehabilitation. In these capacities he acquired the skills and abilities to work with local and state authorities, private developers, engineering and architectural consultants, and construction professionals on numerous projects.
Relocating to Livingston in 2005, Shannon worked for TD&H Engineering as a Project Inspector and ultimately Construction Manager. While working on various municipal projects, such as N 19th Avenue and Valley Center Road SID, N19th Avenue and Oak Street Intersection Improvements, Belgrade SID 78 and the Yukon Tank Water Main Extension for the cities of Bozeman and Belgrade, he realized his passion for working with and for the citizens of a community. In 2011, Shannon left TD&H Engineering to become a Water and Sewer Operator for the City of Belgrade. In this position he gained valuable experience in the daily operation and maintenance of a city’s infrastructure.
Shannon has been a resident of Livingston for 8 years. When not at work, he enjoys fly fishing, hunting, rafting, gardening and spending time with family and friends. As the City of Livingston Public Works Director, "Know that I will work diligently to ensure the infrastructure in our beautiful city is adequately maintained."
It is in Shannon's blood to work in the public sector; his father retired from the National Park Service in Yellowstone National Park after 35 years working for the federal government, and his brother is the Public Works Superintendent in Healdsburg, California.
