Jeffrey D. Mueller, Vanderburgh County Surveyor, has been named Indiana Surveyor of the Year. The Award was presented Tuesday evening at Association of Indiana Counties Annual Banquet in Indianapolis. Mueller was selected from 92 county surveyors in the state of Indiana.
The award is given based on a Surveyor’s accomplishments and contributions to his or her county. The County Surveyor serves at the technical advisor to the County Commissioners on the subject of county-wide drainage and development that affects county drainage. In Vanderburgh County the County Surveyor also over sees the maintenance and improvements on 80 plus miles of legal drains that carry storm water to the Ohio River and its tributaries.
Upon hearing of the Award County Commissioner Bruce Ungethiem said, “Jeff Mueller is a very thorough and detail oriented County Surveyor who keeps us informed of potential problems and helps the Board of Commissioners resolve drainage problems and disputes that occur in the County. Our jobs would be much more difficult without Jeff.”
Commissioner Cheryl Musgrave added, “Jeff Mueller aids me in getting the full story about any County Drainage issue. He keeps me fully informed on drainage and development issues that require knowledgeable decision making.”
