Jeff Mueller wins award

Jeff Mueller -2018 AIC Surveyor of the Year

Jeff Mueller graduated from Rose Hulman Institute of Technology with a BS in Civil Engineering and obtained a MBA from Indiana University' Kelley School of Business.

As an engineer, primarily for mining companies, Jeff dealt with earth moving, drainage, construction permitting and more. The highlight of his career was over-seeing the reclamation of the Ayrshire Mine which was completed in 1997 and is now known as the Bluegrass Fish and Wildlife Area.

As County Surveyor, first elected in 2012, Jeff has worked with the local homebuilders' association to improve the drainage code. This has led to numerous ordinance changes and the development of checklists and other forms that are helping to streamline drainage approvals for new developments. Jeff has always made himself readily available to meet with residents, developers, and engineers to discuss drainage plans or drainage problems.

He and his wife of 30 years, Susie, have two daughters, Melissa, a senior at Miami University, and Jessica, a sophomore at St. Louis University.

Ed Thornburg

Ed Thornburg - 2017 County Surveyor of the Year

Switzerland County, Ind. (September 2017) – Congratulations to Ed Thornburg, Randolph County Surveyor, recipient of the 2017 Outstanding County Surveyor of the Year, presented at the Association of Indiana Counties' 59th Annual Conference.

Ed began his contracting career helping his father with his ditching business, laying concrete tile. A job he decided early on he wasn't going to do the rest of his life! He purchased his first piece of heavy equipment as a senior in high school. He enjoyed the thrill of making water go where it needed to, rather than where it wanted to. He gave up his contracting business to manage the County's 750 plus miles of legal drains. Before becoming County Surveyor he helped with the implementation of the County's CAFO ordinance. Since becoming County Surveyor the County has installed a one-hundred turbine wind farm and is working on a second wind farm. He hires a professional surveyor to document and replace cornerstones and has implemented the GPS's of all of the County's cornerstones.
