[ARCHIVED] Passion to serve sparked City Council tenure


City Councilman Floyd Koder has a passion for serving in his home community.
That passion to serve ignited when he began working with children in Girl Scouts and then transitioned to coaching youth sports such as basketball, soccer and softball. That led him to serving eight years on the Spring Hill Recreation Board, he said.
Elected to City Council in 2011, Koder said there are several reasons why he serves the community including maintaining quality and affordable services for residents and revitalizing downtown Spring Hill.
“I believe there is a strong need for industrial and commercial growth in our community to help offset the burden of relying on residential development for taxation,” Koder said.
“We need to have more development in the southern area of Spring Hill and continue to focus on our current industrial park area.”
A member of the Spring Hill community for much of his life, Koder has worked for the City of Olathe since 1989, he said.
“During my 28 years with the City of Olathe, I have been fortunate to work in many different roles within the wastewater and water departments,” he said. “These opportunities allowed me to transition into my current position as the Instrumentation and Controls Supervisor overseeing the maintenance and operation of the water and wastewater supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems.”
In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his wife of 30 years, Karen, and his two daughters, Jennifer, who completed a degree in molecular biology and works for Quintiles, and Shannon and her husband, Josh, who just blessed him with his first grandson last year.
He also enjoys boating and relaxing at Hillsdale Lake, golfing and riding motorcycles.
