Hittin’ the street: Meet our new superintendent

IMG_3350-edited

     You might notice a new face out on our streets. 

     Kevin Sawyer, our new street superintendent in Public Works, is here and ready to work, he said.

     Sawyer filled a position left vacant after former superintendent Trent Wempe transferred to our Community Development department as the Code Enforcement Officer. 

     After starting in August, Sawyer already has goals for his time here in Spring Hill, he said. 

     “The City has two major projects going on now, Lincoln Street and Veterans Park. While getting a grip on these two projects to keep them going, there is a need of prioritizing the existing road conditions and making repairs as needed. The repairs to streets won’t happen overnight but we are making changes to what and how we are repairing things. 

     “[I want] to make changes as needed to be more cost effective in what we do.”

     Sawyer, a former road foreman of asphalt roads for Miami County, said he chose Spring Hill for its small-town feel and its access to all the assets of Kansas City.

     “I feel it will be a great fit,” Sawyer said. “I grew up in a small town in western Kansas and liked it. You have access to most anything you want just north of here but don’t have to live or work in the city.  I originally lived in Overland Park and kept moving outward until my wife, Nicole, and I settled in central Miami County 25 years ago.” 

     In his free time, Sawyer said he enjoys spending time with his wife, Nicole. 

     “We enjoy the normal outdoor activities including gardening, pool time, camping and we both ride motorcycles when we find time. Family keeps us busy with kids and grandkids.” 

     To contact Kevin, call Public Works at (913) 592-3317. To report an issue with a street in the Spring Hill city limits, visit our website at www.springhillks.gov/RequestTracker.aspx
