Codes officer bids farewell to City

Code Enforcement Officer Trent Wempe smiles for a photo in front of the Civic Center

Our staff member with the longest tenure has retired.

Trent Wempe, Code Enforcement Officer and lifetime Spring Hill resident, retired Jan. 29 from the City of Spring Hill after a 33-year career. 

In June 1988, nearly fresh out of high school, Trent began work with the City in the Public Works department as a maintenance worker. Throughout his years, he continued in the Streets department, where he became Street Foreman and later, Street Superintendent. He was also an assistant building inspector. In 2018, Trent transferred to the Community Development department to become the newly created Code Enforcement Officer. Previously, the position was within the Police department and also included Animal Control. 

Trent’s favorite memory working for the City included a relationship with a former assistant Public Works director. 

“I enjoyed working with Gordon Riley,” Wempe said. “Gordon was involved with helping me advance positions throughout my career.” 

Widely known throughout Spring Hill for his personality and kindness, Trent has achieved one of his life goals, he said. 

“I made it to my biggest goal of retiring at a young age,” Wempe said with a laugh. He’s only 54! 

Overall, he will miss his daily friendships with fellow City employees, Trent said. But he’s excited to settle into retirement and spend more time with his wife and grandchildren.

Congratulations, Trent, on your retirement! We’ve enjoyed you and appreciate all the public service work you’ve done to serve the residents of Spring Hill, Kansas.
