Souders Is Huntingburg’s New Code Enforcement Officer



Huntingburg (Local Sources) – Long-time DNR conservation officer Kurt Souders is Huntingburg’s new Code Enforcement Officer.

The 54-year-old retired from DNR in 2015 after 27 years. Souders says he is looking forward to working with the public.

He says, “Huntingburg has always been a clean town, hopefully, we’ll keep it that way.” “I’m looking forward to getting out there and meeting people,” he continued.

Already on the job, Souders will be working three mornings and two afternoons weekly. Souders takes over for Steve Collett who resigned the post last month.

Souders told the city’s Board of Public Works Thursday, he prefers to talk with people face-to-face when dealing with code violations. “I don’t like to do a lot of paperwork. I’d rather talk to people, to see if they are aware and what can be done to fix the problem,” he says.

Souders has an associate’s degree in conservation law enforcement from Vincennes University. He lives in St. Henry with his wife, Penny.

His brother Roger is on the Board of Works, but was not involved in his hiring.

Mayor Denny Spinner, who is a member of the board, says there were 13 people who applied for the position.
