Dubois County surveyor Kenneth Brosmer is planning to seek another four years on the job.
The 55-year old Brosmer announced yesterday he is running for re-election. He has been the county surveyor since January 1993. A licensed surveyor, Kenny started Brosmer Land Surveying, Inc. in 1990 and sold the business in 2013.
A 1979 graduated of Jasper High School Brosmer received a bachelor’s degree in land surveying from Purdue University in 1983. He is a member of the Indiana Society of Professional Land Surveyors and the Indiana County Surveyors Association. In 1997, he was named Outstanding County Surveyor in Indiana.
He is a past member of the board of directors of the Dubois County Museum and a member of St. Joseph Catholic Church, Ireland Knights of Columbus, Redevelop Old Jasper Action Coalition, Ireland Historical Society and the Dubois County Purdue Alumni Club. In 2006, he was named a member of the Jasper High School Alumni of Distinction.
Brosmer’s hobbies include golf, hiking, forestry and restoring old log houses and barns. He and other volunteers collaborated to reconstruct the Schaeffer Barn along the Jasper Riverwalk and the log house in the county museum.
In a news release Brosmer says he looks forward to continuing the work of marking all of the corners in the county with GPS locations as well as the traditional marking descriptions.
He says few Indiana counties have started marking corners with GPS locations, and that over 70 percent of the work in Dubois County is complete.
Brosmer and his wife, Anne, are the parents of two grown children.
