NAPPANEE — Four city employees – including Parks Department Superintendent Wayne Scheumann – announced their retirement.
The announcements came during the Nappanee Board of Public Works and Safety meeting on Feb. 19.
Scheumann announced his retirement from the Nappanee Parks and Recreation Department as superintendent and manager.
“Wayne has been an inspirational leader,” said Nappanee Clerk-Treasurer Kim Ingle, who worked closely with Scheumann on parks department matters, including costs, equipment and programs. “He will be greatly missed.”
Scheumann spent his entire 18-year career with the city as Parks and Recreation Department superintendent.
In 2006, Scheumann also began overseeing Nappanee’s street department as the city worked to condense departments to lower costs.
Scheumann took on the title of superintendent and manager of each department. He retired from the street department on Dec. 31.
City officials appointed Brent Warren, who had trained under Scheumann, as street department leader beginning Jan. 1.
March 23 will be Scheumann’s final day with the parks department.
Water Department
A resignation from Rodney Miller, Nappanee Water Utility, was also accepted. He will retire March 14 after 16 years of service.
Police Department
First Class Patrolman Bill Bickel also announced his retirement from the Nappanee Police Department. He has been a town police officer for 20 years.
City officials approved the hiring of Kris Hershberger as a probationary patrol officer, effective March 24.
Hershberger is a reserve officer for the Goshen Police Department. He is a graduate of Fairfield High School, and is married with two children.
City officials also approved a 50-cent per hour raise for police department clerk Nora Menzie. She completed her three-month probationary period and will now earn $13 an hour.
Fire Department
After three years of service to the Nappanee Volunteer Fire Department, Joel Lehman resigned effective Feb. 4.
