Huntingburg Council: New Website Unveiled, New Water Superintendent Hired

Another local community has unveiled its next website.

Last night, the Huntingburg City Council got a chance to see the city’s new website. The new website features news releases and allows for people to have a more effective way to contact the city with questions and concerns.

Huntingburg mayor Denny Spinner says the new look website is something that has been in the works:

The new website is set to be launched this upcoming Tuesday.

Also last night, the council approved the hiring of Todd Williams as the next water department superintendent for the city. Williams was most recently Business Manager/Water, Wastewater Specialist with Neikerk Engineering. Prior to holding that job, he was utilities superintendent with the Town of Winslow.

Spinner says Williams will be a great fit for the job:

Williams replaces Tony Traylor, who resigned earlier this year to take a job with Indianapolis-based Citizens Energy Group.

Williams currently holds several licenses, including WT4 Water Treatment Operator, Class 2 Wastewater Treatment Operator, and Equivalent Industrial Wastewater Treatment Operator among others. Williams also serves as president of the American Water Works Associations’ SW Indiana District and is a member of the White Oak Lake Associations’ Board of Directors among other roles.

Williams and his wife, Jenny have a son, Cayden, and a daughter, Brinley. Jenny Williams is currently an English teacher at Wood Memorial. Williams is set to start his new job on December 2nd.

In final notes from last night, the council formally approved a new salary ordinance for elected officials, which would include a 2 percent pay increase. The council has not had a pay raise in four years, but they approved raises for the mayor and clerk/treasurer office during that period. Additionally, the council approved the addition of two holidays to the city calender. They are Martin Luther King Day and Veterans Day.
