Mayor Dean Vonderheide has named Matt Kiefer as assistant street commissioner upon the retirement of the former assistant street commissioner, Scott Eckerle.

Eckerle retired on December 31, 2022.

Kiefer has been with the Jasper Street Department for a total of 23 years, two years as a part-time laborer and 21 years as a skilled laborer and as a foreman for the last four years.

Kiefer has a solid knowledge of construction, both street and storm sewer, as well as all the many tasks in which the Street Department is involved.

“His leadership and vast knowledge has led him to not only the utmost respect from his co-workers but also being a tremendous asset to the City of Jasper,” said Street Commissioner Jeff Theising.

Kiefer and his wife, Dana, have two children.
