Heneghan & Associates, P.C. Announces Retirement of Scott Peabody

Scott Peabody, long-time Illinois Professional Land Surveyor, was the sole remaining employee of the six original firm members that started with the Company in 1986. Scott has witnessed much progress and growth of the firm from a small handful of clients, to over 30 employees spread among four Illinois offices (Centralia, Columbia, Godfrey, and Jerseyville) serving a wide variety of both public and private clients.

Scott has been a large part of the Company’s success over the years and embodies their client service approach.  Some of Scott’s notable projects over the years have been:

  • Grafton Hills Development,
  • major water main relocation/upgrade projects for Jersey County Rural Water Company associated with the Highway 67 roadway expansion project,
  • 90 property surveys for the Illinois Department of Transportation related to the Jerseyville Bypass of Highway 67, and
  • preparing legal descriptions for the Jerseyville TIF Districts.

In addition, Scott served as past President of the Southwest Chapter of the Illinois Professional Land Surveyors Association, and was a long-time member of the Jerseyville Public Library Board.  He estimates that he has been involved with over 3,300 property surveys throughout his career.

Scott says “I have seen great advances in technology over the years, especially with computer software and automation of the drafting of plats”.  Scott resides in Jerseyville, and intends to spend more time traveling and visiting family during his well-deserved retirement.

Bob Manns, President, says “Scott’s creative talents have been a benefit to us in land surveying and laying out subdivisions over the years.  However, it is his unique ability to communicate with a wide variety of individual clients about their property surveys that will be missed.”  As part of their long-term transition planning, Josh Stumpe took over management of all professional surveying services and field personnel company-wide a few years ago.  In addition to Josh, Brandon Egelhoff and Jim Vogt are licensed Professional Land Surveyors for the firm, with Mark Baalman, Brian Eberle, and Kevin Gunterman providing field services as part of Heneghan’s multiple survey crews.
