Experience makes Hanneman ..., 11 Jan 2010 [cached]
Experience makes Hanneman 'go-to' guy
There are probably one or two decisions at every area-wide Planning Commission meeting that its chairman, Leo Hanneman, feels proud of.
"Leo's been our go-to historian."
For Hanneman, the city advisory board tenures have been more sources of gratification than merely public service, he said.
Despite serving through three comprehensive city plans over the years, the planning chairman said not too many controversies have crossed his table.
Instead, Hanneman said he's been able to oversee and protect the residential, commercial and industrial growth of Garden City and encourage individuals who have run into obstacles -- sometimes the planning department officials cannot "make things happen" because of "black and white regulations" -- to turn to his board, "a group of peers and fellow citizens," to make a list of recommendations or come to compromises. That kind of service is what keep him returning to the board for future terms.
"You just kind of get hooked," Hanneman said. "What you're there to do is study people's problems and bring about a change, ultimately to help these same people."
And though he may call it retirement, the 1948 high school graduate and former U.S. Air Force police sergeant has been busier than ever, not only returning to his job as a salesman at Garden City Auto Parts, 2104 W. Jones Ave., but continuing his work on advisory boards and directors' boards across the community. Hanneman has served on the Garden City Board of Zoning Appeals for 16 years and is currently its chairman, has been on the Garden City Area Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors for five years, has been with the Finney County Convention and Tourism Bureau, is a past president and secretary-treasurer of the Garden City Noon Lions Club for 25 years and also serves on Garden City Community College's Auto Technician Committee advisory board. Hanneman also has served on the Golden Plains Credit Union Board of Directors for nearly four decades, since 1971.
In 2005, the Garden City Area Chamber of Commerce recognized Hanneman with an Award of Merit, making him the 22nd recipient of the annual award designed to honor a local community member for his or her volunteer work.
Hanneman said he's humbled by much of the recognition, but he volunteers to help others, not to win awards.
"My only problem is that I've never found a volunteer job that pays," he said and laughed.
