About Us

We will do Whatever it Takes to get a Job Done without Sacrificing Quality, Promptness, and Courtesy.


All County Surveying (ACS) was formed in 1988 by Charles C. Lucko, RPLS, and consisted of Mr. Lucko and one employee. Work was done from the Lucko residence in Temple, Texas, and this continued for three years. In 1991 Melinda Lucko was brought on board as bookkeeper and office manager, and the company moved into a small, leased space in a Temple office complex. As the firm began to grow, two more employees were added.

In 1993, Robert Love, RPLS, joined the company. Mr. Love had previously owned Temple-based Surveying & Engineering company ‘Frank Martin Engineers, Inc.’ ACS still maintains many files from over 30 years of records from Frank Martin. On August 27, 2002, Robert lost his battle with Cancer. His spirit and ideas still remain a strong part of ACS.

ACS (a sole proprietorship) incorporated in 1993 and became All County Surveying, Inc. with Charles C. Lucko, president; Robert S. Love, vice president; and Melinda A. Lucko, secretary / treasurer.

In 1994, ACS purchased property, and grew to a staff of 18 people, including 3 licensed surveyors (RPLS).  All field work is performed with electronic data collection, and all drawings are produced by utilizing releases of industry standard CAD software. Five field crews operate daily; more crews can be dispatched when needed. ACS works daily in Temple, Belton, Waco, Killeen, Georgetown, and surrounding counties to perform survey work.

ACS performs most types of surveying and offers a cost proposal prior to beginning work.
Fully insured, with General Liability, Worker’s Compensation, Automobile Liability, and Professional Liability Insurance coverage, ACS does everything in writing, for our client’s protection, and for our own protection.


In June of 2018, All County Surveying moved into a newly constructed office building located at 4330 South 5th Street in Temple, TX. Stop by and see our new place!


ACS operates daily with 4 to 5 field crews (depending on work demands.) All crews are led by highly experienced field technicians, some with nearly 20 years experience, with the minimum experience being 7 years.

All field crews wear identifiable team member shirts displaying the ACS Logo. We continually strive to portray and exhibit a professional image, and works towards elevating the general public’s idea of a land surveyor. The ACS team is proud of what we do and who we are.

Chuck Lucko

RPLS #4636 President, All County Surveying, Inc.

Chuck was born in Fort Worth, Texas,  but moved to Temple with his family in 1967,  and spent his childhood and early adult years, all in Central Texas. Chuck has seen Temple grow from about 15,000 people in 1967,  to over 70,000 people in 2019. Chuck graduated from Texas State Technical College,  and moved to Houston in 1982 to begin his career in Land Surveying. After a year in the Bayou City, Chuck moved back to his hometown where he has never met a stranger! Chuck met a young lady at Temple Blueprint Company in 1987, when he stopped in the store to purchase a “fancy pencil” to take to Austin to sit for his land surveying Registration exam. The young lady manager at the store, Melinda,   became his wife in 1988, and shortly after receiving his license as a Texas Surveyor, Chuck and Melinda started All County Surveying thanks to a $5000 loan and a 1977 Oldsmobile Vista-Cruiser station wagon provided by Chuck’s dad! Chuck has been fortunate to employee many, many talented folks,  and perform work for some really great folks for over 3 decades in Central Texas. Chuck and Melinda have 3 children, two grown, and one in Middle School. Chuck and Melinda enjoy spending time in Taos, New Mexico, and Chuck spends his small amount of spare time,  playing in his Wednesday night tennis league,  or taking tennis lessons. His tennis pro says Chuck “is getting better,  but still needs some work!”
