MRPC delivers federal legislative priorities to D.C.

WASHINGTON D.C.—Meramec Regional Planning Commission (MRPC) Chairman Gary Brown, mayor of Salem, and Assistant Director Tammy Snodgrass recently returned from a trip to the nation’s capital where they presented area legislators with the organization’s legislative priorities for the year.

Each year, MRPC board members develop a list of priority issues impacting the Meramec Region. Those priorities are divided into seven categories—transportation, economic development, health care and social services, energy, homeland security and emergency preparedness, education and local government issues.

MRPC board members are given the opportunity each year to suggest items to be included on the report, and the board then participates in a survey to determine which issues are priorities for the organization.

Once the board approves the priorities, a report is generated, and Brown and Snodgrass hand-deliver the report to legislators representing all or portions of the region at their Washington D.C. offices. This year, the pair visited with Sen. Roy Blunt, Sen. Claire McCaskill’s staff, Rep. Vicky Hartzler’s staff, Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer’s staff and Rep. Jason Smith. . . . (more)

Devil’s Elbow Bridge facelift progressing

PULASKI COUNTY—Efforts to rehabilitate the aging, historic Devil’s Elbow Bridge in rural Pulaski County began several years ago, and those efforts will soon be rewarded as the construction phase of the project is progressing.

“This is a project that began 10 or 11 years ago, and we are finally seeing the construction phase, so its very exciting,” Pulaski County Presiding Commissioner Gene Newkirk said. “It’s moving right along, and, so far, it’s been very smooth.”

The Pulaski County Commission took note of the bridge’s deteriorating condition—including severe rusting, cracked substructure and considerable soil loss near the south abutment—several years ago and began working to secure funding for a $1.3 million restoration project.

The funding for the project was found last year when the county commission was able to combine Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) Bridge Replacement Off-System (BRO) and MoDOT’s Surface Transportation Program (STP) funds with a mixture of grant monies awarded. MoDOT BRO and STP funds are covering 80 percent of the project, and the Missouri Department of Economic Development Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG) along with a small grant from the National Parks Service and a local match from Pulaski County make up the remaining project funding. . . .

CROCKER— Students at Crocker R-II Schools will have a much safer place to go when severe weather strikes this spring as a new storm shelter nears completion.

“We have an engineer on our board, and we discussed it, and it would be safer—even without doors—than the places we have been going during tornados,” Crocker R-II Superintendent Gary Doerhoff said.

Currently, the students are going to a nearby church when threatening weather moves into the area, but that could change as soon as next week. According to Doerhoff, the new shelter will transform the way the district is able to respond to hazardous weather, and the school board has appointed a safety committee to rewrite the district’s safety plan as a result. . . .
