Bruce Harrill of Waynesville and the Crocker Park Board were honored for outstanding service to a community during the Meramec Regional Planning Commission’s annual dinner last Thursday at State Technical College in Linn. Harrill was a 2020 outstanding local agency representative recipient and the Crocker Park Board was a 2020 recipient of the award for outstanding contributions to a city. Harrill retired after 16 years as the Waynesville City Administrator and served 12 years in the Army. Between his Army stint and the Waynesville City Administrator’s post, Harrill served as Assistant City Administrator of St. Robert. During these times, the two communities enjoyed tremendous economic growth. He was an active member of the Meramec Regional Planning Commission, Missouri Public Utilities Association, Missouri Municipal League, and is the former president of Missouri One Call. The Crocker Park Board is a team of volunteers who includes Sara Ransome, Jessica Elam, Mike, and Kelli Allen, Amy Fancher, and Jackie Scholfield. This group started new events such as a lighted Christmas parade, trunk or treat, a biennial circus, and have done enough fundraising to clear four wooded acres to expand the city park.
