Hermann city administrator begins to see the bigger picture of planning

Posted on Tuesday, August 19, 2014 at 2:05 pm

As if he’s not busy enough managing the day-to-day workings of a local government, Hermann City Administrator Mark Wallace last week began looking at things from a broader perspective.

Wallace last Thursday joined the Board of Directors of the Meramec Regional Planning Commission (RPC), headquartered in St. James.

The city administrator — who landed in his new City Hall position in recent weeks from overseeing Hermann’s Department of Public Works — joins representatives of local governments in an eight-county area in administering programs ranging from transportation to trash management.

“I’m looking forward to it,” Wallace told the Hermann Advertiser-Courier a few days before he took his seat at the RPC table. “I think we’ve missed some things” by not being involved enough, he said. “Hopefully, we can change that,” he added.
