THE WILLOW SPRINGS CITY COUNCIL recently accepted an award at a council meeting from the Missouri Intergovernmental Risk Management Association (MIRMA) on behalf of the city. The award is “in recognition of participation in the association’s risk management awards program for which it has been awarded a risk management grant in the amount of $3,435.85.” The money was used for a taser for the police department, power crimpers for the electric department and cutters for the water department. MIRMA representative Kelly Beets said the grant is for members to receive up to 75 percent of the cost of items that will reduce their work comp or liability exposures. Beets said the city has been a member since the 1980’s. From left: Aldermen Danny Bradley and Susan Rackley, Beets, Mayor Jay Waggoner and Aldermen Troy Yonker and Bill Myers.
