Missouri’s governor has appointed former Columbia Mayor Brian Treece to the state Highways and Transportation Commission.
Mr. Treece served two terms as Columbia’s mayor from 2016-2022, and infrastructure was one of his top priorities.
Mayor Treece signed his name in December on the final beam of the $23-million new terminal that’s being built at Columbia Regional Airport (COU). He also joined Governor Parson at the October groundbreaking for the massive $240-million I-70 Rocheport bridge project. As mayor, Mr. Treece also pushed for the successful Gans Creek cross country course and the Columbia Farmers Market.
Senate Majority Leader Caleb Rowden (R-Columbia) tells 939 the Eagle that he will sponsor Mr. Treece’s nomination in the Senate, adding that “he will do a great job.”
