Notice Regarding Recent Resignations: At the end of an executive session held at the October 25, 2022 City of Lake Ozark Board of Aldermen meeting, it was announced that letters of resignation had been accepted from both Municipal Judge Richelle Christensen and City Administrator David Mitchem.   Christensen’s resignation, effective December 31, was given in anticipation of her uncontested election to serve as the Camden County Prosecutor.  The letter was given in advance of this date so that a suitable replacement as municipal judge could be nominated and have ample time to prepare for the job.  It is anticipated that a nominee will be provided at the November 8 Board of Aldermen meeting, with work to begin for the new judge on January 1, 2023.   Administrator Mitchem had presented the Board of Aldermen with his letter of resignation, effective November 14, on October 12, with the Board formalizing the action at this meeting.  His notice references several successful projects from his year in the office, including identification of new revenue streams for the city, making amendments to building height restrictions to allow for development at an increased scale, and performing an assessment of employee recruitment and retention strategies.  He also cited his appreciation for the Board’s commitment to making the city more attractive for outside investment, while praising the professional staff’s skills and desire to be good public servants.  A successor to the position is expected to be named prior to Mitchem’s final day.   Of both Christensen and Mitchem’s announcements, Mayor Dennis Newberry stated “their time with the city, while different in length and workload, have transformed the way we deliver justice and do our key functions as a government.  Our board has appreciated working with both of them, and wishes them both the best in their next chapters while we welcome new team members to those roles.”

Bagnell Dam Bridge to close for repairs starting Tuesday, Sept. 7

Bagnell Dam road (Business 54 bridge) will be closed for reconstruction beginning Tuesday morning, Sept. 7.

The purpose of the project is to repair the bridge deck, expansion joints and barrier walls and to replace the bridge driving surface and repair the adjacent sidewalk. Rehabilitation is necessary to extend the life and usability of the bridge. The existing Bagnell Dam Bridge was built in 1929.

The project was approved by the Highways and Transportation Commission and the low bid was awarded the project to Concrete Strategies, LLC., which submitted the low bid of $1,611,862.
During construction, the road will be closed at the bridge for approximately three months. Motorists will need to use an alternate route while work takes place. Use Rt. 242 from Highway 54 to access Bagnell Dam Blvd., Horseshoe Bend Parkway and Osage Beach Parkway
Motorists can use the round-a-bouts at the new intersection near W Road Eagle Stop (formerly Rick’s C-Store) to access W Road. 

Prior to work starting, MoDOT will alert the public through signs and social media.
