Citizen Involvement Needed: Lake Ozark Citizens interested in serving on the city's Special Events Review Committee should complete the form available at this link.   The Special Events Committee is made up of two citizens, two business owners, and representatives from local business organizations who have experience in organizing community events.  This committee is scheduled to meet on the fourth Monday of every month at 1:00 P.M. in Lake Ozark City Hall at 3162 Bagnell Dam Boulevard.  At the monthly meetings, the committee typically reviews applications for special events in Lake Ozark and meets with the event organizer to discuss the event at hand.  This group then provides a recommendation to the Board of Aldermen regarding how to proceed with the application, and identifies anything the organizer may need to improve upon prior to the event date.

North Shore considered for utility expansion

Utility services on the North Shore in Lake Ozark will more than likely be getting a thorough examination as the city looks to continue its expansion of water and sewer systems in that area.

The board of aldermen recently approved first reading of an ordinance authorizing a contract with Horner Shifrin of St. Louis for engineering services to survey the area from roughly Bagnell Eagle Stop (formerly Rick’s C Store) to the city limits on Welsh Road. Some areas of North Shore have water and no sewer, some areas have sewer and no water, and some areas have neither.

Second reading is expected at the regular Sept. 28 meeting.

North Shore was annexed into the City of Lake Ozark about two years ago.

The plan would provide a high-level conceptual plan for the utility extension layout, cost estimates and funding, and would examine future treatment capacity demands.

Public Works Director Matt Michalik explained that his department solicited proposals from several companies. The six-month project to explore areas of the North Shore that do not have city utilities. The projects will be broken into phases for construction over the next 3-5 years.

“Roads that don’t have either water or sewer will be included in facilities plan,” Michalik said. “This is a snapshot of areas that don’t have service and what it would cost to do it.”

According to Horner-Shifrin, there are multiple funding opportunities, but none of the funding agencies can fund major water and sewer projects through a single project. 

“They generally would fund a water project followed by a sewer project, or vice-versa. It is likely that you will have to submit two reports at two separate times to secure funding through these sources. But one master report can be developed and broken into two separate funding packages at a later date.
