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.”

242 Land Divided For Sale

A piece of property along Rt. 242 in Lake Ozark is now available for development after the Lake Ozark Board of Aldermen recently approved an application to subdivide the land.

The board adopted a recommendation from the Planning and Zoning Commission to subdivide 66.3 acres along Rt. 242 into three parcels of land currently owned by LPS One, LLC. Longtime resident, landowner and developer George Stanton is a representative of the LLC.

The lots are on the north side of Rt. 242 near the area of the old asphalt plant.

There are not yet public utility access points within the area proposed for subdivision.

Because the board approved the preliminary plat, the land is now suitable for future commercial or residential development since the lots meet requirements of a Planned Unit Development (PUD), as it’s presently zoned.

A closing on the property was scheduled for Sept. 17. According to a Realtor involved in the closing, buyers for Lot 2 have begun the process of researching utility extension and installation needs.

The land is within the Horseshoe Bend Tax Increment Financing (TIF) project area which was originally reviewed by the Lake Ozark Board of Aldermen in 2006 and enacted in 2016.

The opening of Rt. 242 took place 10 years ago.
