Boren Appointed Police Chief: In a special meeting held yesterday, the Lake Ozark Board of Aldermen formally appointed James Boren to serve as the City's next Police Chief.   James began his employment with the City of Lake Ozark 19 years ago as a dispatcher, and was sponsored by the City to attend the Police Academy. 17 years ago, he began his career as a police officer in Lake Ozark, climbing through the ranks of Corporal, Detective, Detective Sergeant, Lieutenant, and most recently as Interim Police Chief.   Regarding his new role, Chief Boren stated, "My goal for this department is to lead it with integrity and best serve the needs of our unique community. We will continue to strive for perfection, knowing it takes work from all of us, but I'm honored and thrilled to be able to lead this department in that direction."

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.
