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."

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.
