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."

Commercial construction part of $10.3 million growth

There was some $10.3 million in new construction in Lake Ozark last year including both residential and commercial projects.

We recently featured several of the residential properties and now here are a few of the more visible commercial/retail projects. There have been many remodels and expansions that aren’t openly visible to the public but certainly add to the progress and tax base of the Lake Ozark community.

And, there are several other projects on the docket for 2021-2022 that we hope to feature as they develop.
