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."

Local Government Week

Missouri and the City of Lake Ozark will celebrate their employees during Local Government Week May 2-8.
The week is an ideal time to thank city, county and school employees for their dedication to keeping essential services running in their communities, particularly with the challenges over the past year.
During the pandemic, local government has been at the front lines. Their guidance, quick adjustments, flexibility and creativity have kept our communities safe; clean water flowing; the lights on; meetings open via online tools; meal services and remote learning for students; and consistent customer service for citizens.
Working together, your cities, counties and schools are the backbone of your community. Now, more than ever, they are backbone for our neighborhoods.

Local Government Is…
•The first responders who willingly walk into danger to protect your community
•The paramedics whose ambulances arrive within minutes to save lives every day
•Law enforcement bringing security and safety during uncertain times
•Your school districts quickly regrouping for remote learning, while providing meals each day in creative ways
•Your municipal utilities bringing clean water to your home and facilitating sanitary sewer collection
•Local elected officials providing guidance during this unprecedented time
•Local emergency responders working to supply necessary equipment and resources
•The case workers who are tracking COVID-19 confirmed case contacts to stop the spread so we can get back to work
•Officials taking steps for resilience and recovery in your community
•Transportation adjustments to continue service in a safe and reliable manner
•The necessity of trash service right at your curb
•City employees who continue to serve under difficult situations
•Your local main street restaurants offering curbside service when dining in is not an option
•Your friends and neighbors serving on the school board setting a direction for the next school year 
Take time this week to thank your local government employees who are working tirelessly to make sure you and your family are safe, secure and moving forward.
