Growth in the economy is happening all over the lake area, and Camdenton is no exception. Camdenton City administrator Jeff Hancock reports to KRMS news that construction valuation for the month of April saw an increase of nearly 236 percent over the same month last year. Hancock also noted that all easements for the Highway 54 sidewalk projects have now been received and will be sent to Missouri’s Department of Transportation. Once approved, the work will require approximately 4 weeks to complete. The work on the city tennis courts have been delayed due to persistent rain, but should be on track soon.
