A slight controversy arose during the Osage Beach Board of Aldermen meeting Thursday night. Toward the end of the meeting, Aldermen Kevin Rucker and Phyllis Marose spoke up about their concerns regarding the proposal to raise the tobacco age from 18 to 21. Mayor John Olivarri said they planned to have it on the agenda for the next meeting, but he didn’t want to do so if the majority of the Board would vote against it. He proposed holding a quick vote to see if it would be worth City Attorney Ed Rucker’s time to write up. City Attorney Rucker then interjected saying that doing these things would be in direct violation of the Sunshine Laws, but he planned to write up the proposal for the next meeting, scheduled for May 4th.
