After voters approved levies for Mid-County and Lake Ozark Fire Protection Districts, now the respective chiefs have gone to work to accomplish the goals they set in those ballot issues. Mid-County Chief Scott Frandsen has already posted the opening for hiring more staff members.
Frandsen hopes to have those men in place within 30-60 days. Lake Ozark Chief Mark Amsinger says their goal is to get their new ambulance in service within a year.
Voters gave Mid-County an additional 19 cents. Lake Ozark voters approved a 30 cent levy increase.
