As of February 1st, Lake Ozark residents will notice a change in their sewer and water deposits. Currently, the water deposit is $75 and the sewer is $34.38. City Administrator Dave Van Dee says they noticed that, especially for rental properties that are sewer only, the deposit didn’t cover the final bill, causing the landlords to lose money.
The new sewer deposit will be $125 for residential. For commercial, the sewer deposit will be raised to $250. For nonresidents, the current code says they charge 50% more, raising the deposits to $300 for residential and $600 for commercial.
