The city of Lake Ozark appears to be back in the running for some state grant funds they were originally denied. They had applied for a $3 million matching funds grant through the Governor’s Transportation Cost Share program, but were told that application was not approved. Now the city’s been told that there will be another round of awards after some of the grant recipients failed to meet their local match or were otherwise declared ineligible. If approved, the city will use the money to start repairing streets, including possible renovations Bagnell Dam Boulevard from Quality Inn to the dam. The city would still need to provide $1.5 million in matching funds. They’re hoping voters will approve ballot measures in April that would allow them to borrow up to $6 million and implement a use tax.
