Lake Ozark has made it a little easier for residents to apply to the city for a special event. The Lake Ozark BOA has recently decided that applicants will no longer be charged a $125 fee that was required by city ordinance for all applications. What brought the matter to the Alderman for discussion was the inconsistency in which it was applied. There was also a concern that the increasing number of events is taxing the Police Department. This wouldn’t be much of an issue if all events were made to pay this fee, yet only some are. Some of the Alderman do not think having ordinances and not following them is a good idea saying we have ordinances for a reason, yet Lake Ozark wants to show it doesn’t play favorites and so perhaps omitting the fee is best to quell all the discussion.
