Lake Area municipal officials don’t have to travel very far this year to get to the Missouri Municipal League Conference. The 83rd annual MML gathering is expected to bring in nearly 700 city officials from around the state and is taking place at Tan-Tar-A in Osage Beach. The business meeting will cover several topics including, among others, personnel law and the sunshine law. After an opening reception Sunday evening, the MML gets down to business today with a 9am keynote by Jason Roberts on “Building a Better Block,” to be followed by concurrent sessions. The MML conference continues Tuesday morning with the election of officers and will come to an end with the closing keynote on Wednesday morning.
