Construction of the new “Hollywood-style” Lake of The Ozarks welcome sign is nearly ready to begin. Lake Area Chamber of Commerce Beautification Committee Chairman Joe Roeger spoke to Lake Ozark alderman last night and asked them to provide the ground breaking ceremony for the sign on May 1st. There was also an update of the cost: $52,000, which was the low bid. Roeger asked the Board for additional support at some point as the Host City. The plan and desire is to have the project completed by July 4th for all to see. This includes all the fundraising as well as the sign itself.
