A discussion on a proposed prescription drug monitoring program was short-lived at Thursday night’s Osage Beach Board of Aldermen meeting. Board members only asked a few questions about a draft ordinance to join the St. Louis County-based program before requesting that the ordinance be placed on the agenda for a first-reading and vote in July. Meanwhile, City Administrator Jeana Woods provided an update on research into a single-provider trash pickup service. She says they’re working with the current providers to gather data that will help establish a consumer profile for the city. That information will be used moving forward to determine the feasibility, including pros and cons, of issuing a contract to just one company. The city is 2 ½ months into a two-year research process before any decisions are made. The next update is expected sometime in the next quarter.
