Osage Beach may be the next city to participate in a sales tax holiday designed to help parents when they’re shopping for the new school year. Currently, the city opts out of the statewide back-to-school sales tax holiday. That means that shoppers within city limits still pay local sales tax during that period each year. Last year, the board requested that they bring the issue up for discussion in time to allow them to participate in 2019 if they so choose. They’ll begin that conversation at their meeting Thursday night. If the board chooses to rescind their opt-out, a new ordinance would be drafted and a vote would be expected at the May 16th meeting. Thursday’s meeting will have a packed agenda. Most of the items scheduled for a vote involve construction and infrastructure projects. They include reconstruction of Dorothy Lane and improvements to Rowan Road. A number of projects at Peanick Park are on the agenda, including work on the basketball court, a pavilion, and replacement of one of the dugouts on the lower field. Thursday’s meeting begins at 6pm in Osage Beach City Hall.
