The City of Osage Beach is coming out in support of State Representative Diane Franklin’s proposed bill to undo the merger between the Highway Patrol with the Water Patrol. Osage Beach Mayor Penny Lyons says Franklin’s bill is the right move for the Lake of the Ozarks and the state of Missouri.
Mayor Lyons also read an official proclamation Thursday night in support of National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day that is being held on January 9th. In other business from Thursday’s Board of Alderman meeting, a bill was passed amending the City’s Parks and Recreation Ordinance that slightly increases the price for pavilion rentals, authorized the purchase of a mower, a skid steer for $53,239 and a mini excavator for $69,386. The Public Works Department also recently became aware of a water well located along Osage Beach Parkway that needs to be capped according to Missouri DNR regulations to prevent ground contamination. Board approval to cap the well was given.
