Some people who live and drive in parts of Osage Beach aren’t happy with the method the city is using to treat the roads. The oil and sand combination that has raised motorists’ ire is known as reclamite, and the city says it saves them money while also extending the lifecycle of the roads themselves. According to a statement issued by city hall on Thursday, reclamite will extend the life of the asphalt by 5-7 years before another seal coat is needed. Public Works Director Nick Edelman says this year, the reclamite is costing the city 94-cents per square yard, substantially cheaper than the $10.75-$11.50 it normally costs for a mill and overlay process. Anyone who wants to know more about the decision or the treatment itself can call Public Works at 302-2020.
