A lake area community is trying to get a handle on a common problem – outdoor burning. The Osage Beach Board of Aldermen has been working with the fire protection district and city attorneys to draft an ordinance establishing burn policies and enforcement authority. Trapper Meadors is with the Eldon Fire Department. He says the ordinance they have on the books has been a big help in controlling burns within the city.
The Osage Beach proposed ordinance is scheduled for first reading at the board meeting May 17th at 6pm.
