At Thursday night’s Osage Beach Board of Aldermen meeting the focus was on communications towers. After the board took care of some business, they welcomed State Representative Rocky Miller to the stand to discuss the city’s ability to control where communication’s towers can be put after new laws took effect from House Bill 331 that the city attorney and a few others were unclear about some of the language that could possibly keep them from being able to do things the way they have been doing the rules and regulations. Representative Miller said to the board that he “wants to talk” and “Make sure things are right for the city” and promised to review the existing language and meeting with them again to make sure it protects the city’s planning and zoning commission which regulates the towers. House Bill 331 also established a protection for tower planning outside municipalities so that anyone wanting to put up a tower in rural areas would not be subject to huge fines that can come as a result of no planning or unfair county permitting situations. All other items on the agenda did pass including adding a street light to cove road, moving forward with resigning the bank contract with central bank and purchasing the necessary items for the city’s water system upgrades and repairs.
