We began our 2020 as busy as we finished 2019!

Departments are busy preparing for projects outlined in the budget to bring improvements and upgrades to our community. With spring at our doorstep, the Parks & Recreation Department is especially busy with pre-season maintenance in preparation for league play to begin.

This time of year, the weather can play favors or not in many outdoor projects. Public Works has recently been busy with snow events. They are always ready to respond to road conditions to keep our City roadways passable and safe! 

More about upcoming events and other information from our departments is included in this newsletter. I hope you find value in it and please know that your comments and suggestions are important! Please do not hesitate to contact me.

We are dedicated to being good stewards of our community and will continue to operate efficiently to deliver superior municipal services to our citizens and visitors.

My favorite thing about working for the City: The people I work with and meet.

One thing about me people may not know: I have had my pilot's license since 1998 and I actually took my flying lessons at Grand Glaize Airport!
What is code enforcement?

Code officials (Building Official, Fire Official, Building Inspector, Fire Inspector, Construction Inspector) play a major role in ensuring that all commercial, residential, public assembly and other buildings within a governmental jurisdiction are constructed in accordance with the provisions of the governing building code. Building code provisions address structural stability, fire safety, adequate means of egress (exits), sanitation, safe wiring and more. It is the code officials’ responsibility to protect the public health, safety and welfare in relationship to the built environment through effective code enforcement.

How does the code enforcement process work?

The process is initiated with an application for a permit to construct or remodel a building. The Building Department is responsible for processing the applications and issuing permits for construction or modification of buildings in accordance with the adopted codes. This begins with a review of the construction plans for compliance with the building, electrical, mechanical, plumbing, zoning and other local design codes. Once construction has begun, the Building, Fire and Construction Inspectors make inspections as necessary to determine compliance with the codes. If a deficiency exists or if the building or a component does not comply with the code, it is the responsibility of the code official to issue orders to correct the illegal or unsafe condition. The Building Official, and his department, ensures that official records are kept pertaining to permit applications, permits, fees collected, inspections, notices and orders issued. The documentation provides a valuable resource of information if questions arise during and after the construction process. Because construction may occur in steps or phases, the Inspectors may need to conduct multiple inspections; therefore, an exact number of inspections will vary with the particular building design and construction sequence. In addition to these requirements, the Building Official and Inspectors also assist designers and builders by interpreting the code’s application to a particular construction situation; by explaining minimum requirements, answering questions and by investigating and resolving complaints involving existing buildings and sites. Because of their commitment to building safety, our buildings stand, our communities prosper and our homes are safe.

With a new year we have new court dates. Judge Gary Smith has asked that the twice a month court dates be moved back a week, so beginning in February the Osage Beach Municipal Division will now be in session on the second and fourth Thursdays of the month.

The second Thursday of each month is the arraignment docket where new cases are heard, each defendant is advised of the charges and asked for a plea. Cases are usually disposed of on the fourth Thursday of the month in the plea/trial docket.

Here are the court dates for 2020:
January 2 and 16
February 13 and 27
March 12 and 26
April 9 and 23
May 14 and 28
June 11 and 25
July 2 and 23*
August 13 and 27
September 10 and 24
October 8 and 22
November 12 and 19*
December 10 and 17*

Court dates are also adjusted for prior commitments or holidays in which City Hall is closed.

Court is always open to the public. Anyone can step into the room and watch the proceedings. The City always bears the burden of proof beyond a reasonable doubt. The judge explains the defendant’s rights in a trial at the beginning of each session of court. 

The Court does have a dress code. Cameras or recording devices are not allowed while court is in session.
The Mayor, Board of Aldermen, Management and Staff are dedicated to being good stewards to our community and will continue to operate efficiently to deliver superior municipal services to our citizens and visitors. And, we want to hear from our community.
