During the month of April, City employee's celebrated National Local Government Week. Local government is the grass roots to our quality of life. Providing our community with vital services including park facilities; public safety; along with a variety of public work services, all of which makes our connection to our community strong.

This time of year the City of Osage Beach observes numerous celebratory weeks to bring recognition to the various facets of our governmental functions. In April, along with National Local Government Week, we recognized National Public Safety Telecommunicator's Week.

During the month of May, we give recognition to National Municipal Clerks Week; National Police Week; Public Works Week; and Emergency Medical Services Week. All departments within our municipal government are essential in building our community and we recognize and thank all the men and women who serve diligently and selflessly.

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. Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions or comments.

In 1962 President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation designating May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which that date falls as Police Week. During this time law enforcement officers across the country pay tribute to those officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

The largest of the events take place in Washington D.C. at the National Law Enforcement Memorial, however there are events that take place at the state and local levels across the nation.

A candle light vigil will be held in the Carnahan Memorial Garden in Jefferson City, on Friday, May 4th at 8:00 p.m. and a Memorial Service on Saturday, May 5th at 10:00 a.m. to honor those Missouri Officers who made the ultimate sacrifice.

Locally, we have a Lake Area Emergency Services Memorial located next to the Osage Beach Fire Protection District on Bluff Drive. This memorial honors lake area emergency responders who have given the ultimate sacrifice. Sadly, this year we will be adding Miller County Deputy Casey Shoemate to the memorial as well.

The City of Osage Beach has a wonderful group of trained and dedicated Officers, Dispatchers, Paramedics, EMT's and support staff who serve the citizens and visitors of Osage Beach. When you see them out in the public take a minute and thank them for their service or better yet, light Osage Beach up blue to honor them.
