Apperson Utility Contracting was authorized to upgrade about 3,300 feet of the city’s water main along Bagnell Dam Blvd. from Paul’s Supermarkets to the Mills Elementary school building.
Cost of the work was estimated at $242,980.
Alderman Larry Buschjost asked if there would be adequate water for fire service once the project is completed. City Administrator Dave Van Dee said the improvements would provide good water service to the area.
A three-party agreement for engineering report services for the analysis of the city’s water system was approved at a cost of $48,000. The Missouri DNR will provide 90 percent of the cost, with Lake Ozark paying about $9,800 of the project.
The analysis will determine if the city’s system meets the National Primary Drinking Water Regulations, and what might be needed if it does not.
•A hazard mitigation plan between the city and Miller County was adopted. The Council of Local Governments prepared the plan, which would provide guidance to the city in case of a natural disaster. A similar plan already exists with Camden County.
•The board of aldermen approved an ordinance accepting the voluntary annexation of Mount Carmel Baptist Church on Bagnell Dam Blvd. near W. Road.
There were no written or oral objections to the annexation request at a public hearing Oct. 8.
The annexation was contingent upon an agreement between the city and the church regarding paving of the parking lot, giving the church up to four years to complete the project.
