The City of Osage Beach Board of Aldermen voted unanimously to execute an agreement reappointing Judge William Washburn as the City Municipal Judge.

"He's done a great job for us, so I think this is a good requested approval," stated City Administrator Jeana Woods.

According to the City of Osage Beach website, the Municipal Judge is appointed by the Mayor, with consent of the Board of Aldermen. Washburn's new appointment will ensure he holds office for a term of two more years, beginning on July 1.

The website further states that the Municipal Judge is a licensed attorney who does not office with the City of Osage Beach. The judge is the conservator of peace and administers oaths and enforces all orders, rules, and judgments, and by fine or imprisonment for contempt of court, in the same manner and to the same extent as a Circuit Judge.

The City also voted unanimously to donate $3,000 to Benne Media for the upcoming Aquapalooza event.

"This has been a great event over the years and does a lot for our community," stated Aldermen Richard Ross. The City will receive free advertising and sponsor status from Benne Media for supporting the event.

A presentation of the 2017 Audit for the City was presented by Williams Keepers, CPA of Jefferson City. The meeting also included a discussion on a new phase of sidewalks; and approval of Aldermen Tom Walker to the Liquor Control Board, replacing Alderman Phyllis Marose.
