Despite the fact that more than 50 residents showed up at the last meeting of the Lake Ozark Planning and Zoning Commission to voice opposition to the move, Mayor Dennis Newberry isn’t giving up on his attempt to get the commission, and then the board of aldermen, to reverse the ordinance prohibiting nightly rentals in residential areas.

Newberry asked that it be put back on the agenda for the next P&Z meeting set for Wednesday, Dec. 7. This time he’s bringing Eric Riess, an attorney from St. Louis, and Stacy Shore to help him persuade the commission on why they should support his push.
