After several deadly accidents at Lake of the Ozarks over the last year, The Osage Beach Fire Protection District wants to make safety adjustments. Currently, the district is proposing to expand dock inspection requirements. Osage Beach Alderman and realtor Fred Catcott said the proposal is beneficial to those who use the lake.
“It gets rid of the people that want to go the cheap way out and not get them brought up to date," Catcott said. "[It] will grossly improve the safety of the lake.”
