 Making Ozark Better - Projects

The Ozark Public Works Team would like to thank everyone who participated in the Annual Spring Cleanup!  The City of Ozark is one of the few communities that offers this free service to our citizens each year. So we will be back out cleaning up once again next Spring.  However, if you cannot wait a year, which is completely understandable, there are locations where you can haul your limbs and yard waste for a fee. We have provided some links to those facilities below.

2020 Paving Projects 

The Board of Aldermen unanimously approved the 2020 Paving Bid and the City of Ozark along with the awarded contractor, Journagan Construction, began reconstructing streets throughout the neighborhoods of  Kali Springs  and Eastland Heights.    

Crews began in the spring of 2020 by making the necessary stormwater improvements throughout Kali Springs.   Several of the storm boxes and storm inlets had settled, pipes were obstructed and the system was not properly conveying runoff.  

Once the stormwater repairs were completed, crews were able to pave both phases of Kali Springs.  The neighborhood home owners association worked with the City closely to mitigate the negative impacts that can occur during construction.  Overall the project was a huge success and came in under budget.   A big thank you to the Kali Springs HOA, for helping us with the communication and logistics.  

In 2020 Public Works Crews also began a multiphase project in Eastland Heights.  Within this older neighborhood there were several infrastructure challenges.  Hundreds of feet of water and sewer lines needed to be replaced along with several stormwater improvements constructed.  Crews finished the below grade repairs in 2020 and will proceed with the remaining curb and gutter as well as the final lift of asphalt in 2021.    See Phasing Plan Below:
