CAMDENTON, Mo. - Camden County commissioners will ask voters if they want to raise taxes - but not on a ballot yet. Tuesday in Camdenton, they'll unveil ideas at a town hall meeting to gauge public opinion. The commissioners will ask residents to weigh in on tax increases for road services and the health department. Both share the same source of money - the county's general revenue fund. Camden County's health department is one of only 16 in Missouri to not have its own tax levy or mill tax to pay for its services.

CAMDENTON, Mo. -- A death trap: that's what fire chiefs from all over the Lake of the Ozarks area are calling a proposal to change fire codes.  And they certainly spoke up Thursday night at a very controversial meeting of the Mid-County Fire Protection District. For the past two months, two of the five board members of Mid-Co have been talking about revamping the fire code.  The problem is Mid-Co's chief works with three other chiefs from districts in the area and their codes are very similar.  So this change would have a wide-reaching impact and, according to nearly everyone but those two board members, a negative one. Speaker after speaker pleaded with the Mid-County Fire Protection board to take a proposal to change building codes off the table.  One guy said it nicest.
