3/8 cent Transportation Sales Tax
Voter Approved on April 2017
Thank YOU for supporting the 5-Year Plan for Transportation:
When the citizens of Ozark voted to approve our first ever Transportation Sales Tax in April 2017, it was a clear message to city leaders that they wanted to see transportation improvements. Many local street and sidewalk improvements have already been completed, and throughout the next 5-years more will take place throughout our community. Significant progress has also been made on our large scale partnership projects with MODOT, Christian County, and Ozark Special Road District. These projects are progressing in a timely manner and are almost through the engineering, design, right of way acquisition and environmental study stages. More details on these large projects and all of the local projects can be found below in the "Project Update" section.
We are dedicated to fulfilling these commitments to improve our community, improve safety, and continue expanding our economic development opportunities.

Funding the 5 year plan
Please keep in mind that this is a 5-year plan so all projects you may want to see cannot be completed in a single year. As the City only receives sales tax funds from the Missouri Department of Revenue (DOR) on a monthly basis, and the fact that the state laws didn’t allow the DOR to begin collecting the new tax until October 1, 2017, the City has only received funds from this sales tax for the months indicated below.
If you have any questions about funding or the projects please feel free email Spayne@ozarkmissouri.com.

RIVERSIDE BRIDGE UPDATES
Greenbridge Road will be closed September 21-27, 2020
The purpose for this closure is to construct the new alignment and roadway improvements that will connect Riverside Road to the newly erected Riverside Bridge. Crews will begin final grading, install the compacted base, lay the black base and prepare the roadway for the final top coat of asphalt.
We are extremely excited about this project coming to fruition and we thank you for your patience and understanding. Please refer to the map for alternative routes during this road closure.
