Do I have to have my home remodeling project approved by the City?
If the remodeling project involves changes to the exterior of the home and/or room additions that change the footprint of the home on the lot so that setbacks would need to be measured, the Design Review Committee will need to review the remodeling plans.
What are the specs for a composite roof and how do I go about getting one approved?
The minimum composite roofing specifications are: 50-year warranty, 100 mph wind rating, architectural in design and earth tone in color. A pre-approved listing of materials is available–if an item meets the minimum specs but are not shown on the pre-approved list, then the Design Review Committee will need to meet to approve the choice. The committee will then need a sample board of the material and a brochure that highlights the specifications.
How is my sewer bill calculated?
Your sewer bill is calculated on your actual water usage. You pay a $29.52 flat rate that is for debt reduction, and then an additional $3.85 per 1,000 gallons for actual water usage. During the summer months of May through October, we automatically provide an averaging program for your sewer charges (this is the average of your January, February and March water usage—sewer charges are tied to water usage). If you have no water usage, or minimal usage, during January, February and March, you will be billed a minimum of 7,200 gallons of water, which the City of Ozark calculates as the usage for the average household. This gives residents a break on at least their sewer charges for the summer months when you typically use more water. If you go on vacation for an extended period of time and have your water turned off, you will still be charged the minimum fees for water ($11.97) and sewer ($29.52).
