Underage Drinking Crackdown in Lake-Area Town

If you are under 21 and caught drinking alcohol in the city of Lake Ozark you could spend some time in jail.

The city’s board of alderman has made some changes to the code concerning minors in possession of alcohol. The old law had been in effect since 1966, and fined underage drinkers between 50 and 100 dollars.

Under the new ordinance – which brings the city code in line with state statutes – minors caught with alcohol will be fined up to $500 and could spend up to 90 days in jail.
