Lake of the Ozarks residents will take land dispute to court

Ameren Missouri, the utility that operates Bagnell Dam and controls the lake, announced a few years back that 1,200 or so lake homes, somehow, over decades, got built on land owned by the utility as its buffer around the water that stretches into four counties. The first of several lawsuits, which could turn into “squatter rights” cases, is set for trial June 16 in Camden County Circuit Court.
