Processing Fee List
- Use Fees
In addition to the processing fees charged for new permits or modifications to existing permits, all docks are subject to a use fee. Owners of docks that occupy more than 3,000 square feet of water space will be charged an annual use fee based on total square footage described below. Owners of docks smaller than 3,000 square feet are not subject to an annual fee, but they will be charged a lump sum use fee when a new dock is installed or an existing dock is modified.
The square footage used to determine the use fee includes the total surface area of the dock (including the area within boat slips), lifts or other structures attached to the dock, ramps and breakwater structures. If the property has more than one dock, the total area of the individual docks will be added together to determine the fee. The area occupied and the annual use fee will be determined by Ameren Missouri.
Dock owners subject to the lump sum use fee must include the fee along with the processing fee when they submit their permit application. If the dock permit is denied, the use fee will be refunded. For docks that are subject to the annual use fee, only the processing fee should be submitted with the permit application.
Permit processing and use fees do not apply to construction activities by public agencies for public use.
If a deck or pier is approved to cantilever over a seawall or extend over the Lake, the deck will be assessed a use fee at the same rate as a boat dock.

- Enforcement Fees
Property owners who fail to obtain a permit or whose facilities do not comply with the conditions of their permit may be charged an enforcement fee, as shown on the fee list. The payment of the enforcement fee does not waive any applicable processing or use fees. Future permits will not be issued for a property until all fees are paid.
All fees collected by Ameren Missouri will be applied to Ameren Missouri’s shoreline management costs at Lake of the Ozarks.
