Dock Permitting Requirements
All docks at Lake of the Ozarks require a permit prior to placement by following the permitting process. Dock proposals must also follow the Ameren Missouri's permitting guidelines for proper construction and placement. To increase dock safety, the local fire protection districts and Village of Four Seasons require electrical inspections and permits for all private boat docks served by electric power. The electrical permit is in addition to the dock permit issued by Ameren Missouri and requires a fee paid to the local fire department.
