Did You know:
Living in the Village of Four Seasons has some tax perks! If you use Four Seasons as your address you will be charged 5.48% sales tax. Lake Ozark's tax rate is 8.23%. For those large purchases such as a car, you could save $27.50 for every $1000 spent. This savings should apply to your online purchases too!
Using Four Seasons as your address will also ensure this revenue is applied to your community rather than another municipality. This revenue maintains your hiking and biking paths, street lights, Sheriff's Department and the Village maintained parks & gardens, all in return helps your property value.
Dog Park Update:
VILLAGE of 4 SEASONS BARK PARK
(a non-profit organization)
Late last year Bark Park Committee members, along with some local residents, began plans on ways to rejuvenate the park! Several brainstorming meetings were held to come up with ways to 1) make the park more attractive, 2) raise money for the cost of maintaining the park, and 3) attract people to get more involved with the park (be it monetary donations, manual work or creative ideas).
Some ideas that came out of the meetings were:
Clean up and revamp the fencing along the front of the park.
Create a more attractive entrance.
Add dog agility stations.
Have a separate area for small dogs.
Hold fund raisers.
Have articles and/or media postings of dog park happenings.
Partake in the Four Seasons POA bi-annual garage sale (This one they did in the Fall 2017 garage sale and raised around $1,400.)
Some things that have already taken place to help the dog park with their endeavors is:
$500 donation from the Village of Four Seasons.
A lot that partially makes up the dog park was deeded over to the Bark Park by the local water company (Camden County PWSD #4).
Creation of additional parking next to the dog park via the purchase of land by the Four Seasons POA.
Donated services by Koviak Tree Service for clearing of trees on new parking lot.
Things are happening, however, there’s still more that needs to be done to reach the goals set out by the Committee. With this park being a non-profit organization it relies solely on donations (both monetary and volunteers). So, if you would like to be part of developing an asset to the community (whether you have a dog or not), please contact the following person via phone or mail.

On September 7th, 2017 Arlene Page, Crime Prevention Specialist with the Camden County Sheriff's Office, made a presentation on Neighborhood Watch programs at the Community Center for members interested in this program. Mrs. Page stated a Neighborhood Watch Program will benefit the community of The Four Seasons if enough of the neighborhood volunteers work together on a proactive manner , and meet on a regular basis.
In order to keep crime down, the POA encourages you to support local law enforcement by being observant of things going on in your neighborhood. Neighborhood Watch Programs would be independent of the Association and would be made up of volunteer groups that are not selected, appointed, confirmed or controlled by the POA.
Neighborhood Watch is one of the best known crime prevention programs in America. Its simple. Neighbors do what they ought to do - they get to know each other and keep an eye out for one another, working together to stop, prevent or at least discourage crime.
If your interested in forming a Neighborhood Watch, we recommend you organize at least 1/3 of your neighbors who are willing to participate in the program. You may go to our website, www.fourseasonspoa.com to download a Neighborhood Watch program form. Once that is accomplished, you can contact our office at 573-552-8334 to establish your neighborhood territory. Management will arrange for the Camden County Sheriff's office to meet with your group to provide the training needed and provide a Neighborhood Watch sign that will be erected in your neighborhood.
Please remember the POA encourages Owners to participate in neighborhood watch programs, but such programs are not sanctioned by the POA and are not a means of providing "Security" to the community by the POA.
