Who lied about CITY HALL not needing a FIRE SPRINKLER SYSTEM to cover the whole building that the City DOSE NOT EVAN OWN! Was it JOHNNIE FRANZESKOS, JERRIE BARFIELD, or JIM DOYLE, the FIRE MARSHAL for the LAKE OZARK FIRE PROTECTION DISTRICT or was it all three?

Johnnie Franzeskos being a x-fireman himself and our Mayor back at that time and for GOD knows why, still to this day. The Mayor should have the City's best interest at hand all the time or it could seen as a culpable OFFICIAL NEGLIGENCE or a DERELICTION of his OFFICIAL DUTIES by putting CITY employee's at risk, and endangering the lives of the citizens of LAKE OZARK. Both charges are grounds for IMPEACHMENT according to the City code ARTICLE 1 Section 105.010

Jerry Barfield he was the acting CITY Administrator at that time. He was the one who redesigned the new CITY HALL. After not getting the right building permits, making unauthorized changes to the building structure, and going way over budget, he would tell people that "No we don't need a Fire Sprinkler System to cover the whole building". I hope you still have that attorney you bragged about having on retainer at the board of alderman meetings when someone would bring up something you did while you worked for the City. First thing you would do is threaten people with your attorney, do you remember, I sure do and I have it on tape! You just might need him or her after all and if you don't, if I where you I would get one!

Jim Doyle, FIRE MARSHAL, you were the one that went along with both of the other two about not needing a FIRE SPRINKLER SYSTEM for the whole building. The strange thing about that is in the LAKE OZARK BUSINESS JOURNAL, APRIL, 2010 under the heading of FIRE SUPPRESSION SPRINKLER CODES SPARKS DISCUSSION (pages 5&29) The interview was about the houses out on Horseshoe Bend and that the Codes being used where 4 years old,(good keeping up with things,Sorry got side tracked) and the new codes would cover new things for homes. Do you remember that interview? The very last paragraph of that article stated "All commercial buildings are required to have a FIRE SPRINKLER SYSTEMS". The state Fire code also said that all government buildings should have a FIRE SPRINKLER SYSTEM. We go to CITY HALL to pay CITY TAXES, BUY BUILDING PERMITS, PAY WATER BILLS, BUY PET TAGS, GO TO COURT, PAY FINES, BUY COPIES OF CITY BUSINESS (covered by the SUNSHINE LAW) I also know that CITY codes can bend and even break State codes and laws but when we are talking about peoples SAFETY and LIVES is it worth it? So who lied? I don't think we will ever know for sure! I do know one thing for sure, the CITY HALL is both a Commercial and government building!

When you call state offices and report these things you get the same answer, They dont care about city business, they say go to your aldermen or city officials.

There are a lot of things barfield and franzeskes did that were illegal but no one cared except Susan Drummond who could see what was going on and had to fight the battle by herself because the other aldermen didn't have the balls to back her. what a shame.... now we are stuck with all of it. Ghost Devil why dont you go to the attorney generals office or at least call them and let them know about these problems and see what they tell you.

Susan tried her best when she was here but now she is gone and will never be back in the local arena. As far as getting the Attorney General involved that well happen as soon as verifiable proof can be gathered in a strong enough case so the State can't turn it down or away. You do all the work and then hand it to them so it makes them look good, but at least it gets the job done!
