CAMDEN COUNTY – The results are in from last week’s General Municipal election and Osage Beach voters have decided to fire Mayor John Olivarri and hire Michael Harmison.

Since the city sits in Camden and Miller Counties, the combined results from both sent Olivarri packing.

Olivarri took in 264 votes in Camden and 17 in Miller for a total of 281.
