Mayor's Moment: A message from Branson Mayor Edd Akers

Mayor Moment

Dear Branson Community,

A bit of history for Constitution Week. This observance was enacted by President/General Dwight D. Eisenhower. I believe it provides an opportunity to dedicate some study time on the Constitution and other historical events that brought us together as a country. One Nation under God.

While they are not always "pretty" against the views of our spectacular natural scenery, construction cranes and equipment are a great sign of progress and a growing economy. Our Planning and Development Department is following these new businesses who are all scheduled to complete construction this year:

  • Aldi (Branson Hills, next to McDonalds)
  • Aquarium at the Boardwalk (on W. 76 Country Blvd, next to Grand Village Shops)
  • Branson Wash Co. (new car wash on Hwy 248, next to Culver’s)
  • Country Mart Pharmacy (on Hwy 248, in existing building but with new drive-thru)
  • Hobby Lobby (on Hwy 248)
  • Preserve Self Storage (on Green Mtn Drive, in front of Preserve Apartments)
  • Robbins Insurance Group new building (on Hwy 248, next to Nature’s Wonders)
  • Table Rock Coffee Roasters (on W. 76 Country Blvd, in front of Skate World)
  • The Tikki Bar (at the Branson Landing, near Jet Boat dock).

Our best to all of you and we look forward to your opening Ceremonies.

With our active and progressive Branson Lakes/Area Chamber of Commerce and CVB we join in celebrating Silliman Realty & Associates on the official opening and ribbon cutting at their new location

Our best to you and to all of our local businesses and organizations making changes this year.

Your attention, please. If you have large unwanted items that are not typically picked up by your private trash service, feel free to drop them off this weekend at the Cooper Creek Waste Water Treatment Plant during our City Wide Fall Cleanup. For details and more information, you can read all about it on the city’s website.

I hope you are looking forward to the 47th Autumn Daze Arts, Crafts and Music Festival this weekend. I understand this year we have 80 vendors, lots of live entertainment, and great food as always.

If you haven’t done so already, please make sure to fill out your 2020 Census. This is extremely important for our community. You can respond online at, by phone at 844-330-2020, or by filling out the packet you received in the mail.

Please, as called, continue to pray for our city, stay positive, and be thankful for living in the best city in America and my hometown.

Thank you for letting me serve you,

Mayor Edd Akers
