Ameren Missouri says it plans to file a proposal early next year to resolve the controversy about the status of some homes and other buildings at the Lake of the Ozarks.

The lake is formed by a dam operated by Ameren. Some residents fear that structures built on land belonging to Ameren's hydroelectric project may have to be removed in light of a July decision by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

Last week, the commission directed Ameren to submit a new boundary plan by June of next year.

Ameren said Friday it would submit a plan during the first quarter of 2012. Utility officials say they understand property owners are concerned and therefore wanted to speed the process.
