Problem With VSFTPD And CHMOD

Hello forum members, I have a problem with vsftpd.
I want all files that I upload via ftp will have chmod 770, meaning all files would have the execute flag.
Now I know there is an option in the vsftpd.conf which called “local_umask”, and I have set it up to be - local_umask=0007 , buy unfortunately it is still doesn’t work.
Does anyone know the answer to my problem?

umask doesn't handle executable bits for ordinary files (only for directories).
it can only provide r and for ordinary files.
