VVA Board of Directors Monthly Meeting Call to Order

Tony Gronniger, lot 2281, called the meeting to order, held on the upper level of the clubhouse at 6:30 pm. Board members present were: Troy Lesan, lot 576; Allan Slavin, lot 181; Marvin McNabb, lot 28; Mike Booth, lot 2380; Celeste Armanees, lot 62; Doug Winter, lot 46. Mike Booth led in prayer. Cathy Poindexter led the Pledge of Allegiance.

Approval of Minutes

Troy Lesan moved to approve the minutes of the February Board meeting. Celeste Armanees seconded; motion passed.

COMMITTEE REPORTS: Handbook Committee Celeste Armanees reported there are about a dozen proposed Handbook changes presented later in the meeting, so they’ll make the next printing of the 2022 Handbook. Finance Committee (Note: As suggested by long-time Board Treasurer Troy Lesan, new Board member Doug Winter is VVA’s new Treasurer, with Troy Lesan as Asst. Treasurer.) Treasurer Doug Winter reported that Tony Conforti is interested in serving on the Finance Committee. Tony is a CPA and owns his own payroll business & has been a member for 3 years. Doug Winter made a motion to add Tony Conforti to the Finance Committee. Troy Lesan seconded; motion passed. Doug Winter reported that due to higher demand for tier lots (we’ve sold more tier lots in past 3 months than in the past 3 years combined), the Finance Committee unanimously recommends that the Board increase the sale price of VVA-owned tier lots, S lots, and Yacht Club lots. The purpose of increasing the sale price of VVA-owned lots is to minimize (as much as possible) future annual dues increases to VVA membership. • Tier lots: currently $1,000 would change to $2,000 per lot. The Board of Directors agreed to raise the price of the tier lots to $2,000. • Yacht Club lots: VVA owns approx 12 lots that are no longer needed for the Silt Basin Project, so could be sold. Because these lots are more valuable, the Finance Committee recommends selling Yacht Club lots for $5,000. Doug Winter moved to increase the price of these Yacht Club lots from current $1,000 to new $5,000 sale price. Allan Slavin, seconded; motion passed.

NEW MEETING TIME Board of Director’s Meetings will now be held at 2 p.m. at the clubhouse.

• S lots: VVA owns 2ea S lots (zoned primarily to build Storage hangars). The Finance Committee recommends a “sealed bid process” (similar to that done for Community Area lots) on these two lots—lot #S101 @ minimum sealed bid of $50,000; lot #S131 @ minimum sealed bid of $40,000. The proceeds from these two S lots would be earmarked for beach improvements. The timeframe & sealed bid instructions will be published in the Lake Viking News, on Lake Viking’s official Facebook page, and on website Sealed bids will be accepted only from current VVA members. (This is not an auction, so make your one & only bid your best offer.) Then, only if the minimum bid is not met, will the bidding process be open to the public. Doug Winter made the motion to sell the two S lots. Troy Lesan seconded; motion passed with 5 yes votes, 1 no vote. Managing Director Cathy Poindexter further explained what the funds from selling both S lots would be used for: The beaches currently slope downhill, allowing sand to wash into the water when it rains or waves wash into the beach. The plan is to reconfigure/dig out Beach 1 & Beach 2 flattening the beach, terracing, and adding large landscaping stones. This would reduce the amount of sand lost each year into the lake, which would reduce our re-purchase of sand each year & especially reduce our dredging costs of removing all this washed-out Beach sand we have to dredge out of our lake each year. Strategic Planning Committee – no report Activities Committee Celeste Armanees reported the Wine & Cheese Tasting was a success with ~100 members attending. The Easter Egg Hunt had ~100 kids hunting for 1,200 candy-filled eggs. Upcoming events: Spring Garage Sale: Sat., April 23 @ 8am-2pm (map @ Office) Fishing Tournament: Sat., April 23 @ 7am-1pm Cinco de Mayo: Fri., May 6 @ 6-9pm in Clubhouse The Committee has also used their fund to purchase $600 of black tablecloths to rent for weddings & large events at Clubhouse. The Committee is also considering purchase of matching chair covers to rent out; however this would require VVA to purchase stackable poly chairs to replace the Clubhouse’s current folding metal chairs, so the cost/ benefit of this is still being considered. Building Committee Allan Slavin reported the Committee had 20 Building Permits--1 being a house. Fire Department Tony Gronniger reported the Fire Department meets monthly. They recently purchased an AED with its pads and accessories for the Safety boat. Also purchased medical bags, and is currently assessing their fleet of trucks due to age. Tony would

April 10, 2022 like the Office to check into the rental of portable oxygen tanks. Mark Closterman reported that he was asked about the siren placement around the lake. Mark said he was told by a member that they could not hear the siren when it was set off last week. Tony said the issue of not being heard could be due to high wind speed that night causing a dead spot. Mike Booth explained the sirens are not meant to be heard indoors. These outdoor sirens are for alerting people who are outside. Vs. if people are inside, weather alerts should be via other methods such as TV, weather radio or cellphone alert. Campground Committee Mike Booth reported the Campgrounds are now open. Mary Hibler added that she has one spot open in Campground 1 with a Wait List of 7. She reported Campground 2 is full with no Wait List. Lake Committee Troy Lesan reported the Lake Committee met Wed., April 6th with 5 members present. Troy reported that future meetings will be held the second Wednesday of each month at 2 pm. Troy said the Lake Committee will focus on roadside inspections of the lake this month vs. waterside inspections in May. On a separate note, Troy reported he was contacted by Jeff Hower who’d like do his annual Anvil Shoot on the 4th of July this year. Infraction Committee Mike Booth reported the first Infraction Committee meeting will be April 30th at 9:30 am. Dredge Committee Shawn Hepinstall did a slide presentation illustrating the peninsula at the South End of lake in front of lots #299, 300, 301, 302, and 303 that the Dredge Committee has been discussing at length. Shawn reported that Cathy (Managing Director) and Billy (Maintenance Supervisor) had recently been contacted by the owner of lot 300, Eddy Watkins. Eddy has been inquiring if he can remove the peninsula back to his lot, or remove just a section in the middle of the peninsula (a “pass-thru”) in front of his lot. Eddy first said he would pay for the cost of removal, as he had a price quote for $40,000 to do so. Eddy then approached Cathy about VVA sharing the cost of the peninsula removal by contributing $18,000. Cathy told Eddy that the Dredge Committee and VVA would not be interested in cost-sharing. The property survey pins of Eddy’s lot & neighboring lots are ALL in the peninsula, but do not run all the way through. Shawn said the Dredge Committee has been on-site & measured the lot using the map & comparing it to the survey. Shawn reported that the Dredge Committee’s recommendation is not to remove the peninsula, nor allow a hole to be cut in it, because the silt from the feeder creek nearby deposits silt all along the south Continued on page 3

New Water Plant Construction to Begin In addition to work being done by staff, major construction is commencing on the new PWSD #3 Water Plant with ground breaking on Thursday, April 14. Anyone needing to stop by the water office should be aware of heavy equipment and dump trucks operating in the area over the next few weeks, so please show extreme caution. In fact the Water Dept. will probably place a mail and payment drop-box at the plant entrance at Sunfish and Waterworks so folks don’t have to go near the work area. Pictures show the work equipment belonging to Dave Ross Construction, Raytown Missouri, who will be building the new plant. The big water pipes pictured are the first of many shipments of material to be received.

Humble beginnings perhaps, but we are calling this Day 1 (4-14-22) of new Water Plant construction

side of this peninsula. So removing the peninsula would allow the silt to instead deposit under the docks of lot owners #299 – 303. Doug Winter made a motion to draft a letter from the Dredge Committee & Board of Directors stating that the removal of the peninsula will not be allowed. Celeste Armanees seconded; motion passed. Shawn reported that the Dredge Committee has also been contacted by members wanting to “clean out” the feeder creeks in front of their lots to widen them out—i.e. widen their water access from a mere sliver to more than that. Shawn said soil erosion is the largest cause of silt entering the lake. Shawn said the Dredge Committee will need help from the Board & from Safety to enforce the streambank stabilization rules in the Handbook. Shawn said the feeder creeks are not wide enough nor deep enough for the dredge to get back in there, so it will silt back in without stabilization (rocked to prevent erosion into lake).

Managing Director Report

Road tubes: Cathy Poindexter reported a new road tube has been installed at Community Area 18. While working in that area, Maintenance found another tube on the north side of Leeward that needs replaced in the near future. She reported the tubes for replacement at Deer Run have been ordered. Pool: Cathy reported the pool has been repaired & will be painted next week. Pool attendants have been hired, new chairs and chemicals have been ordered. New employee in Office: Cathy introduced Debbie Thomas, hired to work 2 days/week in the Office. Debbie is recently retired from a career in Hospital Admin/Billing Depts.

ported she is looking over the Association’s insurance policy, as the premium is $72,000 per year. She is making sure that everything owned is insured, and if some piece of equipment is on the insured list that we no longer own, it will be removed. Cathy also said the comp & collision deductibles were $250 & $500 but raised them to $1,000 to avoid having to submit a claim that would then raise our insurance rates even beyond the repair expense we’d incur. Cathy reported she has tasked Billy (Maintenance Supervisor) to assess the Maintenance vehicle fleet, as the upkeep/insurance expense for the Maintenance fleet of vehicles is quite large. Even our best trucks have cab corners, floor pans, brakes lines and beds that are rusted out. Cathy said she and Billy are looking at keeping the most mechanically sound trucks & selling the rest (“shrink the fleet”). Improvement sites around lake: Cathy reported she has been out seeing areas of the lake to identify improvement needs. Some of the shelters at Beaches and Community Areas are rotten and need replaced. The bathrooms at Beaches and Campgrounds need repaired or replaced. Cathy reported that new playground equipment is coming for Beach 2. Repairs are going to be made at Beach 2 in an effort to stop the drainage issue on the east side of the beach. Cathy said she and Shad meet every Wednesday morning to answer questions & strategize solutions. Cathy said Shad has trimmed trees on Lake Viking Terrace behind Campground 2 & Mooney. Shad has cleaned out the weir at Campground 2, and the weir on north side of the road at Pilot & Pirate.


Troy Lesan moved to approve the Financial Reports. Marvin McNabb seconded; motion passed.

Guest Time

Guest RE: fishing regulations per state of MO: Jaycob O’Hara, Daviess County Conservation Agent, wanted to make the Board of Directors and membership aware that he will be making a presence at the lake this summer. He will be checking fishing licenses & watching for compliance of other Department of Conservation laws. O’Hara reported that licenses, permits and rules can be found at Their website includes rules such as: All persons (age 16-64) fishing must have a Fishing Permit & D.L. on their person to prove you’re a resident of Missouri to be fishing in MO waters. If your driver’s license is out-of-state (not Missouri), you must purchase a NonResident Fishing Permit. Both may be purchased at LV Marina, or at their www. website. Continued on page 6

Marvin McNabb reported that he has a computer set up for new employee Debbie in the Office. Marvin said he has an issue with cameras at the gates, so he has Mid-States and North MO Satellite assisting. The cable at Beach 2 for cameras has been buried. Updating account sign-off: Allan Slavin made a motion to remove Mark Leggett from the BTC bank account and replace w/ new BOD member Doug Winter. Remaining on the account are BOD members Tony Gronniger, Troy Lesan, Marvin McNabb, Celeste Armanees, Mike Booth and Allan Slavin. Marvin McNabb seconded; motion passed. Handbook proposed changes: As Board contact for the Handbook Committee, Celeste Armanees presented the following: Pg. 23 under Fences paragraph: DELETE: “Opaque fencing of property boundary lines is not permitted. Opaque fencing for pet enclosures may be permitted depending on size & location, at the discretion of the Building Committee.” REPLACE WITH: “No solid material fence (wood, vinyl, plastic, etc.) is allowed on any member’s lot. Maximum height of any fence is five (5) feet. Invisible pet fencing is allowed.” (Rest of paragraph remains as is.) Reason: Word “opaque” is vague, but still limits fencing so won’t block the scenic view of our lake community. Celeste Armanees moved for proposed change on page 23. Doug Winter seconded; motion passed. Continued on page 10

Meet the Lunch Ladies By Troy Lesan The Lunch Ladies are a new edition of a group that has been around Lake Viking for a long time. Previously, during the early days of the lake’s existence, the group was established as a chapter of the Listen & Learn Extension Club for women. Later the group evolved into the Lake Viking Homemakers Club which met monthly for potluck luncheons at the Clubhouse and often featured a speaker. In 2020, when COVID put a screeching halt to social gatherings, the Homemakers went the way of many other groups and postponed meetings. Finally, the Lunch Ladies emerged. The group meets monthly at different residences and features pot-luck although guests are not required to bring dishes if they don’t want to. The monthly hostesses provide the main dish. Thanks to Mary Aschbrenner for reviving this group. It’s a way to meet other folks on the lake and new members are always showing up. These get-togethers are on the third Thursday of each month at noon. Meeting announcements appear on Lake Viking Group Facebook. Call Mary Aschbrenner at 660-605-1345 for more details.

Her father went to heaven when she was 6 years old. Marie remarried and had 4 more children. Jackie went to grade school and spent her younger years in Wingate, Missouri.

After high school she moved to Kansas City where she worked at Winstead’s on the plaza. Jackie is survived by her children, Vonna E. Occhipinto, Maria S. (Occhipinto) & Mike Gaines, L. Noelle (Occhipinto) & Tad Heater, Anthony (Kelly) Occhipinto, Fred Occhipinto & Melissa; grandchildren, Jeffery, Leslie, Amber, Charles, Michael, Jennie, Brandon, Madison, Megan, Kalyn, Alexandra, Anthony, Hannah, Courtney, Adam and Kayla, twenty-six great grandchildren; one greatgreat grandson, Ezra; her brother, Richard (Chris) Tracy; sister-in-law, Anita Schaal; her sister, Marie (Tracy) Stice; and her favorite brother-in-law, Tom Stice; as well as many nieces, nephews, and cousins.

her family and seeing them was always a priority for her. Every year she would plan a 2 week vacation. We would drive to Arizona, Las Vegas or Los Angeles. She enjoyed driving and showing her children the scenery. She was able to go see Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee with her sister and favorite brother-in-law. After marrying, Jackie ran a home childcare so that she could be at home every day when her kids came home from school. She was always highly recommended by all the grade schools in our area. She still to this day has people that remember her as their babysitter. Jackie would later go out to the workforce where she worked at Bob’s I.G.A. Cook’s Paint and US Gypsum. Her time at US Gypsum were some of her favorite, where she formed lasting friendships. She retired from there in 2002. After retiring Jackie was able to realize her dream of building a home and living lake front on Lake Viking. She found many friends that were family to her. The friendships that she built through her years at the lake were her saving grace as she aged. The people that would help our mother while she lived there especially through covid. Keeping her safe, making sure that she never needed for anything from mowing her lawn to bringing her meals, she especially enjoyed Troy’s Catfish. To checking every time they went to town to see if she would need anything. To driving her to the city for doctor’s appointments. She would always say “I am not alone, I have so many that take care of me” when we would try to get her to move back to the city. December of 2021 her children made the decision to bring her back to the city where she was living in an assisted living community. This did not work out for her and her sister and brother-in-law selflessly gave up their retirement dream of travel to come home to take care of her. She lived with them the final 8 weeks of life. We are forever grateful for their sacrifice for our Mother and the love that they bestowed on her and her children. We would also like to thank Kansas City Hospice and Palliative Care for their dedication and care for our Mother.

Lake Viking 2022 Easter Egg Hunt Leave it to the Activities Committee to come up with another seasonal extravaganza. This time, it was the Annual Lake Viking Easter Egg Hunt held behind the clubhouse. Picture if you will, over a hundred excited kids (four different age groups) running around looking for the candy and Easter Eggs. Not that they were in short supply. Rumor has it that there were over 1200 Easter Eggs donated for the hunt. The event was so big that the Easter Bunny even made a special appearance (see pictures). Activities Committee Chair Mary Hibler would like to thank everyone who made donations and helped to make this a successful event.
