Flint Hibler moved to add them to the committee. Mike Krehbiel seconded; motion carried. Mary also commented on the 4th of July Boat Parade. The Activities Committee did not have it this year and several people have asked that they have it next year. Mary is going to ask the Yacht Club if they would like to plan future boat parades. Building Committee: The Building Committee approved 10 permits at their last meeting. Fire Department: Tony Gronniger reported the training room for the Fire Department is near completion. There will be a First Responder Class sometime in October if anyone is interested. Mike Booth reported on the Red Cross smoke alarm program.

VVA Board Meeting

(continued from page 1)

wanting them will be getting a call soon. Tony requested a motion from the Board to purchase a fire truck that was mentioned in the Financial Report. Mike Booth moved to purchase the 1985 pumper from Holt Community Fire Protection District for $10,000. Troy Lesan seconded; motion carried. Campground: Mary Hibler said the electrical upgrades seem to be working well. Mary approached the Board about getting an expansion done in the campground. She stated there is a waiting list and she could fill any and all new spaces. Lake Committee: The Lake Committee has completed their last inspection for the year and all letters have been sent. This Committee was tasked to look into the growing number of wake boats on Lake Viking. Shawn Polowniak was kind enough to take the Lake Committee and Board President Phil Stockard on his wake boat. It is Shawn’s opinion that wake boats do no more damage than any other boat on the lake and the wake is usually on the inside or left side of the boat. Mike asked for some insight as to rules that could be made to address the wake boats. Shawn responded to Mike that wake boats really should not be in coves, but more on the main channel and that they do their wake boarding early in the day when the water is more calm. Troy Knight offered to work with the committee in establishing some rule for wake boats. Troy Lesan brought up the recommendation from last month to move the Dredge Committee to being a part of the Lake Committee. Troy also made a motion to change some verbiage in the Lot Maintenance rule. The revised rule is as follows: Lot Maintenance: No unlicensed vehicles (a motor vehicle approved for highway use), building or outbuilding needing repairs; boats without current membership sticker; unsightly condition of boats, covers, and trailers; unsafe or unsightly boat docks, unsightly lots, brush, weeds, trash or general rubbish shall be allowed. Violations must be corrected within 30 days of written notice. Failure to do so will result in an Infraction Violation in addition to costs incurred by the Association in correcting the conditions including the removal of deteriorated structures. Mike Krehbiel seconded; motion carried. Cemetery: No Report Infraction Committee: Roger Lankford reported on the last two infraction meetings. July meeting had 22 tickets reviewed and August had 46. The two meetings combined, the majority of infractions were for trash being put out without it being in a sealed container. There were 15 water tickets, five for burn ban and one for bypassing the ramp gate at the Marina, which is a very serious offense. Other tickets consisted of dogs roaming and littering. One member of the Infraction Committee has resigned (Tom Archibald) and two others have volunteered. James Funk moved to add Gary Covey to the committee. Flint Hibler seconded; motion carried. James Funk also moved to add Troy Knight to this committee. Troy Lesan seconded; motion carried. Dredge Committee: Shawn Hepinstall reported the dredge is up and running. It is working in the Pilot Cove area right now and probably will be until at least Labor Day. Then we will move to three tubes cove. At the south end we have dozers working and will be dipping out the big structure with the long reach in the near future. We would like to work on the “danger area” toward the south end, but we know there is a concrete foundation there and we are not sure how much is silted and how much is just low water levels. Lake Manager Report 1. Dredge: Shad Mort reiterated about the dredge working in the Pilot Cove area. He commented that someone from IMS will be here on Tuesday for training of our new dredge operator. We are going to have to work on the drive motor next week so will be down for a short time. 2. Burn Ban: Shad stressed to the members that until we get ample, measurable rainfall the burn ban will stay in effect. We are under a county-wide burn ban now. 3. Lake Levels / Boating Safety: Shad encouraged members to heed on the side of caution when on the lake. There is the danger area that is extremely lower than normal. Shad also pointed out a rock shelf is showing in front of the Beach 3 dock and to be very careful in these areas. 4. Road work: We have put down 10 loads of patching material so far and will be starting the chip and seal process in September. 5. Third mowing: We are just starting the second mowing for the year and with the drought Shad does not think he will do a third mowing. Financials: Mike Krehbiel moved to approve the financial reports. Flint Hibler seconded; motion carried. Guest Time: There was no guest time. Board Action 1. Association Lot S155 for sale Susan Zalenski moved to hold the sale through a silent auction that will be open to the members and the public through the Association Office. The starting bid will be $5,000 and all bids must be in $100 increments. Troy Lesan seconded the motion. Motion passed. James Funk discussed the time table for having this auction. James Funk moved to run the auction from September 1, 2018, with the closing bid at 4 p.m. on October 1, 2018. Troy Lesan seconded. Motion passed. 2. Trash Rule changes Phil Stockard moved to accept the proposed trash disposal changes. James Funk seconded the motion. Phil opened the discussion and read the proposed trash disposal changes in its entirety as follows: TRASH DISPOSAL (Replaces Refuse Disposal Pg. 39) Each lot with a house or commercial building must pay for trash service to the trash removal company providing the service approved by the Association. Full time residents will pay for 12 months of trash service and weekend or part-time residents will pay for six months of trash service (April 1 through September 30). Billing and collection of the fees for trash service will be handled by the company providing the service. Signs are posted at each dumpster site stating who may use them. All trash put out the day prior to scheduled pick-up date must be placed in a container with a sealable lid securely closed. The Office will maintain a current listing from the Trash Service Provider to verify member contracted service if required. Compliance reviews will be conducted and members failing to maintain service will receive an Infraction Violation. Unimproved lot owners have the option to remove their trash with them upon leaving, or purchase a card at the Association office for $25 for the Membership Year allowing them to dump their trash in an approved Association dumpster.

Members with a campground site can utilize the campground dumpster. Members utilizing dumpsters without the purchase of an Association card will be issued an Infraction Violation. Maintenance yard dumpsters are the only approved dumpsters for members with contracted service or unimproved lot owners who purchase a trash stamp. Dumpster Use: 1. Dumpsters located at Community Areas, Beaches, Clubhouse, Campgrounds and the Office will be utilized for trash generated from those locations only. Placing any trash not originating from use of those areas in those dumpsters is prohibited and will result in an Infraction Violation. 2. Members who contract trash service and have a need to utilize dumpsters for household waste may use dumpsters located in the maintenance yard on a limited basis. Members must have either a stamped membership card or proof of contracted trash service with them during use. (Note: If the member is renewing annual membership in person, the member may request or provide trash service verification at that time. Members who desire approval and are renewing membership by mail may request a trash stamp on their membership card with proof of current trash service.) 3. Use of dumpsters by members will be monitored for excessive use as determined by the Board. Excessive use may result in the suspension or prohibition of dumpster use by the member. 4. The member MUST notify the on-duty Safety Officer prior to utilizing the maintenance area dumpsters and have their current membership card (with the trash stamp) or proof of contracted service on their person at the time they utilize the dumpsters. Members must provide such to any Association Employee upon request. Use of the maintenance yard by members is allowed between 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. 5. Guests who utilize a member’s property where the member is not present are prohibited from utilizing dumpsters unless the member has made prior arrangements with the Office. 6. Only registered Campground members may utilize dumpsters located in the campgrounds. Bulky items or brush from the campground must be taken to the maintenance yard for disposal. 7. Bulky Items may be disposed of only in dumpsters located in the Maintenance Yard and must be sorted to the appropriate dumpster, i.e. Metal to Metal bin. Only Members who have contracted trash service, Unimproved Lot Owners who have purchased a trash stamp or Campground Members may dispose of bulky items. Members must notify the on-duty Safety Officer and provide their lot number prior to utilizing the maintenance yard and disposing of bulky items. 8. Members performing “do it yourself” repairs to their Lake Viking property where no permit is required or who have a permit where no container is required may utilize the maintenance yard dumpster. Members must notify the on-duty Safety Officer as above. 9. Contractors are prohibited from using Association dumpsters for contracted job site waste. No waste from outside Lake Viking is permitted. 10. Permanent businesses located at the lake are prohibited from using Association dumpsters. 11. Only brush and untreated lumber may be disposed of in the burn area which is available to all members. Members placing other items in the burn area without approval of the office are subject to an infraction violation. 12. Minimum fine for violation of trash rules is $250 except for failing to produce proof of trash service or approved use card/stamp which will be determined by the Infraction Committee. (8-2018) Phil explained the reasoning behind moving everything to the maintenance area is because the last couple of years the dumpsters at Beach 2 and the campgrounds are overflowing. The best way to police this situation is to reduce the number of locations you can dump in. Our hope is to cut down on the number of dumpsters at Beach 2 and other areas. If people who are paying for trash service use the dumpsters a few times a year it is not a big deal, but if you are using the dumpsters every week, it is a big deal, because everyone pays for it. Shad Mort explained the overage, after the allowed 4 tons per dumpster, we pay an extra $46 per ton. Phil quoted the trash bill from July was $1,393.24. There were many comments from the members present, which included bumping the budget, not having to call Safety to use the maintenance yard, and not having to set containers out by the road. Some members do not like the sight of trash cans sitting on the road. Others do not want to have to go from the west side of the lake to the maintenance yard. Other comments included, taking your neighbors’ trash cans in for them if you don’t want to see them out all week. Susan Zalenski says we have to move forward with this issue somehow, so this is a starting point. Shad Mort asked the members if they want to see MORE dumpsters sitting around. One property owner commented raising assessments by $5 to cover the overage. Shad explained that we do have extra dumpsters on holiday weekends and they all get full. Someone asked if we raised the budget this year and Shad responded this trash was not this bad, until this year. Troy Lesan commented that the dumpsters at Beach 2 are being totally abused and we have got to send a message. They are being loaded with not just residential trash, but contractors are taking building materials to these dumpsters. After a lengthy discussion, the motion had been made and seconded. Phil Stockard called for the vote and the motion passed. Business Future Campground Review Group: Mike Booth reported the group had their first meeting on Saturday. They have compiled a list of items they will need from the office to do their study. Their next meeting will be Aug. 25, 2018 at 9 a.m. at the Firehouse. Adjourn: Flint Hibler moved to adjourn into Executive Session at 8:55 p.m. James Funk seconded; motion carried. Attendance: Len Zalenski, lot 364; Tony Gronniger, lot 2281; Shawn & Paula Hepinstall, lot 385; Ron & Kim Spidle, lot 341; Jim & Ramona Miller, lot 455; Mark & Stephanie Closterman, lot 1900; Janet & Jeff Yuratovich, lot 563/564; Mac & Nadja McCubbin, lot 222; Don & Carolyn Leeper, lot 22; Resa Wiltse, lot 494; Joe & Nancy Serrone, lot 583; Rex & Phyllis Williams, lot 436; Cindy Wolfe, lot 580; Eric & Jody Odette, lot 220; Mary Hibler, lot 183; Sherry Krehbiel, lot 559; Dennis Schlaiss, lot 1080; Frank Armanees, lot 62; Jeff Sprague, lot 506; Troy Knight, [Continued on next page]

Are you responsible with your boat wake?

M

issouri waterways have become increasingly busy over the past few decades. Along with the increased boat traffic, the size of motorboats continues to grow, particularly on our larger lakes. Where there are boats, there are boat wakes. Please join the Missouri State Highway Patrol in promoting wake courtesy to minimize the danger to others using our waterways, damage to docks, and erosion to our shorelines. Operating a motorboat at “plowing” speed is necessary at times, but should not be the norm. Please make note of these reminders so you are part of the solution and not part of the problem: Operate your boat at idle speed, or when you are safely able to do so, operate on plane. Do not continuously plow unless absolutely necessary. Boats that cause excessive wakes should always operate in the middle of the lake to allow their boat wake time and distance to lose energy. Plowing within cove locations is discouraged, unless safety or water sport activities require you to do so. Water sport activities requiring excessive boat wakes should be reserved for areas of our lakes where the danger to boaters, damage to docks, or significant shoreline erosion is limited. Cruiser and houseboat owners and operators are a significant and important part of our boating communities, but these boat owners and operators require heightened awareness of the wake they are causing. Remember to be courteous. If you were in a small boat attempting to navigate your boat wake, or you owned a dock that has to survive your boat wake, would you be operating in the same manner? Treat other boaters and property owners as you would want to be treated. Causing harm to another person or their property with an excessive boat wake may subject you to enforcement action or civil liability. The great state of Missouri has many beautiful waterways, all of which allow for a wide variety of boating activities. Responsible and courteous boaters help make our waterways safe and enjoyable for everyone’s use. The above is reprinted, with permission, from the Missouri State Highway Patrol, Water Patrol Division website. As you can see, the state of Missouri, like Lake Viking, is fighting to prevent damage to docks and shorelines from excessive boat wakes. Although not all applies to LV (houseboats?), courtesy and awareness of your boat wake will help the Association avoid making unnecessary and restrictive boating rules. Help us protect our members’ docks and shorelines. Lake Viking Board of Directors Lake Viking Safety Department SHP-272 3/2016

‘Now & Then’ a big hit at Patio Party

By Troy Lesan You’ve all heard the old expression “when it rains it pours,” right? While aphorisms about rain do not seem relevant in this season of drought, the proverb can still ring true in real life day-to-day situations. In fact, Association Member Don Porter must have felt that way on a recent Sunday morning, when he had to rush his wife, Diane, to the hospital because she was suffering stroke-like symptoms. And, oh yes, there was this problem with low water pressure and finally no water pressure. And as Don left for the hospital, he noticed a mini Old Faithful-like geyser spurting from the ground not far from his water meter. Yep, when it rains, it pours. He definitely had a broken water line, and being Sunday, it would be next to impossible to get it fixed right away. Well, Don and Diane wouldn’t be singing with the Lake Viking Church Choir on that particular Sunday, and when word of their plight reached Pastor Robert Nelson, he came up with an immediate plan. He had already been involved in the volunteer effort to hand out bottled water at Altamont as a result of the water troubles at PWSD #1. By this time, he was getting to be an experienced hand in the water emergency business, so he announced in church that he needed a group of men to help with the broken water line. It couldn’t be nearly as bad a problem as an entire water district going down. After all, even if Roger Barker had shut off the water, there had been a geyser and the wet spot would identify where the break was while also softening the otherwise sun-baked and drought hardened ground for digging. So, after church, a sizable group of men (plus Peggy Lankford who proved to be as good a digger, or better, than many of the men) showed up on the Porter property. Also on hand were several ladies with a mini refreshment stand of lemonade, sandwiches, etc. It was hot that day with an eventual high of 99, but there was a wonderful breeze blowing off the lake. The leak was quickly identified, and the next challenge of replacing the T-fitting for an above ground hydrant was made easier when one of the guys showed up with a big wooden box full of fittings of all sizes. Remarkably, the defective old rust-covered fitting was broken loose so it could be replaced. A few hours, after the operation had commenced, we turned the water shut-off back on . . . and no more geyser! Later, Diane was given a clean of health and when the Porters returned home, voila, they had running water. I don’t know the exact sequence of events that occurred when Don and Diane got home but I have a feeling, at some point in time, they turned a faucet on, listened to the reassuring sound of running water and thanked the Lord for the way that the Sunday had turned out after such a poor start. How easy it is to sometimes take the small things for granted.

New Trash Rules TRASH DISPOSAL (Replaces Refuse Disposal Pg. 39) Each lot with a house or commercial building must pay for trash service to the trash removal company providing the service approved by the Association. Full time residents will pay for 12 months of trash service and weekend or part-time residents will pay for 6 months of trash service (April 1 through September 30). Billing and collection of the fees for trash service will be handled by the company providing the service. Signs are posted at each dumpster site stating who may use them. All trash put out the day prior to scheduled pick-up date must be placed in a container with a sealable lid securely closed. The Office will maintain a current listing from the Trash Service Provider to verify member contracted service if required. Compliance reviews will be conducted and members failing to maintain service will receive an Infraction Violation. Unimproved lot owners have the option to remove their trash with them upon leaving, or purchase a card at the Association office for $25.00 for the Membership Year allowing them to dump their trash in an approved Association dumpster. Members with a campground site can utilize the campground dumpster. Members utilizing dumpsters without the purchase of an Association card will be issued an Infraction Violation. Maintenance yard dumpsters are the only approved dumpsters for members with contracted service or unimproved lot owners who purchase a trash stamp. Dumpster Use: 1. Dumpsters located at Community Areas, Beaches, Clubhouse, Campgrounds and the Office will be utilized for trash generated from those locations only. Placing any trash not originating from use of those areas in those dumpsters is prohibited and will result in an Infraction Violation. 2. Members who contract trash service and have a need to utilize dumpsters for household waste may use dumpsters located in the maintenance yard on a limited basis. Members must have either a stamped membership card or proof of contracted trash service with them during use. (Note: If the member is renewing annual membership in person, the member may request or provide trash service verification at that time. Members who desire approval and are renewing membership by mail may request a trash stamp on their membership card with proof of current trash service.) 3. Use of dumpsters by members will be monitored for excessive use as determined by the Board. Excessive use may result in the suspension or prohibition of dumpster use by the member. 4.

Lake Viking Marine Cardboard Boat Race 2018 By Troy Lesan lt was a full day of events: a 5K run, a bicycle race around the lake, country music singer Ted Stockton, and, of course, the highly anticipated main event – Lake Viking Marine Annual Cardboard Boat Race. Over the years, this event has become a Lake Viking Classic but not without a tremendous amount of work by Randy Tague and his staff as well as the incomparable ingenuity and originality displayed by the cardboard boat builders. The cardboard boat races featured 4 heats: Pee Wee, Junior, adults, and the final championship pitting the winners of the previous heats. The exciting 12 and under heat was won by Casey Berry in Shark Bait. The 13- 17 heat was won by Weston Edwards and Maggie Morris in the Great White Shark, and the Adult Heat was won by Anthony Dirks and Family in Melon Cruiser. Finally, in the Championship Heat, The Great White Shark won handily for the coveted trophy. Additional prizes went to the Hepinstall family with Minions for the Spirit Award. The Lake Viking Marine Cardboard Boat races are always good for plenty of laughs – unfortunately often at the expense of the contestants. There’s an art to making a cardboard boat that will stand up under the rigors of racing through the water while bearing a load of passengers. Sinkings are common; often in the early stages of the races. This year, however, the Twist family in Senor Two made it all the way to the finish line as the rear of their boat was definitely sinking. Their performance won the “Titanic Award.” In the preliminary morning events, Jeff Miller won the Men’s Bicycle while Max Krueger won the Men’s 5K. Would you believe? Tara Krueger won both the Women’s 5K and Women’s Bicycle. It looks like there are definitely some

athletes in the Krueger Family, which brings up another topic. To me, one of the most rewarding aspects of the cardboard boat race is to witness the family involvement. The Hepinstall family has had an entry in this great event every year, while the champion, the Great White Shark was aptly named because the rowers, cousins Weston Edwards and Maggie Morris, are grandchildren of Ed and Janet White. Meanwhile the Kruegers dominated the running and bicycle events while their younger brothers had an entry in the Pee Wee division of the boat race. (See the picture titled “perseverance”). As I recall, the Whites were winners in the Lake Viking Fourth of July Boat Parade a few years ago, while both families, the Whites and Kruegers , were also active in the spectacular “Water Sports” event from last year’s memorable Fiftieth Anniversary Celebration. A lot of great family memories being made at Lake Viking! The final positive take from this event was the $1,775 raised for the Wounded Warrior Project. What a great day this was – all the way around. Congratulations to the staff of Lake Viking Marine and all of the event’s participants for a job well done. These races are the kind of events that produce an almost endless supply of great pictures. Shown here are some favorites.

New Trash Rule – Some Q & A In an effort to gain control of skyrocketing trash disposal costs by the Association, the Board of Directors has passed a new set of rules regarding disposal of trash and dumpster use around the lake. The new rule was adopted at the board meeting on Aug. 12 and becomes effective Aug. 22, 2018. Key points in the new rule are the designation of the Maintenance Yard dumpsters as “approved” dumpsters for members to utilize, the enforcement of improper dumpster use and the cooperation of members in reducing costs thus saving the membership money. Directing trash to the Maintenance Yard dumpsters automatically enhances enforcement efforts of improper use at other dumpster sites (beaches, clubhouse, office and campground) as dumpsters at those locations are provided for trash originating from those locations only. The purpose of this article is to answer as many questions as possible. Q. Why is the Maintenance Yard being designated as the only location for trash disposal? A. Currently the Association has several locations where dumpsters are located and enforcement of those locations is problematic. While signs have been posted at each of these locations identifying what can be placed in the dumpsters, they have largely been ignored. These signs and conflicting rules in the handbook have made enforcement difficult. Suggestions have been made to station people at those locations to monitor incoming trash, however the costs for such would be expensive and volunteers for such an undertaking are not a reliable source. Those dumpsters are only for the use of members/guests utilizing that area, such as a picnic at Beach 2, etc. By mandating the dumpsters in the maintenance yard for other trash, two things are achieved. First, anyone dumping trash not originating at the dumpster site (Beaches, Community Areas etc.) are automatically in violation of the trash rule. Therefore those captured on camera, spotted by Safety or reported by other members can be held accountable. Second, the Association will be able to better monitor use of dumpsters and by whom. Part of the issue has been the “from time to time” allowance for members with contracted trash service in the previous rule. Often, this has led to weekly dumping of household trash resulting in weight overages and additional fees to the association. Q. I have contracted trash service, how does this new rule affect me? A. For members with contracted trash service (half year or full year) there is no change to your home pickup and only a slight change in the manner you put out your trash. Members with contracted service may still put trash out the day prior to pickup; however, it must be in a closed – sealable container and the lid must be closed completely. Members with trash service may still put trash out in plastic bags the day of pick-up. Q. Can I use the dumpsters if I have an undeveloped lot? A. Yes, if you have purchased a trash stamp. Nothing has changed other than the mandate that the Maintenance Yard dumpsters are approved for use. If you own an undeveloped lot and wish to use Association dumpsters to dispose of your trash, you must respond to the Office and obtain a “trash” stamp on your membership card. The cost is $25 for the Association year (May through April). If you have an undeveloped lot and choose to take your trash with you out of the lake when you leave, you are still free to do so. There is no requirement for undeveloped lot owners to obtain the trash stamp, unless they plan on using Association dumpsters. Q. I have an undeveloped lot and a camper in the Campground. Do I have to get the trash stamp? A. No. If you have an undeveloped lot and a camp space, you already have the availability of campground dumpsters. Campers, however, are reminded that bulky items such as grills and brush must be taken to the appropriate area of the maintenance yard. Only campground members may use the campground dumpsters.

Q. What must I have with me to use the dumpsters? A. To use the association dumpsters in the maintenance yard, you must have in your possession at the time of use either a current Membership card with the stamp or documentation of current contracted trash service. Any employee of the Association can request such proof at any time and failure to provide it can result in an infraction violation. Q. Why do I have to call the on-duty Safety Officer to tell them that I am going to use the dumpsters in the maintenance yard? Do I have to wait for them to meet me? A. The purpose in notifying the on-duty Safety Officer that you are heading to the maintenance yard to use the dumpsters is for accountability and to assist in enforcement purposes. The Safety Officer will ask your lot number and what you intend to dump (household trash, lumber, brush, etc.) and will record it. Use of the maintenance yard dumpsters will be monitored and should an excessive amount of use by a particular member be identified then the board itself can address the use with the member or direct the Lake Manager to do so. The Safety Officer may or may not be present when you use the dumpster. Safety Officers will conduct periodic unannounced checks on dumpster use and content. The bottom line is a quick phone call is an alternative to stationing an officer at each dumpster. Q. Why do I have to drive all the way to the Maintenance Yard to use the dumpsters when there is a dumpster closer to me? A. By designating only those dumpsters as approved for trash it enhances the ability of the Safety Office to enforce the trash rules at problem areas while helping keep costs of enforcement down. While it may be an inconvenience to go to the maintenance yard, you are helping the Association in the enforcement of dumpster abuse and reducing the costs associated with them. The association has allowed members with contracted service to “occasionally” use association dumpsters, however in some cases the “time to time” use has become used as a standard weekly trash service. This type of use combined with undeveloped lot use where no trash stamp has been obtained results in more frequent changing of full dumpsters as well as overweight dumpsters, both of which are costly to the membership as a whole. One extra bag of trash may not seem like a lot, however if you multiply that by 30 or more different members those dumpsters fill up quickly. If we as an association cannot gain control of trash removal expenses, we may end up moving to where no use of dumpsters is allowed by members with contracted service and bulky item removal will return to one or two Lake clean-up days per year or simply become the sole responsibility of the member. Q. I am a contractor who does small jobs and I am performing a job at the lake. Can I use the dumpsters for job waste? A. No. Any job waste created during a project where a contractor/person is paid to complete the project is not allowed in the dumpsters. It is the responsibility of the contractor/person to remove the waste from Lake Viking properties. In addition contractors or handyman members who perform jobs off of lake properties are prohibited from bringing job site waste into the lake and using association dumpsters. Q. I am a member who does not have contracted trash service and I don’t have a trash stamp but I want to clean up brush from my lot. Can I use the maintenance area? A. Yes. Any lot owner who has a need to haul brush to the burn area of the maintenance yard may do so provided they have their current membership card or proof of current membership with them at the time of disposal. Remember to notify the on-duty Safety Officer. Q. What can I put in the burn area? A. Only brush or untreated lumber is allowed in the burn pile. Members abusing the burn pile area by placing other items in the pile may receive

an infraction violation and lose their privilege to the area. If the burn pile is closed, please hold your brush until it is re-opened. Brush should never be placed in dumpsters as it contributes to weight and space overloads and results in additional charges. Q. I have paid trash service but I leave on Sundays and don’t want to put trash cans out by the road since they will be there all week. Why can’t I just use the dumpsters? I am paying for trash service. A. While it is appreciated that you have trash service and don’t want to leave containers by the road all week by using dumpsters on a weekly basis you are actually paying for trash service up to three times as well as having your fellow members pay for your trash removal. First, you pay for service and don’t use it since Monday is the pickup day. Second, the Association dumpsters are paid for out of dues and assessments that each member pays, so you are paying a small fraction of the costs of dumpsters along with your fellow lake members. Finally, each change out of dumpsters along with weight overage results in additional fees. So using dumpsters on a weekly basis can actually cost you and your fellow members quite a bit. Consider a receptacle/box type container that looks nice and won’t blow around. Q. What about loose trash cans if I am not going to be here? A. Sealable containers are the best method to keep critters out of the trash while it is awaiting pickup. Some members prefer individual containers while others have trash receptacle/box containers near the road. Either are acceptable ways to contain trash. If you choose to use individual cans there is always the possibility of winds blowing them around. The Association will not walk individual containers up to the member’s house after pickup just because they are empty, however if the containers are found moved by wind the Safety Office or maintenance (or a nice neighbor) will recover them and return them next to the house as long as the member lot number is clearly marked on the container. Consider the use of bungee type cords on individual containers if necessary to keep lids on and together with the can. Trash bins or box type containers generally provide more of a challenge for critters to get into and provide the added benefit of being able to put trash out several days prior to pickup in bags. Made from wood or plastic/poly type boxes they can be attractive to the property and more convenient than individual cans. It is always suggested that receptacles be weighted down if necessary to prevent blowing. Q. What will be considered excessive use of the dumpsters? A. There is no absolute number that has been identified to be considered as excessive since there may be circumstances where a member has a temporary need for more use than normal. Generally speaking however use of dumpsters four times or less per year by a member with contracted service is not likely going to stand out as excessive, while five or six times may cause a conversation to begin with the member. The board will make the determination as to what is excessive. A phone call to the office if you have an unusual need can often save a lot of time for everyone involved. It is hoped that this article has answered some of the most common questions. Should additional questions exist please direct those questions to the Office or Safety Office for clarification. Your cooperation in reducing trash and the costs involved will be appreciated.

USE OF DUMPSTERS The Association provides dumpsters for the Beaches, Campgrounds and some Community Areas, for the purpose of accumulated trash in these areas, not day to day household trash. Please DO NOT dump building materials of ANY kind, such as lumber, sheetrock, shingles, etc. in these dumpsters.
