COMMITTEE REPORTS:

Handbook Committee

Celeste Armanees reported: We have Handbook updates to reflect the new Condo online app, for vote later this meeting.

Finance Committee

Doug Winter reported: The Finance Committee met w/ all members present. Financial Reports were reviewed. VVA investments were up $25,000 in the last month.

Campground: The Finance Committee recommends to the Board that the Campground electrical project can begin asap, using retained funds in the Campground line item to start the project. Also, the Finance Committee recommends Campground fees be increased from last year’s approx. $500/yr to this year’s fees @ $1,200 w/ sewer vs $1,100 no sewer. One attendee asked, “Why are we putting the burden of paying for Campground upgrades on the entire membership, when the Board a few years ago voted to make the Campground self-sustaining?” Mike Booth replied that self-sustaining came from the Campground Study, so the first year to track all expenses & income for the Campgrounds was ’21. Then CG fees went up in ’22. Another member said, “But we show the Campground made a profit for many many years before that!” Celeste Armanees responded, “That’s because not all expenses were included. Campground expenses were x% or y% or z% of so many different line items in VVA’s overall budget, it was impossible to do an accurate calculation, even if you tried. It was a mess. But we’ve separated

ANNUAL MEETING

The Viking Valley Association Annual Meeting will be held March 5, 2023 at 2:00 p.m. The meeting will have a change of location: Winston R-VI School Gymnasium, 200 W. 3rd St., Winston MO 64689.

out all those ‘hidden’ CG expenses & put them all into a self-sustaining CG line item that started in Jan. ’21. That’s why Campground fees went way up in ’22--because for the first time, the CG expenses scattered in all different line items were finally included in the calculations, now captured in the self-sustaining line item.” Other questions ensued. Frank Armanees, lot 62, introduced himself as having been volunteered to head up the Campground Study’s ad hoc Committee which in 2020 published their report, recommending the Campground be made selfsustaining, because our committee found Campground expenses as part of many different “buckets” of VVA’s budget so were never “counted” in Campground calculations. Frank said RE: the recent $450,000 quote on electrical grid, that back in 2020, he & his committee members & Shad Mort (then Lake Mgr) walked both Campgrounds with a Farmers Electric rep, who told them it’d be very difficult to provide an accurate cost to replace the electrical grid, because the VVA Office has no records or “map” showing where all the lines are buried. So he told us that until you’re in there—i.e. underground, you don’t know what you’re dealing with, so the Farmers Electric rep wouldn’t even give us a ballpark price. Frank said that means the $450,000 electrical upgrade could end up a higher cost (unless VVA has firm bids that won’t escalate) especially combined with the septic system that our committee

Meet the candidates for VVA Board

As our lake membership continues to grow, the greatest challenge we will face is how we can all best enjoy the lake and its resources within a reasonable financial budget.

What are the top two issues you want the board to focus on?

The board should continue its focus on providing reasonable levels of basic services such as road maintenance, dredging, and security, with an eye to the increasing demand for these basic service, as our lake membership grows. After basic services are funded, the board can focus on the allocation of the lake association’s remaining financial resources on improving and adding lake amenities as the lake membership directs.

Describe your vision for the lake.

My vision for Lake Viking is that it remains a community that pulls together to solve the inevitable questions we will face in the future. I believe this is a vision that we all share.

Terry Nibarger

Lots 657 & 1868

Current career setting: Certified Financial Planner & Branch Manager, Raymond James Financial Services

Number of years an Association member: 5 years

Previous VVA Board or Committee Service:

Strategic Planning Committee 2019 - Present

Finance Committee 2022 – Present

Restaurant Exploratory Committee 2022 – Present

Additional Personal Information you would like to share with membership: In the last 5 years, Julee and I have made many friends and fallen in love with the lake community. We are at the lake from two to five days a week year round. We love being on the water with friends, and cruising in our 1930 Chris Craft or pontoon.

What qualities of Lake Viking let you to become a property owner?

We wanted a lake close to home. Lake Viking is beautiful and under an hour. It was a great choice. All the new friends have been a fantastic bonus. If it only had a restaurant.

Describe aspects of your background that uniquely prepare you for board service.

I currently serve on three committees at the Lake. The Finance Committee and the Strategic Planning Committee touches everything around the lake, and the experience has prepared me for board service.

I help individuals and organizations with their financial goals daily – and have for my entire career of over 30 years. Difficult decisions must be addressed head-on. The toughest problems are always the ones that have been ignored.

As a Branch Manager with Raymond James Financial Services, I manage investment advisors in Chillicothe, Trenton and Columbia, MO. I have been in finance my entire career.

What do you feel is the greatest challenge facing our association?

The campground electric and septic rebuild will be the single most expensive project we have undertaken since the lake was built. Let

Just a reminder for all members that the dump is open Wednesday-Sundays weekly. This is for members only, not for contractors doing work for you.

We have also added a couple of Concrete Washout areas here at the lake for concrete trucks to wash out. One is at the Maintenance Dump area and the other one is on the South side at 165th & LVT at South End Containment Pond (known as Temporary Road).

that sink in. Let’s get this right.

We are at a critical point in the lake’s history. How we deal with this issue will leave a legacy for many years – for better or worse.

What are the top two issues you want the board to focus on?

Here are three:

1) Re-examine the Campground and its rules. What are the goals? Design and rebuild a plan that follows the desires of most of the Association’s members.

2) Increase the focus on safety of members and guest lake-wide by taking steps to continually test the water for electricity around our docks with a mobile testing device.

3) Continue actions to preserve our lake and be good stewards of our natural and financial resources.

Describe your vision for the lake.

I see a happy, fun place – where we have a large group of friendly, active, and involved neighbors who freely give of their time, efforts, and money toward a variety of things that help us all. A place where neighbors help neighbors – and forget the division that has gripped our country.

Wouldn’t it be great? That is today at the Lake.

At a time when the world has become so divided, we have a place to forget all of that and come together, and be with friends.

The best part of the lake is the community. We need to hang on to this. It is special.

Describe aspects of your background that uniquely prepare you for board service.

I am currently on the adjustment board for the City of Hamilton. I am the Executive Director for the Supervision Services board, which I have held for over 10 years.

What do you feel is the greatest challenge facing our association?

Dealing with the growth of the Lake while preserving nature and continuing to maintain the esthetically pleasing surrounding and community.

VVA Minutes

knew back in ’20 also needs an upgrade. More questions ensued. Troy Lesan stated that this discussion is moot, as the topic of who pays for the electrical grid will be voted on at the March Annual Meeting, using the motion that resulted from the Dec. 3rd Special Meeting.

Morgan Stanley investments: Attendee Mike Feiden lot 243 asked about the 5% decrease overall, per last month’s minutes in Lake Viking News. Terry Nibarger lot 657 on the Finance Committee responded, “My sincere apologies—that was a reading error on my part. During our meeting, I said a 5% decrease, but it was actually a .5% (0.5%) decrease. Much better. So at least the error was in VVA’s favor. And yes, I’m a Financial Advisor in my career, but not for Morgan-Stanley so I don’t make a penny on anything I do for VVA.”

Strategic Planning Committee

George Eshnaur reported: The committee met w/ 5 members attending. Various items were reviewed, as it had been some time since the committee met. We’ll measure back to the existing Strategic Plan, to see what has been vs. is yet to be done. Also discussed were: the new Condo app, Facebook, and ideas to generate revenue for VVA. Next month, the committee will discuss developing a new 5-Year Strategic Plan.

Activities Committee

Celeste Armanees reported: No report this month.

Building Committee

Marvin McNabb reported: The committee met, and approved 3 Building permits--none for houses.

If this motion fails, move to 2.

2. Association members will pay a one-time assessment of $150 per association member to cover 50% ($225,000) of the electrical grid project in the two campgrounds, and the other 50% ($225,000) will come from the Deferred Maintenance Capital fund – Income line item 4350

If this motion fails, move to 4.

4. Proposed Motion for Funding and New By-Law

VVA members are to pay a $100 assessment to fund 2023 campground electrical expense.

ARTICLE VIII MISCELLANEOUS By-Laws (Page 14 -15 VVA Handbook)

Section 5: Campgrounds The campgrounds are not a general VVA amenity. Rather they are a limited amenity with no more than 200 campsites available at any given time. Therefore “VVA Members in Good Standing,” must not bear assessments paying for entire cost of campground infrastructure improvements. Campground assessments to VVA membership must be proportional in regard to the number of campers who are part of total membership number and not to exceed 25% of amount of any campground related assessment being proposed at an Annual or Special Meeting.

• By-Law on pg. 9: Shall VVA’s Annual Meeting be changed from March to October? See proposal.

• By-Law on pg. 6: … In the case of a married couple being the Active Member, then all privileges (insert “with the exception of unlimited guests”) shall be extended to his/her immediate family … who still reside in the home of such Active Member.

• By-Law on pg. 8, Section 8 on Late Fees: Shall current verbiage on late fees ($x or y% penalty) be replaced with higher late fees—i.e. “a 4% late fee will be assessed at 30 days late, again at 60 days late, and again at 90 days late.”

• Should VVA Raise 2023 Dues & Assessments to members (9% cost-of-living increase per Consumer Price Index for inflation)

Vote on 2023 Dues & Assessments

Special Assessments = $597.32 From $548.00

Special Lake Assessments = $114.45 From $ 105.00

Dredge Personnel = $21.80 From $20.00

Special Lake Accrual = $32.70 From $30.00

Special Road Assessments = $37.06 From $34.00

Capital Project Assessment = $46.87 From $43.00

TOTAL Assessments for 1 lot, including $75.00 Dues = $925.20 a $70.20 = 9% increase vs. last year

Proposal – Bylaw Change the Annual meeting date

DATE: January 2023

Current Bylaw: Article VI, Section 1. Annual Meetings:

The Annual Meeting of the active Members who are current in the payment of all due and all other charges, fees and assessments as provided for under Article IV and who have satisfied all monetary obligations imposed upon such member under Article XIV, commencing with the year 1970, shall be held at the principal office of the Association, or at such other place within Daviess County, Missouri as may be determined by the Board of Directors, and shall be designated in the notice of said meeting, on the first Sunday in the month of March of each year(or if said day be a legal holiday, then on the next succeeding day not a legal holiday) at 2:00 pm for the purpose of electing Directors, and for the transaction of such other business as may be properly brought before the meeting.

Proposed By Law Change:

The Annual Meeting of the active Members who are current in the payment of all due and all other charges, fees and assessments as provided for under Article IV and who have satisfied all monetary obligations imposed upon such member under Article XIV, commencing with the year 1970, shall be held at the principal office of the Association, or at

such other place within Daviess County, Missouri as may be determined by the Board of Directors, and shall be designated in the notice of said meeting, on the third Sunday in the month of October of each year(or if said day be a legal holiday, then on the next succeeding day not a legal holiday) at 2:00 pm for the purpose of electing Directors, and for the transaction of such other business as may be properly brought before the meeting.

Proposed Bylaw Change

Reason:

Budget – Currently, the association operates on a phantom budget for the first 2 months of the year. This date change will allow the association to approve the budget before the start of the fiscal year.

Attendance – The current date does not allow attendance for members that close their houses down or travel south for the winter. This change moves the annual meeting from early spring until fall hopefully before members are closing their houses for winter and members travel to warmer weather.

Weather – This change diminishes the chance of rescheduling the annual meeting due to the weather.

Town Hall Meeting Informs Members

Town Halls are a little different from other VVA Meetings. No resolutions voted on, no minutes taken; but usually plenty of information to share with members for the upcoming year. The Town Halls have occurred in February during the past few years, and this meeting, held on a particularly warm and sunny day on February 19 attracted around 100 VVA members.

Attendees were briefed on several topics. As usual Shawn Hepinstall started the meeting with an update on the ongoing dredging effort at Lake Viking. Shawn always gives a good presentation, complete great pictures, but this year the focus was a little different. The VVA will contract Dredge America out of Platte City, Mo. to do a full summer schedule of Dredging on the south end. This is a different direction for Lake Viking. We have always done our own dredging, but this time, we use the funds that were already present in our budget and contract Dredge America for a specified amount of cubic yards. A benefit of this arrangement is that VVA won’t have to pay an extra employee and will possibly avoid another one of those non budgeted, high-dollar breakdowns or emergency repairs that seem to occur so often. This arrangement with Dredge America is an experimental one.

Other speakers: Board Member Troy Lesan who went over financial documents and the financial outlook for 2023. Finance Committee Chair Paula Hepinstall answered budget line-item questions. Terry Nibarger reported

on the Association’s investments, which now include a stock portfolio and funds earning 4% interest in a Money Market Account. Safety Director Jason McTheeney was also present to update members on the Safety staff and possibilities in the future direction in boat stickering.

The final speaker was Board Member George Eshnaur. George addressed the upcoming motion by the campground committee for a $300 per member assessment for campground electrical repairs. George acknowledged that if this motion doesn’t pass there will be other motions and he has expense breakdowns on several different funding possibilities. There were question and answer periods after each speaker with many questions on various topics posed by members. It was

“Mission Accomplished” for the Town Hall. Next up – The Annual Meeting on March 5, 2 PM @ Winston High School.

Annual Meeting of Members

VVA 2022 HANDBOOK BY-LAWS (Page (9)

ARTICLE VI: ANNUAL MEETING of Members of the Association

Section 1. Annual Meetings: The Annual Meeting of the Active Members who are current in the payment of all dues and all other charges, fees and assessments as provided for under ARTICLE IV and who have satisfied all monetary obligations . . . shall be held at the principal office of the Association, or at such other place within Daviess County, Missouri, as may be determined by the Board of Directors, and shall be designated in the notice of said meeting, on the first Sunday in the month of March of each year.

Looking Ahead to the Annual Meeting

The first thing that needs to be brought to the attention of VVA members is the location listed in the notice for the 2023 Annual Meeting that appears on page 1 of this edition. Lake Manager, Jeff Ferguson acting on direction from the Board of Directors, has secured the gymnasium of the Winston School in order to accommodate a much larger attendance than usual. There are several advantages with this location. First of all, Winston will be a closer drive for the many VVA members who will be driving from areas of metropolitan Kansas City and Saint Joseph. Secondly, the fire rating at the Viking Valley Clubhouse may render this location as both inadequate and unsafe. And lastly, the agenda items that membership will be voting on promise to draw a much greater attendance.

As a result of the December 3, 2022 Special Meeting (minutes included in the December edition of Lake Viking News), a motion was approved to be brought before the Annual Meeting that “the $450,000 cost to replace the Campground electrical system be paid by VVA Membership.”

According to the vote at the Special Meeting, this motion will be voted upon by membership. The minutes of the Special Meeting reflect that the consensus at that meeting was, to paraphrase, that the VVA Campgrounds are a Lake Viking Amenity, therefore costs of physical infrastructure improvements should be met by VVA membership. Again it is proposed that the cost of the electrical upgrade which has been set by bids from contractors at $450,000 be covered by assessments to members.

It is fair to say that most of the members present at the Special Meeting were campers, the meeting was about an issue that affected them, and the resulting motion reflected their overwhelming sentiments. At the annual meeting, there will a larger cross-section of members represented and some will argue that 1500 VVA members should not have to bear the large cost of an amenity that only provides for the 200 members who are campers.

Membership assessments are strictly a topic for Annual Meetings. There are no other meetings, per VVA By-laws, where membership assessments, as part of the Annual Budget are to be voted on. The motion that came from the Special Meeting will absolutely be voted on at the Annual Meeting – yea or nay.

Many of the arguments in regard to the camping infrastructure funding have been made again and again and for the sake of expediency in order that the meeting doesn’t drag on and on into the night, ALL members should know that President Marvin McNabb will gavel the meeting when dialogue from the floor drifts into irrelevant topics or redundant “talking points.” A parliamentarian will also be on hand to assist in maintaining an orderly and efficient Meeting.

Other topics to be voted on at the Annual Meeting will be a motion that will change the date of the Annual Meeting from March to October in order that more members can attend. Three candidates for open Board of Director Seats will also be voted on. All of these voting initiatives will take time and require presentations. There will also be a Dredge and Finance Committee report. The meeting will start at 2PM. The sign-in table will be open at 1, and members are encouraged to show up for sign-in early. Financial Documents for 2022, the 2023 Budget, and Board Candidate profiles appear in this edition of the Lake Viking News. Members are encouraged to read these in order to be well-informed. We look forward to seeing you at the 2023 Annual Meeting of the Viking Valley Association on Sunday, March 5.

All contract mowers are required to submit a customer list to the Association office. If you are not on their initial list, you may be accidentally billed by the Association, so please contact your mower early. The below listed mowers have registered with the Association office and can usually be reached in the evening. There may be other mowers who advertise in the Lake Viking News.

VVA Minutes

Fire Department

Tony Gronniger reported: We met Feb. 10th. Four members of the Fire Dept. were sponsored to attend training. Two staff members have completed EMT training. Tony has met with the ISO (agency which sets fire ratings) and says we expect to maintain or better our rating.

Campground Committee

Mike Booth reported: Two virtual meetings were held. On the committee, some positions will be re-assigned to include non-Campground members. The committee is working on scenarios for the Campground repair.

Lake Committee

Troy Lesan reported: The committee will start roadside inspections this week. Troy encouraged members to check their signage to ensure the lot number (must have the word “Lot” per recent Board vote) & your 911 address (# only, so no street name necessary) are both clear and readable, which will take you 5 minutes & possibly save you an Infraction. Both must be displayed where applicable.

Dredge Committee

Shawn Hepinstall (Chair) reported: Silt ponds 1 & 2 will be cleaned out. Dredge America will be here in June to begin dredging. Berm construction begins in March, to

help prevent erosion on the beaches.

Restaurant Exploratory Committee

Robert Walton (Chair) reported: No report this month.

Tech Committee

Jeff Ferguson reported:

Internet “fiber” install: Jeff met with MidStates, who has received a grant from the state of Missouri, to install more efficient “fiber” Internet service at Lake Viking and Altamont. Their project will begin in 60 days & will take 12 months to complete. Internet service will be much faster than existing service. Info will be available soon on the cost to subscribers for this new service.

Condo online app: The new Condo app went live Jan. 1, which requires your email address to sign up & use it. Please call the Office at 660-322-9001 to provide your e-mail address, as we currently have e-mail addresses for only ½ of VVA’s 1,519 total members. As the Condo system becomes updated and used by more people, our LVmo.org website will become less used and eventually depleted. The Condo app will include: Activities calendar, VVA Handbook, apply for Building Permits, register your boats for the lake, Membership Authorization & Guest Authorization--no more laminated Membership cards nor laminated Guest cards to keep track of, as it will

all be on-line.

Continued from page 5

Lake Director’s Report

Jeff Ferguson reported: We received the necessary permit from DNR, so Campground 1’s lagoon has been cleaned out & rock to be added around the outside of the lagoon to address the muskrat problem. Tree-trimming continues around the lake. We are looking at the 2023 chip and seal project on approx. 6.7 miles of road.

Financial Statement Approval

Troy Lesan moved to approve the Jan. Financial Reports. Seconded by Doug Winter; motion passed.

Guest Time

No guests were on the agenda for this meeting.

BOARD DISCUSSION

Handbook Rule changes: Celeste Armanees reported: Next is to vote on the 4-page document of many small updates to the Handbook Rules, which I e-mailed to the Board last week. All these proposed changes were suggested by Safety Mgr Jason McTheeney. These proposed “housekeeping” changes are for 3 different reasons: 1) To reflect the new Condo app, we added “using VVA’s online system”—e.g. to replace laminated Mem-

bership cards & Guest cards. Also to access “VVA’s online system” (Condo app) to submit Building Permit forms, Clubhouse reservations, etc. 2) Infractions: changed current wording “will receive” to “subject to” a $500 fine, so gives Safety team more discretion in any Infraction fines. 3) Simplified & standardized our water safety Rules that currently say 50ft vs. 75ft vs. 100ft from shore, depending on which Rule. So simplified all water rules to a standardized 75 feet from shore. Celeste Armanees made a motion to approve these Handbook Rule changes that were e-mailed to the Board. Seconded by Mike Booth; motion passed unanimously.

Campground Fees: Doug Winter made a motion to increase Campground fees to

$1,200/yr with sewer vs. $1,100/yr no sewer. Seconded by Troy Lesan; motion passed unanimously.

Campground Electrical for vote @ Annual Meeting: Celeste Armanees made a motion to add a question to the ballot for vote @ Annual Meeting, reminding folks that already on the Annual Meeting ballot is the following question per the Special Meeting held Dec. 3rd: “Shall every VVA member pay a one-time $300 Campground Assessment to replace the $450,000 Campground electrical grid?” However, Celeste stated that electrical is only step 1. To get the Campground where it needs to be for the future, you can’t do step 1 electrical, without doing step 2 which is a min. $200,000 septic upgrade needed in the

next year or so. Combined, this Campground project is by far the #1 largest spend in VVA history, since the lake was built. So, Celeste motioned to add this question to the Annual Meeting ballot: “Shall VVA Association spend $450,000 electrical grid + minimum $200,000 septic = total $650,000 on the Campgrounds … to be 100% paid by increased Campground fees, such that VVA’s “break-even” to recoup this $ spend is in 5-7 years?” The motion was seconded by Troy Lesan. The vote on the motion was 2:2 with Lesan and Armanees voting yes; Booth and Winter voting no. Board Pres. Marvin McNabb cast the tie-breaking vote of no; motion failed to pass.

Mike Booth made a motion to adjourn the meeting at 2:57pm. Seconded by Troy Lesan; motion passed. The Board adjourned to Executive Session, to discuss Legal, Personnel, and Board organizational matters.
