VVA Board of Directors Monthly Meeting Call to Order

Tony Gronniger, lot 2281, called the meeting to order, held in the upper level of the clubhouse at 2pm. Board members present were: Troy Lesan, lot 576; Allan Slavin, lot 181; Marvin McNabb, lot 28; Mike Booth, lot 2380; Celeste Armanees, lot 62. Troy Lesan led in prayer. Shad Mort led the Pledge of Allegiance. Approval of Minutes

Troy Lesan moved to approve the minutes of the January Board meeting. Celeste Armanees seconded; motion passed. COMMITTEE REPORTS: Handbook Committee

As Board contact for this committee, Celeste Armanees read 7 proposed changes to the VVA Handbook—most were submitted by the Safety Dept, or the Board. To save time, they’ll be presented in related pairs to be voted on. Pg. 17: as 1 st sentence under BUILDING RULES and REGS, add: CURRENT: (none) ADD: “For purposes of clarity, the Building Committee has the following definitions for all lots designated as Residential Lots: • UNIMPROVED LOT is defined as a lot w/ no house. However, it may have a storage shed, a dock, a shelter, and/or patio. • IMPROVED LOT is defined as a lot w/ a completed house.” Reason: For clarity, since these phrases are used in Handbook. Pg. 20 under Silt Fence paragraph: CURRENT … vs. PROPOSED is underlined: Silt Fence: “ … After shoreline work has begun, straw bales (insert “or sock or tube-style barriers”) are required at the end of each workday. Upon completion of the shoreline, a contractor-grade silt fence, along with a solid run of staked straw bales (insert “or sock or tube-style barriers”) must be installed and maintained, until such time that a ground cover has been established. …” Reason: Per contractors, sock or tube-style barriers are just as, if not more effective, than straw bales—even on the shoreline, which our current rule prohibits. Celeste Armanees moved to approve both Handbook changes on pages 17 and 20 as stated above. Troy Lesan seconded; motion passed. Pg. 26 bottom, under “Personal Watercraft”, last sentence: CURRENT … vs. PROPOSED is underlined: Any personal watercraft violations will automatically (insert “may”) be issued an infraction ticket. Reason (as suggested by Safety Dept): Safety Officer needs discretion to issue an infraction or not. Pg. 38 under General Order Rules and Regulations, replace: CURRENT: “Smoking in the Clubhouse is prohibited at any time. REPLACE with: “Smoking: Smoking is prohibited in all Association-owned buildings.” Reason: For consistency in all VVA buildings. Celeste Armanees moved to approve both Handbook changes on pages 26 and 38 as stated above. Allan Slavin seconded; motion passed. Pg. 35 top, under paragraph “ATVs, Golf Carts, Four-Wheelers and Any Motorized Conveyance”, add as #8: CURRENT: (none) PROPOSED: 8) “Auxiliary lights on the roadway after dark must be turned “off”. Reason (as suggested by Safety Dept): Auxiliary lights are also prohibited on state highways, as these can be blinding to oncoming motorists.

Volume 34, No. 10

February 13, 2022

Celeste Armanees moved to approve the Handbook change on page 35 as stated above. Marvin McNabb seconded. After discussion, this Handbook change on “auxiliary lights” was tabled until the next meeting. Pg. 39 under section “Trash Disposal”, 2nd paragraph: CURRENT: “All trash put out the day prior to scheduled pick-up date must be placed in a container with a sealable lid securely closed.” PROPOSED: “All trash put out (delete “the day”) prior to scheduled pick-up ….” Reason (as suggested by Safety Dept): Should delete “the day” prior because if this is required, then all the permanent trash boxes built at roadside would be in violation. Celeste Armanees moved to approve Handbook change to pg. 39 under section “Trash Disposal”, but motion failed to pass. Pg. 39 last line, under section “Dumpster Use” CURRENT: “10. Misuse of dumpsters will be subject to a $250 fine, as determined by the Infraction Committee.” PROPOSED: “10. Misuse of dumpsters is subject to a maximum $500 fine, as determined by the Infraction Committee.” Reason: To give Safety Officers discretion on the fine amount according to severity of the offense. Celeste Armanees moved to approve the Handbook change on page 39 under “Dumpster Use”. Allan Slavin seconded; motion passed. Finance Committee

Finance Committee met on-line via Microsoft Teams called to order @ 5:01pm on Thurs., Feb. 10 by Chair John Kmetz with 8 members present, and Tony Gronniger also attending. Financial Statements were reviewed. Expenses on a comparative baContinued on page 5

Meet the candidates for VVA Board Tony Gronniger Lot 2281 Current career setting: Retired Number of years an Association Member: 40 plus Previous VVA Board or committee service: Currently serving on the Board of Directors as Board President. I serve also as the Long-range planning committee liaison, and the Volunteer Fire Department, currently serving as Fire Chief. Additional personal or family data you would like to share with membership: Family purchased in 1968, I have been an owner for approximately 30 years, and have been a full-time resident for 17 plus years. What qualities of Lake Viking led you to become a property owner? Lake Life close to my former area (K.C. metro) yet quiet rural lake setting. Affordable living. Good place to retire. Describe aspects of your background that uniquely prepare you for board service. Retired after 30 plus years at the Independence, MO Fire Department serving as a fire service mechanic. Served for 15 years on local private school boards both local and K.C. area. Served in many offices in fraternal organizations in K.C. metro. Recently retired from MODOT. Currently serving on the Board of Directors at Lake Viking. What do you feel is the greatest challenge facing our association? Continuing our recently introduced upgrades to our office and administration in the area of communication and IT. Continuing our infrastructure upgrades in dredge and road improvements while maintaining a strong financial position to carry the lake into the future. What are the top two issues you want the board to focus on? 1. Financial stability while maintaining affordability for our membership. 2. Continuing to deliver outstanding services to the membership by maintaining a quality staff. Describe your vision for Lake Viking. Maintain and encourage a vibrant and diverse lake community by solid financial planning coupled with a living and vibrant long-range plan.

George Eshnaur Lot 505 Current career setting: Assistant Professor of Finance Number of years an Association member: 2 years Previous VVA board or committee service: VVA Finance Committee Additional personal or family data you would like to share with membership: Married to Nicole. We have two daughters (Emma and Mary). What qualities of Lake Viking led you to become a property owner? Lake Viking is a quiet and relaxing place where our family can enjoy themselves. My father had a lot here in the 1990s, so I remember spending quality time here as a kid. Now I get to enjoy the lake with my family and friends. Describe aspects of your background that uniquely prepare you for board service. I have a business background emphasizing finance: budgeting, capital expenditure allocation, and long-term strategic financial planning. I have also worked in settings with people of diverse backgrounds, leading to a solid understanding of how to engage and work with people of varying opinions and perspectives. What do you feel is the greatest challenge facing our association? I think sustainable growth (especially as the tier lots continue to develop) is paramount to maintaining our lake experience. Ensuring our infrastructure is ready to meet that challenge is equally important. What are the top two issues you want the board to focus on? Establish a balanced and equitable long-term strategic plan that meets 5, 10, and 20-year metrics. Within that long-term planning, the board must pay special attention to the financial efficiency of its decisions. Those are the two most important as everything falls into those processes.


Describe your vision for Lake Viking. Lake Viking is unique in its setting, constituents, and obligations to the community. The Lake Viking community comprises people from varied backgrounds and communal expectations. I feel comfortable in knowing and understanding a one size fits all approach does not work at the lake. I see a collective value of a bold long-term vision, solid planning, a strong team, hard work, determination, and the ability to identify, implement, and operationalize strategic priorities. For me, this statement captures the essence of my calling to seek election and speaks directly to the alignment I feel with this leadership opportunity. I am at my best as a leader and a servant when I am fully engaged in creating this future, working with energy and conviction toward an inspiring long-term vision. A long-term vision that satisfies all members of Lake Viking.

Doug Winter When it comes to leading teams, implementing strategy and balancing the challenges of day-to-day operations, Doug is an expert. He understands how to motivate, develop and lead team members to exceed industry standards. His strong leadership skills and positive energy deliver results and increase business potential. He’s also skilled in problem solving, growing revenue and client databases.

Among his additional areas of expertise: financial and project management, budgeting, training and development, profitability, staff retention and setting and meeting strategic goals. Doug is a newer resident to the lake moving to Lake Viking in the spring of 2019. He lives at the lake full time.

Matthew Hibler I’ve been married to Jessica Hibler for 20 years come this July and we moved up here full time in January 2021. I’m working on my 10th year being employed with the State of Missouri Department of Corrections at Western Missouri Correctional Center in Cameron as their supply manager overseeing all day to day operations of their warehouse area. I have been coming to Lake Viking since before I was a teenager with my parents Flint and Mary Hibler. This has been like a second home to me during the summer months while growing up enjoying camping, swimming, boating, tubing and learning how to ski. I have had the great pleasure of showing my 4 children all the same awesome experiences that I grew up with and now at this time I have 3 grandchildren getting to enjoy all the pleasures this wonderful lake offers. That is why I want to be involved in keeping this great lake around for years to come so everyone that has kids, grandkids or great-grandkids will be able to experience the same as I have and make memories here! I would bring to the Board a broad rang of skills and knowledge, including: • 20+ years of supervisor experience from my work history • 6+ years of involvement with working with City of Hamilton Board • Wealth of knowledge with operating and supervising profitable organizations • Love and passion for this lake to be everything that it can for its members • Have worked for Safety Patrol off and on over the years in the past • I have been voluntarily serving on the Building Committee for the past year I would welcome the opportunity to help serve the wonderful members of the Lake Viking Association in keeping this lake a wonderful place for all their families to come and make unforgettable memories while having fun in a safe and friendly environment!!

VVA Board of Directors Meeting sis were already increased substantially from January 2021, due to expenses for Phase 2 of Silt Basin construction. Retained Earnings document has been updated by Paula Hepinstall, who explained that several fund categories such as “Community Area” Sales Fund and Dredge Fund were adjusted to reflect Silt Basin expenses for 2021. The 2022 Capital Expenditures document was also adjusted to reflect a smaller amount, due to some of those expenses moving to the Silt Basin Construction line item. Collections Agency for past-due amounts to VVA: Our contract with Northwest Financial Services (NWFS) is up for renewal, so Troy Lesan has invited NWFS account manager Tracy Klamert to attend the Finance Committee meeting in March for a Q&A. She was very receptive to the idea and agreed to attend. Troy reported that Celeste Armanees questioned the line-item expense on Campground Utilities for Jan. 2022. The Committee agreed that the 2021 Campground expense for winter electricity should be looked at for comparison. Mike Booth asked if the Campground Manager was notified about the electric bill prior to the meeting? Mike insisted “Let the record show that it seems to be the new normal that the Campground Manager and the Campground Committee are being left out of ongoing discussions.” Celeste Armanees responded that the Campground Manager was e-mailed an invite to the Finance Meeting w/ all financial statements attached, but he did not attend (phone into) the meeting.

Shawn Hepinstall reported the South End structure is being constructed: Drain tubes are in, but the weather got cold and they haven’t been able to pour the concrete. Shawn reported that additional pipe and floats have been purchased to reach as far back as needed, behind the Yacht Club. Shawn said he has been asked when dredging will begin, and he is hoping in the spring, after the concrete has been poured and allowed to cure. Shawn said this spring they will also be looking at how to slow the silt down at Chesney’s Creek, the south ponds, and Three Tubes. Lake Manager Report


Shad Mort reported that some tube replacements are needed at Deer Run. Deer Run has twin tubes that are 7 feet in diameter, approx. 80 feet long. The tubes are both starting to rust out in the bottom and are going to be problematic. Shad said we are getting bids right now, so this will likely be a capital expenditure this year. Shad said options are being explored as to putting a concrete box culvert in, or a tube similar to what is there now. Shad reported that the transition from Lake Manager (himself) to Managing Director (Cathy Poindexter) is going well. The Board has been provided a list of the new role’s duties and responsibilities, so the two of them are reviewing all that now as her On-Boarding for the new role.


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

Guest #1: Greg and Nancy Hall, lots Z5 and Z6, were present to speak with the Board of Directors about redesignating lots Z5 and Z6. Greg would like to have a Home Improvement office and workshop area to keep his tools. He would like to have both lots, as well as any future lots he purchases, to have the same lot designation (what the lot can be used for). He has looked at S Lots to purchase, but there are none available. So Nadine Parmenter suggested he look into Z lots. Greg’s business would be to rent out to Association members only: large storage units for cars, trucks, boats, and RVs. Greg would like to acquire lot Z4, Z7, and Z8 for his development. Shad told him that the Board can change the designation of the lots only as long as it does not conflict with what is already designated here at Lake Viking. For example, Shad told Greg that the Marina already has exclusive rights to watercraft storage (so that’s not an option for Greg), and the lot next to Lake Viking Sales already has a designation as mini-storage even though they are not built. Troy Lesan said a designation for Home Improvement (e.g. building sheds) could be done on these lots. Shad told Greg if he was to put his building for the Home Improvement business on one lot, and a building for his personal storage on another--that cannot be done, because Z lots cannot be used as S lots. Z lots are for commercial use only. Troy Lesan moved to redesignate lot Z6 for “Home Improvement business”. Marvin McNabb seconded; motion passed. (Vote by name: Troy Lesan, Allan Slavin, Marvin McNabb, Celeste Armanees voted yes; Mike Booth voted no.) Troy Lesan moved to redesignate lot Z5 for “Home Improvement business”. Allan Slavin Continued on page 12

USE OF DUMPSTERS The Association p r o v i d e s 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. Mattresses, furniture, and appliances WILL NOT be picked up. Violators are subject to fines up to $500.00

These By Law changes will be voted on by membership Pg. 8 By-Law: under Article IV, Section 8 “Non-Payment Penalties”: CURRENT: “Any payment of dues, assessments or other charges received more than ten (10) days after the due date will be deemed a late payment, and a penalty will be assessed … in the amount of Twenty Dollars ($20.00), and lake and community privileges are immediately suspended…. PROPOSED: Add: “At 45 days late, an additional Eighty Dollars ($80.00) late fee will be assessed.” Reason: Currently, VVA’s penalties for late-payments are very weak @ a total $20 late fee, then starting at 60 days late 1.0% per month begins accruing. Hence, every year approx. 15% of dues & annual fees are late-pays & they’re late by many many months. Vs. With late-pay penalties more in line with industry standards, VVA will minimize the countless hours of labor currently lost to “chasing money” of late payments. Pg. 10 By-Law: under Article VII "Board of Directors", add as last paragraph under Section 6 “Manner of Acting”: CURRENT: (not in VVA Handbook anywhere) PROPOSED: “Conflict of Interest on a vote: Board members are expected to vote according to what, in their best judgment, is in the best interest of VVA as a whole--NOT what will personally benefit himself/herself, or business partners, or friends, etc. Hence, a Board member who stands to personally benefit from any given vote, in a way obviously disproportional to how VVA members as a whole would benefit, must recuse himself/herself from said vote. If he/she did not recuse, then a re-vote must occur.” Reason: This is standard on any Board everywhere. And because if a future Board either inadvertently or on purpose forgets to sign our current hard-copy Code of Ethics, or, whether signed or not, a person is on the Board for personal gain reasons, there’s currently no official means (such as a Rule printed in Handbook) for VVA members to “call the Board out” on any unethical voting for personal gain. So adding this ethics clause to the VVA Handbook gives you, the VVA member, this “check & balance” power if any future Board members are all friends & decide to “go rogue” by NOT calling each other out if there’s a conflict of interest on a certain vote. For example, a Board member who is an electrician, or homebuilder, or trash hauler, or realtor, or publisher, etc... should recuse from a vote that would obviously benefit his/her personal finances. Pg. 15 By-Law: under Article XIV “Enforcement”, Section 4 “Infraction”, add as 3 rd paragraph: CURRENT: … ADD: “A member who files a complaint of a Rule violation against another member & fails to attend the scheduled Infraction Committee hearing (as the only “witness” of the alleged violation) may be subject to an infraction. Once a complaint has been filed with the Association Office or Safety Dept, the complaint cannot be retracted.” Reason (as per Safety Dept): We have seen that our current process allows a member to “harass” another member through the complaint/infraction process, without repercussion. Vs. The proposed would issue a possible infraction against a “no-show” complaining member—especially if he/she is a repeat “noshow” complainer against (harassing) another member … since the accused member DOES take the time (needlessly) to appear at the Infraction Meeting hearing to defend him/herself & yet the complaint is dismissed, as there is no witness (the “no-show” complaining member) of the alleged violation. Then the “no-show”member can start over again & file some other complaint … resulting in much wasted time for the accused/targeted member(s) and for Safety/Infraction Committee. The proposed would discourage this practice. Pg. 15 By-Law under Article XIV “Enforcement”, Section 7 “Notice”: CURRENT: “No hearing shall be held on any cause without at least three (3) days’ notice to the member or party charged with violation or infraction, unless such person or member shall waive the privilege of receiving the threeday (3) notice in writing.” PROPOSED: “… at least seven (7) days’ notice to the member … unless such person or member shall waive …the seven-day (7) notice in writing.” Reason (as per Safety Dept who enforces our rules, to be more fair to members): Handbook pg. 15 Section on “Notice” allows the Safety Dept. to write infractions up to 3 days before an Infraction Meeting. But on the same page (Section on “Infraction”), members cannot request a continuance/delay unless the request is made 7 days in advance of the initial appearance date/Infraction Meeting. Please consider making both rules 7 days, so they match. VIKING VALLEY ASSOCIATION 2022 CAPITAL EXPENDITURES Capital Expenditures

PWSD #3 of Daviess County: CALL TO ORDER Kyle Parkhurst, President (2023), called the meeting to order at 4:00pm which was held at the VVA Clubhouse, lower level. Members in attendance were Troy Lesan (2024), Harlan Horst (2023), and Jeffrey Speaker (2022). Heather Lund (2024) was unable to attend. Also in attendance were Roger Barker, Water Superintendent, Diane Hulett, Clerk, and Bartlett & West employees, Geoff Tavelli, Jim Ross, and Jim Rinner. . NEW BUSINESS Discussion was held with Bartlett & West representatives regarding continued project delays and inability to acquire the DNR permit needed to begin construction. Geoff Tavelli indicated that changes to AWC’s design, as well as supply chain issues, have caused delays and that submission to DNR for the permit could not be completed until all changes were finalized. It was noted that 86 pages of design had recently been submitted to DNR. The AWC changes and supply chain issues have now altered the timeline for delivery of equipment from March 2022 to July 2022. It was noted that the building design did not show an overhang. Jim Rinner stated that the original design did not include an overhang but either he or Geoff would contact Ross Construction to see if this could be added and what the additional cost would be. The GMP #2 contract should be finalized soon so this figure will be reflected in the cost if the board chooses to include an overhang.

Special Open Meeting January 11, 2022

The plant upgrade invoices from November and December totaling $463,858.58 were presented for review. A motion was made by Harlan Horst and seconded by Troy Lesan to pay the bills as presented. All voted in favor; motion carried. Information on health insurance plans was reviewed. After discussion, Harlan Horst moved to accept the Missouri Chamber Federation Option #3 plan. The motion died for lack of a second. Jeffrey Speaker then made a motion to accept the Missouri Chamber Federation Option #5 plan and Troy Lesan seconded. All members voted to approve; motion carried. Jeffrey Speaker moved to enter executive session and Harlan Horst seconded. Roll call votes were: Kyle Parkhurst-yes, Jeffrey Speaker-yes, Harlan Horst-yes, Troy Lesan-yes. The motion was approved and the board entered closed session at 5:30pm. At 6:30pm, the board returned to regular session. The meeting was adjourned at 6:40pm. Respectfully Submitted, Jeffrey Speaker

Good Progress: A tremendous amount of work on the new sediment structure has gone on during the past year. In 2022, the Viking Valley Association will have a new 92,000 cubic yard staged silt basin system with plans to start dredging later this spring. This overhead (with Yacht Club in upper portion) is a photo taken in September of 2021 showing progress made on Stage 1 of silt basin construction. Additional drains will also be installed as part of the silt basin “dewatering process.”

Dredge pipes with new flotation blocks are in place and ready to be installed. Dozers from Selby Construction and VVA are also busy cleaning out and reconditioning South Big Creek which is a major source of silt and other unwanted debris coming into the Lake.

The Board expressed concern about the safety of cooking on a boat, and where would they leave it at night. Drew Reynolds said they would pull the boat out nightly. The Board of Directors

would like to do some checking on this for safety reasons. The Board of Directors requested a business plan be presented to them for further discussion. Guest #3: Sally Zerbe was present to ask for clarification on the financials. Sally has been following the minutes printed in the Lake Viking News since October, and some of the totals did not add up. Her question is regarding Morgan Stanley, Bucket 3. Sally is questioning if VVA has $285,000 or $517,000 in Bucket 3. The Board responded it was recorded incorrectly--that Morgan Stanley, Bucket 3 still has $517,000. Sally also wanted to know if the Board of Directors

Big Success for Gallatin Rotary Trivia Extravaganza By Troy Lesan

“Wanted: people with knowledge about . . . everything!” That is the appeal my teammates on Kyle’s Whiz Kids should have made prior to the 6th Annual Trivia Night. The Extravaganza was held on the evening of February 6, at the Spillman Center in Jamesport. This event is a blast. The questions came in four different rounds in a slick presentation, created by Gallatin Rotarian Daren Adkins, and were projected on a big screen by resident tech guru Dennis Schlaiss. The MC was the incomparable Lance Rains, who kept the program moving, while the “Jeopardy Music” played softly in the background. It was, once again, a very polished production, and yes knowledge about “everything” was a helpful attribute for contestants. And hey, don’t get me wrong, I’ve been a Kyle’s Whiz Kids Team Member for several years – our team recruited by Rotarian Kyle Parkhurst, a longtime Lake Viking Association Member, actually won this thing a few years ago – but our problem this year was we possessed knowledge about “some things,” but not “everything.” Time stands still for no-one, and this year the Method Madness and Margaretville Parrot Heads teams came the closest to having knowledge about “everything” It was helpful, for example, for contestants to know about AC DC’s first album, High Voltage; it was helpful to know about the highest

dam in the world and in which country and upon which river it is located; it was helpful to know the number of Provinces in Canada and how to calculate running board feet; where in the US the first Olympics were held, the calculation of amperes and volts, the difference between Hebrew and Arabic text, and last but not least the names of the horses belonging to the Lone Ranger, Robert E Lee, Roy Rogers, Ben Cartright . . . and Tonto! Y’all remember Tonto don’t you? The Trivia event also included food, a silent auction, and the opportunity to purchase mulligans for each round of competition. (Caveat: mulligans definitely help but they are not the answer). In addition to the exciting competition, the Trivia Event featured some of the contestants in costumes with 24 colorful team names such as Low Expectations, The Young and the Rest of Us, Stith Competition, Mad Hattters, and would you believe Straight Outta Context. By the way, the award for the best dressed table was given to Trophy Husbands who were all wearing top-hats and ad hoc tuxedo jackets. My personal favorite in the costume department was the Margaretville Parrot Heads. Admittedly, I was prejudiced. David Hibler and The Parrot Heads (see pictures) were from Lake Viking. All totaled, the Gallatin Rotary raised $9,300, and this classic event was a win-win

for all concerned. It was great fun with good food and a silent auction once again organized by Tim Tadlock. The Trivia Night has been a good fund raiser for the Rotarians who donate proceeds exclusively to Daviess County causes. And speaking of winning, it would be helpful to understand, for those who those are considering competing in future Trivia Extravaganzas – you really need to know a little bit about . . . everything!

A rare sighting of a juvenile Parrot Head!
