Annual Meeting Gives Shad Mort a Royal Send-off By Troy D. Lesan

It’s Sunday March 6 @ 2PM: As VVA Board Treasurer, I’m feeling pretty good about the upcoming Dredge Committee and Finance Committee Presentations at the Annual Meeting. Both will project a positive picture. At year-end 2021, the VVA Financial Summary Sheet shows $2,000,000 in reserves – even after the expense of $377,000 on the new silt basin construction, and a totally upgraded Safety Boat fleet – with no debt! Yep, feelin pretty good, but then, in the recognition ceremony for Shad Mort, who is changing roles after 17 years as Lake Manager, Board Member Mark Leggett drops a “bombshell.” In one fell swoop, he stealthily extracts a small black bag and announces that the VVA is awarding Shad with a new Rolex! A Rolex! Suddenly, I’m freaking out. Shad has been a great Lake Manager, a Rock of Gibraltar for the past 17 years – but a Rolex? Those things are very expensive! I’ve seen em listed for $50,000, $100,000 and even higher! What about our budget? Our budget – that Paula Hepinstall and staff worked so hard on and rewrote again and again, until they had it right. Then, Leggett, in a moment of reassuring clarity, goes full disclosure. The Rolex is a fake. He got it from a guy who met a guy behind a Greyhound Bus Station who rolled up his sleeve to reveal an arm loaded with bright shiny watches. We all know that guy. We’ve all met him at some point in our lives. Turns out that the glittering Rolex he offers us was purchased at a nice discount ($19.99 I bet), but it doesn’t tell the correct time. The hands are frozen and can’t move forward. Oh well, that’s OK, I’m thinking. Technology being what it is, most of us look at our Smart Phones for the time. My acute paranoia subsides. The budget is safe for the moment.

I digress. So Shad is then presented with a beautifully crafted wallsized, polished steel map of Lake Viking made by Billy Hunter, the VVA Continued on page 5

VVA Annual Meeting of Members Call to Order President, Tony Gronniger convened the meeting at 2:00 p.m. Troy Lesan led in prayer. Lake Manager, Shad Mort led the Pledge of Allegiance. Introduction of Board Members Tony Gronniger, President, introduced the current Board members who were all present: 1st Vice President is Mark Leggett, 2nd Vice President is Mike Booth, Secretary is Celeste Armanees, Asst. Secretary is Allan Slavin, Treasurer is Troy Lesan, and Asst. Treasurer is Marvin McNabb. President’s Opening Statement Tony Gronniger summarized the past year’s accomplishments by the Board & Committees: I would like to take a few moments to highlight the progress the Association has made this past

year. This year has truly been transformational. We will, with your approval, complete the 5-year Financial Plan this afternoon. As our current Lake Manager Shad Mort’s contract expires this month, the Board of Directors has created a new “Future State” (staff re-org) initiative. This management model change features 2 new positions--we hired a Managing Director, and a Maintenance Supervisor. I want to personally thank Shad Mort for his service and direction as Lake Manager for the past 17 years, and welcome our new Managing Director, Cathy Poindexter, as well as our new Maintenance Supervisor, Billy Hunter. This past year we were able to chip and seal 6.1 miles of road at the lake, with a target of 7 miles this year. We have replaced 2 road tubes, and are evaluating the condition of the rest of the road system for further needed repairs. This year we have also outsourced our bookkeeping & tax prep services to Westbrook Ac-

March 6, 2022 counting. This much needed upgrade has modernized our previous system, since it was no longer tech-supported. We have also been in the process of upgrading our IT systems— including data sharing between the Office and Safety, WiFi in the Clubhouse, pool and Office. Regarding community safety, this past year we placed into service a new Safety Dept. boat & jet ski. We also are enhancing our communications by purchasing 4 new radios--to be installed in the Safety vehicles, Safety boat, as well as the Fire Dept tanker. The Fire Dept also purchased a new four-gas-monitor to better detect carbon monoxide & other dangerous gases. And we purchased 2 new First Responder medical bags, and 2 oxygen bags with regulators. After a comprehensive review of the Campground amenities, a new management plan was put into effect including new camping Continued on page 3

fees, and we hired a seasonal part-time Campground Manager. The Board, after review, has also retained new legal counsel for the Association. In other areas, Lake Viking continues to grow & our membership continues to invest and develop. The Building Committee issued 176 Building Permits over the past year--14 of which were new homes. The south-end dredge continues, and Shawn will update us on that. The Association has also purchased the “Lake Viking News” newspaper. Gallatin Publishing closed its doors this past year. With no other publisher purchasing the business, the Board decided that VVA would purchase the LV News. This is a new endeavor for the Association, but the Board felt retaining the paper was imperative as a major source of communication with our members. I want to close in thanking the Board of Directors, also the 100+ core volunteers who generously give their time & talent to VVA, and the staff new and old for their dedication & service to this remarkable community.

Award of Excellence” to Mark Leggett. Mark has served on the Board of Directors for 13 years, including as Board President. Over the past 20 years, he has personally recruited many, many volunteers to the benefit of Lake Viking, whether as candidates for the Board of Directors, or on countless committees. Mark Leggett recognized outgoing Lake Manager, Shad Mort. Mark went on to say when the Lake Manager position became available 17 years ago, the Board of Directors was looking for an individual to fill a position who could work for 7 bosses (the Board of Directors) & had expertise in dredge operations, roads, and general operations of the lake. It was at that time the Board realized they had a hard-working, dedicated, Desert Storm Veteran on-staff w/ expertise in operating heavy equipment. It was then that Shad Mort was selected to be the new Lake Manager for VVA. Shad has been with the Association for 20+ years, including the last 17 years as Lake Manager. Shad Mort is the longest-standing Lake Manager for VVA. Mark thanked Shad for his hard work, compassion, and dedication to Lake Viking.

Orders of the Day President, Tony Gronniger asked for a motion to approve the agenda as the “Orders of the Day.” Robert Patch, lot 1249, moved to accept the Orders of the Day. Sue Morris, lot 332, seconded; motion carried.

Dredge Report Shawn Hepinstall thanked the members for their financial support to build the dredge silt basins, as well as the Dredge Committee & Board of Directors for their support. Shawn reported that the construction of the south-end silt basin is almost complete & the lake has NOT incurred any additional debt in the process, as this project has been funded with money collected 2 years ago from our onetime dredge assessment. This last year the entire south end has been cleaned out & reconditioned. A new silt system consisting of 4 silt basins has been constructed over approximately 15 acres. This filtering system will remove silt as it moves from one basin to the next. By the time the water leaves the fourth basin, it will be clean when entering back into the lake. Shawn said they have been digging in the area just south of the Yacht Club, so they can get the dredge into that area. Concrete drains will be installed in those 4 basins this spring, since they ran out of warm weather last year. Shawn said they have inventoried equipment, purchased additional pipe and floats. The dredge is in the water & was serviced last fall, so it is ready to go this spring. Last year they cleaned out 5 creek areas—including the Three-Tubes area, the Garney area, and the Pilot & Pirate area. In 2022 the main focus will be dredging in the south-end area, and streambank stabilization.

Approval of Minutes Tony Gronniger asked for a motion to approve the minutes from the 2021 Annual Meeting. Matt McCubbin, lot 50, moved to approve the minutes of the 2021 Annual Meeting. Sue Morris, lot 332, seconded; motion carried. Committee Reports Committee reports presented today will be from the Dredge Committee and the Finance Committee.

All members were in favor; motion carried. PUBLIC COMMENT There was no public comment. OLD BUSINESS Jim Rinner and Geoff Tavelli informed the board that Bartlett & West is still waiting on final approval of the design from DNR. The engineers have provided all additional information requested by DNR at this time. NEW BUSINESS Financial Report: The financial reports and bills were reviewed and discussed. Jeffrey Speaker moved to approve the January financial reports as submitted and approve the bills and transfers. Troy Lesan seconded. All members voted to approve; motion carried.

ried. Preliminary figures for the second Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) contract were submitted by Bartlett & West which showed an increase of $224,632.00. Line items were discussed in detail to determine possible ways to trim costs. Revised figures will be submitted as soon as possible in the event final approval is received from DNR allowing the GMP#2 contract to be signed. DISCUSSION Superintendent Report: Roger reported that the new truck was delivered. He also informed the board that DNR recently visited the plant to test manganese levels after a concern was submitted to the agency regarding black buildup on faucets. The district had previously reported information in the Lake Viking News on manganese test results taken at three locations, all of which were below normal levels, after two owners had contacted the district about this issue. A Sunshine Law request provided the address of the concerned party, along with the full report from DNR, which indicated manganese test results from samples taken by the agency were in line with those previously reported by the district. All test results have been well below the recommended levels. A motion was made by Troy Lesan and seconded by Jeffrey Speaker for the board to enter executive session. Roll call votes were: Kyle Parkhurst-yes, Jeffrey Speaker-yes, Heather Lund-yes, Troy Lesanyes. The motion was approved and the board entered closed session at 5:30pm. At 6:30pm, the board returned to regular session. Kyle Parkhurst, President, announced the next meeting would be February 15, 2022 at the water plant. The meeting was adjourned at 6:40p.m.

Respectfully Submitted, Jeffrey Speaker

Annual Meeting Send-off Manager of Maintenance. It’s a true work of art, and Shad was appreciative. The Annual Meeting was Shad’s last official act as Lake Manager. He also thanked Sally Zerbe who had retired from the office, earlier in 2021, after many years of service. When I think of Shad I visualize the last 17 years (which all went by like a flash) when Shad and staff plowed snow on week-ends (it seems snow always comes on week-ends). Or after those all too common five inch rains, when he was out on the high water (which also seems to come on week-ends) with the crew on the old work-boat. Our very reliable and versatile Maintenance Crew often spent a full day or more, pulling in all of the drift and huge logs and tree-stumps that had washed into the lake from all corners in our 9200 acre watershed. Shad was a hands-on guy; you might have seen him running an excavator, a dump truck, endlessly bird-dogging tax-sale lots at the Courthouse, or going up and down the steep bank on the dam’s backside on a mower. Thanks for everything Shad. It’s been a good ride. Back to the Agenda: there is an opinion, a critique if you will, that the VVA Meetings are staged events, but hey, I don’t mind. I remember the old days, when some meetings were long drawn-out affairs fraught with contention and mayhem and lasting till way past dark. I prefer the “staged events,” because when we have all our ducks in a row with Town Halls in advance, the shorter meetings are much more tolerable. The Annual Meeting also spent time recognizing members. Example: Mark Leggett is stepping off the Board after thirteen years. Most of us who have served for even a single term on the Board or have regularly attended monthly meetings are astounded at the thought of the 156 meetings Mark has participated in as a Board Member. The Lake won’t be the same without him, fake Rolexes and all. He and Missy and their group’s Church auctions under the big tent were a totally awesome sight to behold. Also recognized was Paula Hepinstall for her work as a VOLUNTEER on the Dredge and Finance Committees. Paula has vast sets and subsets of numbers dancing around in her

head from budget line items, retained earnings calculations, profit and loss statements, and journal entries for Dredge Fuel usage – and her number crunching skills have been of invaluable assistance to the Office Staff during this past year of massive transition. Dennis Schlaiss, who has been a VOLUNTEER fireman forever and also pitches in at almost every Activities Committee event, and will even play his guitar if asked, was also recognized. Earlier I mentioned the advantage of shorter meetings, but if there was one part of the agenda that we could justifiably expand, it would be more recognition of our members. Times are changing fast; faster than ever, but the Lake’s future will always be reliant on the bedrock of our informed and engaged membership, whom we sometimes don’t take enough time to recognize. It really was a unique Annual Meeting, and thanks to a supportive membership, a very good one.

VVA Annual Meeting


Continued from page 3

tinue having a Town Hall each year for members to ask more detailed questions. There were questions today at the Annual Meeting mostly pertaining to the dredge. John said the lake is doing great, and is in a good position financially. The 5-Year Plan has worked & given us an excess of $1 million. John said last year at the Annual Meeting they discussed the increased amount of income taken in during the 2020 fiscal year and that it would be spent in 2021 for the construction of the silt basin. John reported the 2021 fiscal year had a projected deficit of almost $300,000 but we finished roughly $62,000 in the black because of good management by Shad and the Finance Committee. John said they are projecting a deficit again this year, but keep in mind we will be spending the money collected 2 years ago to be spent on construction of the silt basin. John said this will be another transition year, due to the Association upgrading software, is still transitioning to the new accounting company, and finishing the dredge project. John said the new Safety boat & jet ski, and the dredge are paid for. The lake does not have any debt. John said the funds collected and allocated for capital projects are kept on a retained earnings schedule and used (“retained”) strictly for projects they were collected for. John said we are in the 5th year of the five-year plan and he would strongly encourage members to vote for the final year. This 4% increase will be equally split between operating expenses & the account for long-term stabilization. With that being said, John Kmetz made a motion to approve the Annual Budget & the 5-Year Plan. Tom Johanson, lot 240, seconded; motion passed.

Board Mark Leggett announced there are two Board positions to fill. The candidates running for the Board are: Tony Gronniger, George Eshnaur, Matt Hibler, and Doug Winter. Mark asked for nominations from the floor. No nominations were made. Hearing none, Tony Gronniger seconded; motion passed.

Vote for new Board Members: 2 open positions Tony Gronniger announced the next item on the agenda is voting on Board Members. Since Tony is on the ballot, 1st Vice-President of the

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 forty-five(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.

AFFORDABLE DISPOSAL 2022 HOLIDAY TRASH SCHEDULE Memorial Day – Monday, May 30th – Pick-up Tuesday, May 31st 4th of July – Monday, July 4th – Pick-up Tuesday, July 5th Labor Day – Monday, Sept. 5th – Pick-up Tuesday, Sept. 6th ANY and ALL other holidays will have normal Monday trash pick-up.

Introduction of Candidates Mark Leggett introduced the Floor Counters: Doug Wiltse, Mark Closterman, and Jim Miller; then he explained the voting process. Mark Leggett next introduced the Ballot Counters: Sally Black and Rhonda Lambert. Mark announced the candidates will each have 5 minutes to speak. He then called for candidate nominations from the floor. With no nominations, the floor nominations were closed. Candidates are: 1. 2. 3. 4.

Proposed By-Law Changes Celeste Armanees presented the following four proposed changes, which were submitted by a VVA Committee, the Board, or Safety Dept. Jason McTheeney of Safety answered questions on his team’s two suggested changes.

forcement”, Section 4 “Infraction”, add as 3rd paragraph: CURRENT: … PROPOSED: 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. (rev 3/22)” 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 “no-show” 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. 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: ADD: “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. (rev 3/22)” 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. 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 7 “Notice”: CURRENT: Notice: 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 three-day (3) notice in writing. PROPOSED: “Notice: … seven (7) days notice to the member … unless such person or member shall waive … the seven-day (7) notice

Pg. 15 By-Law: under Article XIV “En-


in writing. (rev 3/22)” Reason (as per Safety Dept to be more fair to members): Handbook pg. 15 allows the Safety Dept. to write infractions up to 3 days before an Infraction Meeting. But on the same page, 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. Vote results: By-Law Changes • Pg. 8 Article IV, Section 8 “Non-Payment Penalties” -- 78 yes; 0 no •Pg. 10 Article VII “Board of Directors”, Section 6 “Manner of Acting” -- 82 yes; 0 no •Pg. 15 Article XIV “Enforcement”, Section 4 “Infraction” -- 78 yes; 0 no •Pg. 15 Article XIV “Enforcement”, Section 7 “Notice” -- 76 yes; 0 no … ALL BY-LAW CHANGES PASSED Vote results: Election to Board Mark Leggett announced the top 2 candidates: Tony Gronniger and Doug Winter have been elected for a 3-year term. Adjournment Don Leeper, lot 22, moved to adjourn the meeting. Robert Patch, lot 1249, seconded; motion passed. The Board of Directors will meet in Executive Session for committee assignments.

2022 Wine and Cheese Night A nice turnout of over 100 showed up on March 12, for the first Activities Committee Event on the 2022 calendar. The Wine and Cheese Night featured different bottles of wine with the labels concealed in brown wrapping paper. The participants tasted the different bottles then voted on favorites. Don’t ask me which wine got the most votes. I don’t know. I’m a party pooper. I always arrive early and leave early, because I really don’t want to drink too much wine. I also wanted to be sure and set the clocks an hour forward for Daylight Savings. As always, there were plenty of Activities Committee Members present to help make the evening another successful Lake Viking social event.

The Wine Tasting event featured a generous sampling to taste from. [Photo by Troy Lesan]
