A motion was made by Tom Rice to change the handbook to reflect the changes related to Condo.

Tom Rice explained why the Handbook Committee decided to use “Condo Control App” instead of generic verbiage. Motion was made to pass, A Second to the motion by Allan Slavin. The motion was passed unanimously.

Finance Committee

Terry Nibarger reported: Terry reported the Finance Committee met May 18, 2023 and was led by Paula Hepinstall. The April 2023 financials were reviewed. Expenditures of $5K and over will be depreciated and will not be expensed. Per Terry, this will help us on our taxes. Morgan Stanley account for April 23 was up $6274.00. The committee has reviewed years 2018 – 2022 and evaluating what items need to be brought forward. Terry reported we will continue to set back $60K per year for an emergency war chest fund. Committee reviewed Bad Debt write off and collection procedures. Paula Hepinstall has looked into the government program for Employee Retention which came into being with the COVID pandemic. VVA did not qualify for these funds. The sale of VVA lots has exceeded the budget for 2023. Revenue from the sale of four association lots is $18,660.00. The Finance Committee is/was in favor of selling lake lot 717, which was approved at the earlier special meeting. The list of amenities that are being considered from the revenue to be raised include the following: Play ground equipment with foam pad under to reduce possibility of injuries, Repair/replace shelter houses, Pickle Ball Court, Exercise equipment in the basement of the clubhouse, Snack Bar in the basement of clubhouse, Dog Park, Jetty to accommodate 11 boats for access to snack bar or activities. Fire hydrant for Goose Court, and adding an additional $15K to the septic system repair for the clubhouse. Finance Committee was also in favor of moving the annual meeting date from the first week in March to the first week of October. (This passed in earlier special meeting.) Terry reported Campground upgrade of the electrical system part one has been completed and part two is on hold at this time. Also discussed was the remodel/redo of the clubhouse basement to accommodate a snack bar. Terry reported Beach 1 & 2 upgrades have been completed. Also reported was Jeff is working to secure USDA grant funds for Lake projects. A question was received from the members. Will there be capital gains tax on the sale of lot 717? The answer was yes, there will be.

A Busy Month!

Plenty going on around Lake Viking the past month. Since the last edition of the Lake Viking News, the Activities Committee held three events: the Spring garage sale on April 22, Cinco de Mayo at the clubhouse on May 6, and the fishing tournament on May 20. Once again, hats off to the Activities Committee for 3 great events! There was also a full slate of Committee Meetings, the monthly Board Meeting (a week late due to Mothers Day) and a Special Meeting both held on Sunday May 21. The big news from the special meeting was the date of the Annual Meeting is moved ahead from the first week in March to the first week of October. This By-Law change was an unfinished item from the March 2023 Annual Meeting and should enable more people to attend the Annual Meeting in the future. Also in May was the opening of the swimming pool, and oh yes, the dredge is in full production mode at the south end of the lake. Read more about these topics in this edition of the Lake Viking News.

Strategic Planning Committee

George Eshnaur Lot 505 reported: Meeting will be held next week. Minutes will be published after the meeting. George Eshnaur made a motion to add the following people to the Strategic Planning Committee. New members to be added are Joe Steer, Michael Crump, David Thomas and Sue Wolf. Tony Gronniger seconded the motion which passed unanimously.

The stops on the Poker Run will be Marina, Beach 2, Beach 3 and Five Pines. Many more events are planned for the rest of the year.

Building Committee

Allan Slavin Lot 181 reported: In the past month, the committee has met four times. They reviewed 22 Building Permits. Building permits and fees were reviewed and reworked. The building specs portion of the existing handbook will be revised to state that construction must meet the Missouri Building standards and regulations. The committee recommended that detached garages be changed from 720 to 960 square feet. Permit for building house will remain at $2000 but if a sea wall is installed, there will be an additional fee. Paula Hepinstall asked if pole barn construction is still restricted. Yes, it is to MH lots and S lots. Tony Gronniger asked if building fees are non-refundable. The answer was yes unless the project is not approved. Building permit extensions will be processed at the pre COVID rules. Marvin McNabb spoke about prefab housing.

VVA Special Meeting of Membership May 21, 2023

Call to Order

Board Pres. Doug Winter, lot 46, called the meeting to order, held in the upper level of the Clubhouse, at 1:00pm. Board members present were: Allan Slavin, lot 62, Terry Nibarger, lot 657, Tom Rice, Lot 343, Tony Gronniger, Lot 2281 and George Eshnaur Lot 505. Terry Nibarger led in prayer. Jeff Ferguson, Managing Lake Director, led the Pledge of Allegiance.

Items on Special Meeting Agenda

ANNUAL MEETING DATE CHANGE

Motion was brought to the board and members to change the Annual Meeting date from the 1st Sunday of March to the first Sunday of October. Positive reasons to change were discussed and included, weather is usually better in October than in March. Weather would be less likely to impact attendance at the annual meeting. Second positive reason to change the meeting date revolves around finances and budgeting. Now we are drawing on our reserve account for the first portion of the year. We will have a budget in place for January 1 of the coming years. Payment of dues for next year will remain the same as they were in 2023. For 2025, dues will need to be paid at the beginning of the year. Members will be able to pay ½ of the dues amount by January 31, 2025 and the other half of the dues by March 31, 2025. There is no penalty to members for paying with the two payment option. Motion was voted on by membership and was unanimously approved.

SALE OF WATERFRONT LOT 717

This sale is proposed to fund amenities for VVA members. The suggested selling price for the lot after improvements by VVA is $265,000. Terry Nibarger presented a list of the proposed amenities that might be funded by the sale of the lot. These include, Pickle Ball Court, Snack Bar on lower level of the Club House, new playground equipment with rubber mats under the equipment to cushion falls, repair/ rebuild shelter houses as needed, Jetty/dock for 11 boats to allow members to park their boats as they come to activities held at the clubhouse, dog park and place exercise equipment in the lower level of the clubhouse. Thomas Archibald, lot 1280, indicated he lives across from lot 717 and stated because of waterflow we might need a larger tube. Mr. Archibald indicated he does not use his second driveway. Jeff Ferguson said the board was going to talk to him about this as the improvements to the lot are done. The motion was made and seconded to sell Lot 717 after doing upgraded because of water flow after a large rain. Members present were all in favor of selling this lot.

HANDBOOK UPDATES

Tom Rice read the proposed changes to the Handbook which includes the following:

• Article IV

Anticipate what is about to happen around you. The boat you are following is about to lose the kid on their tube.

Perhaps you should not be following so closely.

Maybe it is time to choose a different path.

Give them some room.

Learn about the lake. Where are the shallow spots? Not only do you need to avoid them to protect your boat, but you need to give other boaters room to do the same.

Don’t put the squeeze on another boater and box them into a tough spot. Their response might be a waive with their fist, or a finger.

Go with the flow. We have a “directional lake”. It can save lives. It may be yours, your child’s, or your grandchild’s.

Put your head on a swivel. Enlist guidance assistance from your co-captain.

1957-2023

Jo Mason Goetz, 65, Gallatin, MO (formerly of Richardson, TX) passed away Thursday, April 6, 2023, at her home, surrounded by loved ones.

April 2023 Financial Documents

No questions on P&L line items. Paula explained that line-item 1625 – Land Improvements on the Balance Sheet is comprised of Expenditures over $5,000 and will be depreciated rather than expensed.

Morgan Stanley Investment Account Terry Nibarger reported net income up $6,274 for month.

Five Year Plan 2018-2022 Reviewed and agreed on looking at similar plan going forward to continue to build deferred maintenance accrual that resulted in $50,000 - $60,000 per year.

Bad debt write-off Collection procedures continue to be reviewed. Consensus was that delinquent accounts will be sent to collection agency after 12 months and that any collections aged over 10 years be written off to be consistent with state statutes on collections.

ERC Update Paula did extensive investigation on VVA eligibility for additional Employee Retention credits from final COVID stimulus fund distributions. Lake Viking did not meet the revenue shortfall requirement.

Sale of VVA owned lots: Lake Manager reports sale of 4 lots @ $18,660 already exceeds budget income projection.

VVA Sale of Lot 717: Contingent on membership approval, this waterfront lot will be offered by accepting sealed bids from membership starting at $275,000. Anticipated expenses on prepping the lot will be $5,500 with additional anticipated tax liability for capital gains after sale. Stated reason for sale of this lot is to finance amenities to membership. Per request from board, these are recommended in following order of priority:

1. Playground equipment with rubberized mat @ Beach #1

2. Rebuild & repair beach shelter houses.

3. Pickleball Courts

4. Exercise equipment in basement of clubhouse.

5. Snack bar in basement of clubhouse

6. Dog Park

7. Jetty with dock for 11 boats in Beach One/Restaurant area. Other recommendation is for a $5,000 threshold for line-item expense before items become capital expenditure.

Additional Unbudgeted Expenses: $6,500 for water hydrant on Goose Court. $10,000 - $15,000 in seed money for Annual Gala fundraiser with suggested date at end of summer.

Change of Annual Meeting date: If passed will result in a budgeting process beginning in July. Changes in billing process of Annual dues and assessments are recommended as follows: Due date for 2024 remains the same with 2025 and years following featuring a process for semi-annual payment of dues and assessments with first installment due on January 31 and second installment due on March 31.

Status of Campground Electrical Upgrade (per special assessment) Phase One completed. Committee agreed to Flint’s recommendation of re-evaluating in July before initiating phase 2. At present, there are 37 CG spots open mostly non-sewer with 12 of these openings in CG #2.

Campground Septic Lake Manager reported that DNR is involved in designing an irrigated system.

Clubhouse Septic Lake Manager reports an additional $15,000 in projected cost due to perk test results. More dirt will have to be brought in to achieve compliance.

Exploratory Restaurant Committee Now that expense projections have come in from Restaurant Committee at over $1,000,000, Finance Committee would like more details on expected income & ROI from this proposed expense to membership. Restaurant Committee is asked to produce Profit & Loss projections. Feasibility of restaurant facility in clubhouse basement was again mentioned by several members.

“S” Lot 131 Remains unsold. There is a prospective buyer. Recommend leaving lot @ current asking price & evaluating next month. Beach renovation from S Lot sale: Selby Construction completed berms at beach 1 and Beach 2. Beach 2-bathroom completed. Playground equipment installed at Beach 2 – ready for Memorial Day.

Other/New Business Steve Danner suggested possible advantages in working with USDA. Jeff has already started this. More next month.

Lake Committee Activity: May 16, 2023

During the past month Lake Committee members have met on several occasions for work sessions inspecting properties. On April 23 members Walton, Odette, Leeper, Lesan & Board Contact Gronniger finished roadside inspections started last month by Bo Steed. At the request of Lake Manager, Committee met on May 8 and May 10 to do a Community Area check at both roadside and shoreline. Signs were inventoried for damaged and missing signs and other appurtenances such as small docks and picnic tables were also listed. During this inspection it was also noted that several road signs were missing as well as signage on all 3 association beaches.

With roadside inspections completed, several non-compliance letters were forwarded to safety to be issued through Condo Control. Lake Committee is also coordinating on letters that went out earlier in the year from Safety on missing address and lot numbers. Association members are reminded of the June 3 deadline on those letters in regard to getting numbers posted.

In upcoming weeks, Lake Committee Members will be making shoreline inspections of properties. Association Members should be reminded that items most often noted in these inspections are shoreline areas needing more rip-rap, non-compliant silt fences at construction sites and lot numbers visible at docks

This work is being done on an hourly contract and it is important to not bother the workers as it will delay the project and increase costs. Dredge America is working 12 hour shifts seven days a week. This will include holidays. The project will take approximately 60 days to complete. Dredge America asks from VVA Members: 1. Please stay away from the dredge and the pipe. No Boating, Paddle Boating, Kayaking, Fishing, etc. in the area. 2. Dredge America will not be moving docks or dredging under docks.

Robert Walton Lot 217 reported: Mr. Walton brought the membership up to date on the status of the Restaurant project. Mr. Walton discussed the suggestion of installing a restaurant/snack bar in the lower level of the Clubhouse. He feels there are cons of the restaurant being created in the basement. A survey was sent out to VVA Lot owners to gather member input regarding their interest in a restaurant at the lake and what their preferences are as far as type of food, cost, serving alcoholic beverages etc. Mr. Walton asked that the committee be allowed to send out another survey with more specific questions to determine the level

of support VVA members are willing to give the restaurant if it is built. George Eshnaur indicated several members have stated they would dine at the restaurant, but they do not want to pay for the building of a restaurant.

Tech Committee

Jeff Ferguson, Lake Managing Director reported for Scott Fatheree Lot 3162: Midstates fiber will be working on the installation the week of May 30, 2023 to June 2, 2023.

Jeff stated that the fiber line will go to the dam and south around the lake. It will not cross the dam.

5). Safety issued 15 infractions to be heard at the upcoming June 10 infraction hearing.

Dredge Update

VVA Office Needs Your E-Mail Addresses

We have launched a new software platform called Condo Control that includes a user-friendly online app for your phone.
