VVA Board of Directors Monthly Meeting May 19, 2024

Call to Order

Doug Winter, Lot 46, called the meeting to order, held in the upper level of the Clubhouse, at 11:00 am. Board members present were: Robert Walton, Lot 217, Jeremy Lillig, Lot 3041, Michelle Sullivan, Lot 1826 and Terry Nibarger, Lot 657. Jeremy Lillig led in prayer. Jeff Ferguson, Lake Manager, led the Pledge of Allegiance. Doug Winter, Board President, read the mission statement of Lake Viking.

Approval of Minutes

A motion was made by Robert Walton and was seconded by Terry Nibarger to approve the minutes of the April 2024 regular board meeting. The April 2024 minutes were approved unanimously.


Handbook Committee

Michelle Sullivan explained the committee’s purpose of reviewing the Handbook and compiling changes in conjunction with the Associations Annual meeting in October of each year. She discussed the need for a more formal review and approval process for handbook changes. The new process for submitting Handbook changes will be submitted to Michelle also stressed these changes need to be presented in a regular board meeting and approval or denial of the change captured in the minutes so the Handbook can be updated. Michelle Sullivan will be the liaison for the Handbook Committee going forward. One Handbook revision was presented for approval. The changes are to Campground Rules & Regulations:

• Campground Rules & Regulations - New Section Added and these Changes also shown on Back inside cover of the Handbook under Campground Fees.

• Reason for Change/Addition To allow for additional full hook up camp space availability for temporary weekend campers

• Proposed Handbook Language: Weekend Temporary Camping Spots: Temporary overnight or weekend spaces are available on a first-come-first serve basis at $25.00 per day. Full hookup spots may be available depending on capacity of the campground for $40.00 per day. If you request a specific spot there will be an additional $10.00 reservation fee. All fees are to be paid in advance on the Condo Control App. 4/2024

A motion was made to approve the handbook changes was made by Michelle Sullivan and was seconded by Jeremy Lillig. Motion passed unanimously. Michelle stated the handbook will be finalized this week and will be updated online.

Inserts of updates to the handbook will be available in the VVA Office.

A question was asked by one of the attendees if a friend of a lot owner can come up and camp if they do not own a lot? The answer was no, they must own a lot.

Finance Committee

• Jeremy Lillig reported that the committee met on May 9, 2024 by Zoom.

• Committee Chair Paula Hepinstall stated our Financials look good and the collections of 2024 dues are at 73%.

• Morgan Stanley Update Terry Nibarger reported that markets were down for April 2024 which reflected the value of the account down by $28k. Even with this downturn, the fund is up over $41k for the year. A strong rebound of the market the first week of May 2024 and the movement of some funds into a growth portfolio has already resulted in the fund recapturing most of April’s decline in value.

• 2023 Full Year Audit UHY audit of 2023 will resume now that the tax season is over.

• Special Budget Meeting Budget passed and has been entered into Quickbooks. Dues and Assessment billing is underway through email and Condo Control with interface between Condo and Quickbooks being implemented.

• Jetty Project Work was resumed in April with significant progress. Sod was also placed in the area below the clubhouse.

• Sale of Lake owned Lots Two (2) lots were sold in April 2024 for $4,000. YTD sales total $90,000.

• Sale of Lot 717 The $230,000 sale of this lot is contingent on a septic field test and has not closed. Field test is satisfactory. VVA is waiting on final paperwork from the DNR. Reminder of amenities approved by the members at the

Special Meeting from May 2023 as reflected in the minutes may result in other money from this sale used for additional membership amenities once final cost for capital gains tax comes in.

• Campground Septic When this project is complete, attention will be directed to additional Electrical Update.

• Clubhouse Septic Update Accepted Bird Septic bid of $87,000. Work is currently ongoing.

• Beautification Committee Revenue vs. Expenses of the committee were reviewed. The Committee held a successful Spring Fest on April 27 and intends on using the funds generated for physical improvements of Lake Property.

• Lake Director Report Lake Manager Jeff Ferguson reported the dredge had moved to a second location at 3 Tubes Cove. He also touched on the significant amount of time and labor spent repositioning dredge pipes. Journal entries for dredging were reviewed for proper classification on the expense ledger.

• Farm Programs Steve Danner continues discussions with the USDA for Community Development and Soil and Dredging assistance as a possibility. Steve reminded the group that VVA HOA status as well as median income of membership will not allow for many of the grants.

• Mastercard/Visa Settlement A reminder was given of the May 31, 2024 cutoff date for this process.

• Other Business Jeff was asked if the VVA would incur expense for the purchase of new Buoys since many are tipped and on their sides. He replied that maintenance is scheduled to reset the buoys on the lake.

A Dynasty in the making?

Luke Leslie is pictured with this beautiful 7 pound bass he recently caught. If the Leslie name sounds familiar it might be because a picture of Luke’s grandfather was featured in last month’s Lake Viking News with a big fish he had caught . . . and if that isn’t enough, last year Luke’s father Brandon was pictured with a seven pounder he had reeled in at a Lake Viking Fishing Tournament. Lucky seven seems to be a good number.

A familiar Sign:
Lake was closed 3 times in the past month due to high water. The rule of thumb has always been that there will be closure whenever water is more than a foot above the spillway. As evidenced by these pictures, water this high brings in a lot of drift and gets into yards which is a problem when there is wake from boats on the water. As always, thanks to staff for going out and pulling in drift. “When electrical power is supplied to boat docks, all electrical installations must comply with Article 553 (residential docks) or Article 555 (commercial docks) of the 2011 National Electrical Code, which mandates a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI or GFI) on all docks. A GFI is a major safety device to protect swimmers around your dock (rev 12/2020)” from 2023 VVA Handbook, Page 24 It’s Shocking CHECK YOUR ELECTRIC!

Kyle Parkhurst, President (2026), called the meeting to order at 4:00pm which was held at the water plant. Members in attendance were Harlan Horst (2026), Mike Lammers (2025), Mark Closterman (2024), and Gary Buck (2024). Also in attendance were Zack Morrison, Water Superintendent, Diane Hulett, Clerk, and Kenney Hales, CPA.

There was no public comment.


Zack reported that the 30-day trial period for the permanganate feed was going well. He also informed the board that Bartlett & West had submitted preliminary cost figures for the addition of the permanganate and granular activated carbon units shortly before the board meeting. Since Zack did not have time to speak with the engineer about the estimate, he will present figures at the next meeting.

NOTICE for PWSD#3 Metered Customers

The annual Primacy Fee will be included on your May bill which will be due on 6/20/24. The water district is required to collect this fee on behalf of DNR to help offset the cost of water sampling and lab fees.

If you are paying by Online Bill Pay through your own bank, be sure to adjust the amount of your payment to include this fee.


Financial Report:

The financial reports and bills were reviewed and discussed. Mike Lammers moved to approve the February financial reports as submitted and approve the bills and transfers. Mark Closterman seconded. All members voted to approve; motion carried.

Kenney Hales, CPA, was in attendance to go over the 2023 Audit and answer any questions. A motion was made by Harlan Horst and seconded by Mark Closterman to accept the audit. All voted to approve; motion carried.

Diane informed the board that the health insurance renewal with MO Chamber Federation, effective 6/1/24, will have an 8.9% increase. No changes were made to the plan.

Reinvestment of the $160,000 CD that is due to mature at the end of the month was discussed. Gary Buck made a motion to invest the funds into one $80,000 and two $40,000 CDs with Putnam County State Bank at a rate of 5.0% and a term of 13months for all three. Mike Lammers seconded. All members voted in favor; motion approved.


Superintendent Report:

Zack informed the board that the latest quarterly THM sample results were good. He also reported that work is progressing on the Lead/Copper Inventory required by the Department of Natural Resources but mentioned that several homes will need to be inspected to determine the type of water line installed. Zack also provided information that Gary acquired at the MRWA Spring Conference pertaining to per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). He shared that at some point in the future, testing will be required for PFAS, and the best way to remove these substances is through GAC filtration. Zack noted this was good news since the district is already in the process of adding back the GAC units to the treatment process.

Kyle Parkhurst, President, announced the next meeting would be April 23, 2024, at the water plant. The meeting was adjourned at 5:45pm.

Respectfully Submitted, Mark Closterman

Kyle expressed his concerns as he was billed the additional Lake Dues on Lot 524. He had been working with the VVA Office to resolve this and it has not been resolved. Doug Winter let Mr. Parkhurst know that his concern was discussed in the Think Tank meeting, but a decision could not be made there. The Board unanimously voted to refund the second member dues amount to Mr. Parkhurst.

Marine Pest Control Mike and John Eckers

The company supplied a Certificate of Liability Insurance Certificate to the Board for our records.

Mike Eckers discussed their Pest Control Services and how they work.

Marine Pest Control has purchased a boat which will be dedicated to Lake Viking and will not be moved to other locations for services.

Marine Pest control purchased a lot to enable them to place a boat on the water to perform their services.

Mike and John fielded questions from the attendees.

Matt Urbanek Lot 454

Mr. Urbanek presented his request for an exception to be able to update and renovate his boat house to enable him to install a floor in the boathouse. He indicated the project will be professionally scoped out and will not be used as a shelter. He stated he wants to install windows that will allow air circulation and let more light into the structure.

A motion was made by Jeremy Lillig and seconded by Robert Walton to allow the exception for the boathouse renovation. The motion passed unanimously.

Board Discussion

The first item discussed by the board was allowing the Lake Director, Jeff Ferguson, to sign the papers on sale of VVA owned lake lots. Discussion was held and a motion was made by Terry Nibarger and seconded by Michelle Sullivan to allow the Lake Director to sign for the sale of VVA owned lots. All members were in favor. Motion passed. The second item discussed by the board was the need for Signage rules and regulations to offer guidance to the 17 Z Lot owners. There is no guidance or rules around signage on Z (commercial) lots currently in the handbook. The Board is tasking the Building Committee with developing rules and regulations for addition to the VVA Handbook around this issue.


A motion was made by Terry Nibarger and seconded by Jeremy Lillig to adjourn to Executive Session at 12:30 pm to discuss legal, personnel, and Board organizational matters. The motion passed unanimously.
