VVA Board of Directors Monthly Meeting November 13, 2022

Call to Order


Marvin McNabb reminded membership there will be 3 open seats on the Board of Directors to be voted on at the Annual Meeting in March. Members in good standing who are interested in running for election to the Board are encouraged to call the Office by Jan. 15th or email: LakeVikingCommunity@

Approval of Minutes

Doug Winter made a motion to approve the October Board minutes. Seconded by Troy Lesan; minutes were approved.


Handbook Committee

Celeste Armanees reported: No report.

Finance Committee

Doug Winters reported:

• The Finance Committee met on November 9th.

• Financial statements: We are doing well. We budgeted to lose $210,000 due to expenditures being up. However, instead of a $210,000 loss we are instead UP $249,000 which is a $500,000 swing in a positive direction. Most of that upswing comes from cost savings, and “S” lot sales.

• Late Fees: Our current Late Fee structure needs to be modified to automate these fees for our new QuickBooks software. Versus, currently must enter Late Fees manually which takes days. This change is a By-Law, so membership will vote on this at the Annual Meeting in March.

• Campground fees: Doug reported that the Campground Committee recommended instead of current 4-tier rates, we simplify to 2-tier rates (with vs. without sewer), since there is only a small $15/year difference between 30-amp & 50-amp, and soon all sites will be upgraded to 50-amp electrical. So for these 2 rates, the Finance Committee recommends a 9% cost-of-living increase, as this reflects the CPI inflation index of 9%. Doug made a motion to approve a 9% cost-of-living increase in Campground “base fee” going into next year at $604/year for sewer vs. $525/year for non-sewer. Seconded by Troy Lesan. Motion passed 5:0 as Mike Booth recused himself (due to conflict-of-interest).

• Campground’s electrical grid @ $450,000 projected cost: The 1960s electrical grid in Campground #1 and Campground #2 is failing & needs replaced. The Finance Committee has approved for VVA to loan to the Campground line item the $450,000 @ x% interest, which will be repaid/reimbursed to VVA over the next 6 years via increased Campground fees. So Campground fees pay for this expense. This loan has 2 options: loan @ 4.7% interest which is break-even (same return as putting this $450,000 into a money market fund) vs. loan @ 6% interest. VVA membership will vote on these 2 options at a Special Meeting being called for Saturday, December 3rd at 2 p.m., so work on the project can begin ASAP. Doug made a motion that these 2 options approved by the Finance Committee now be approved by the Board, for membership’s vote @ Special Meeting. Motion was seconded by Troy Lesan; motion passed by 5:1 with Mike Booth voting against.

• Campground’s 4 overnight campsites: These campsites are available to any VVA member in good standing, however are seldom ever used. This is an under-utilized revenue stream to generate funds that would go directly to the Campground. Currently, Handbook says these 4 campsites are “first come, first served” vs. Finance Committee recommends these instead be “by reservation—call the Campground Manager.” This way, any VVA member can plan ahead for their weekend guests, having reserved a place to camp for a predetermined night or weekend. And generate funds to the Campground. Mike Booth agreed the Campground Committee will submit a Handbook rule change on this.

• Beach improvement: Sale of “S” lots will go toward this project; one S lot (S#131) remains unsold. Of 6 RFPs sent out, we received 1 bid back. Doug made a motion to approve the $11,500 bid

Strategic Planning Committee

George Eshnaur reported:

• The committee met today. The 2020 Strategic Plan will be our roadmap.

• We do need additional members--especially females, as currently the committee is 6 males. If interested, please call the Office or email:

•George motioned to add 2 new Committee members: Tom Rice, Jack Buckingham. Seconded by Doug Winter; motion passed.

Activities Committee

Celeste Armanees reported:

• The Halloween Trunk-or-Treat had 75-100 kids & parents attending this successful event.

• Celeste motioned to approve the 2023 Activities Calendar. Seconded by Allan Slavin; motion passed.

• Celeste motioned for new Activities Committee members: replace Leanne Lee with oncoming members Doug Wiltse, and Logan & Cassie Martin. Seconded by Troy Lesan; motion passed.

Building Committee

Allan Slavin reported:

We met a couple times in October. In the past month, the committee has reviewed & approved 19 Building Permits—including 3 for houses, 1 for a hanger, 2 for additions, and 10 for shoreline work.

Fire Department

Tony Gronniger (Fire Chief) reported: The Firefighters’ Chili Cook-Off was held November 5th attended by 80-100

Lake Viking’s Roger Barker Receives Prestigious Award

During the Missouri Rural Water Association (MRWA) Fall Operations & Maintenance Symposium, held at Lodge of Four Seasons/Lake of the Ozarks, on October 27, 2022, Howard Baker, Executive Director for the MRWA, presented the rare and prestigious “Outstanding Service Award” to Roger Barker, Daviess County Public Water Supply District #3, Viking Valley Association. Roger started his employment with the Viking Valley Association over 40 years ago, serving most of those years as Water Superintendent.

The Outstanding Service Award is selected by nomination only. The nominee shall be an individual that has made contributions above and beyond, and whose achievements have benefited the Missouri Rural Water Association.

Roger Barker has donated time, expertise, and expense without expectation of compensation, reimbursement or return of favor. He gives and doesn’t expect anything back. He leads by example and does not shy away from a tough challenge. Roger has worked tirelessly to increase his knowledge over the years and now takes time to encourage his colleagues to join in on his journey, since he recognizes the benefit of shared knowledge. He exemplifies the intangibles found in the fabric of a true leader: caring, respect, humility, commitment, dedication, humor (and it’s dry sometimes, but it’s there), honesty, integrity, empathy, and transparency. Yes, that this is a lot of adjectives, but they are very deserving.

He brings a considered and thoughtful approach to leadership and a willingness to learn. He takes the time to listen, (and he truly does listen). He makes sure that all voices in the conversation are heard and makes a thoughtful and inclusive decision. He is willing to take the initiative when asked and does so with gusto and determination. He has established a renewed and reinvigorated spirit of cooperation and collaboration over his 40+ year tenure, as a natural leader.

Roger provides an exceptional level of service to investigate water issues not only for his system but also for others. He has the confidence to act and the persistence to keep working through issues until a resolution is found. Simply put, Roger can run his water facility and is willing to step in and help run others if needed, often going unnoticed in the process.

Roger’s knack for seeing a need and stepping in to help extends well beyond his home department. For example, lake residents struggling to locate excess water usage, he jumps in to collaborate with the residents to find and fix the problem. His assistance has even included a trip to town to purchase the parts with a return to the home for installation.

He has an open-door policy with time for everyone and a work week that extends far beyond normal hours. He develops relationships with everyone he interacts with, whether in person or by phone, and he treats everyone the same; with honesty, openness, and fairness.

Roger has spent countless hours researching, developing, and working toward completion of a new Water Purification System for the Viking Valley Association. His personal investment in the project is huge, but he is quick to give credit to others when due. He has worked tirelessly with his Board of Directors, Engineers, Contractors and Coworkers to expedite this project. His expertise and intimate knowledge of water operations have allowed him to steer this collaborative effort in a manner to keep the project on track and moving forward.

Even after all these years, “normal” is not a word used to describe Roger’s day. There is no school to attend that will teach you to run Daviess County PWSD #3 or how to deal with the wide array of issues that crop up on any given day. Roger juggles everything while remaining calm, cool and professional. His interactions with customers, attorneys, elected officials, staff or myriad of others allow him to apply the professional skills he has acquired on every “normal” day, for many years. A true local hero, going often unnoticed while going about the business of “saving the day” for so many others by taking on the following roles: Dig Rite Expert; Small Animal Trapper (Coon, Beaver, Squirrel); Pest Control Technician; Carpenter; Electrician; Mechanic; Heavy Machinery Operator; Professional Shovel Houdini; IT Guru.

Roger is the only remaining original employee of Lake Viking Association. He has been in the industry for 40+ years, has worked alongside MRWA for over 18 years, and is currently the Region 1 Director for the Missouri Rural Water Association.

ery year is a little different. Last year there was a lot of chili but only a few desserts. This year there were 10 entries in the dessert department . . . and it was all good. Thinking of everything as they always do, the Activities Committee even had a huge plate of hot dogs for “chili-dogs.” Prizes were given to first and

second place winners in each category with votes registered by dropping money into jars in front of the respective offerings. First and second place winners were as follows: Chili –Amanda Dirks and Gary Buck; desserts - Melissa Goehring and Kathy Buck; Soup – Resa Wiltse and Dianne Thomas. As always, the Activities Committee was on hand to serve and clean-up! Proceeds raised by the event were over $1,200.

A good crowd for Lake Viking’s Fire Department Chili Cook-Off.

PWSD #3 Open Meeting: October 18, 2022


Kyle Parkhurst, President (2023), called the meeting to order at 4:00pm which was held at the water plant. Members in attendance were Jeffrey Speaker (2025), Harlan Horst (2023), Heather Lund (2024), and Mark Closterman (2024). Also in attendance were Roger Barker, Water Superintendent, Gary King, Operator, and Diane Hulett, Clerk.


Heather Lund moved to approve the minutes of the September 20, 2022 Board Meeting. Jeffrey Speaker seconded. All members were in favor; motion carried.


There was no public comment.


Roger updated the board on the status of the water plant. Yard piping is in and the interior plumbing for the filter units is mostly done with the tentative startup date to test the units scheduled for the week of November 14th. Progress is being made on the interior walls/rooms and some preliminary electrical work has been completed. Delivery of the variable frequency drives for the raw water pumps has been delayed until March 2023 so other options are being researched.

Roger reported that the water line extension for Goose Court is still on hold. Decker Construction has been scheduled for the third week in November, dependent on whether the corrected easement is received before then.

Preliminary information for the uniform policy was presented. A final draft on the new policy will be presented at the next meeting.


Financial Report:

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

Current market rates on CDs were discussed. Harlan Horst made a motion for Diane to invest $40,000 from the Investment Account at the best rate with the shortest term after gathering local rate/term information. Jeffrey Speaker seconded. All voted in favor; motion carried.


Superintendent Report:

Roger reported that he, Gary and Travis attended the Safety Fair held in St. Joseph last week. Roger also noted that he will be attending the MRWA Fall Conference next week.

A motion was made by Mark Closterman and seconded by Harlan Horst for the board to enter closed session. Roll call votes were: Kyle Parkhurst-yes, Jeffrey Speaker-yes, Harlan Horst-yes, Heather Lund-yes, Mark Closterman-yes. The motion was approved and the board entered closed session at 5:15pm. At 7:00 pm, the board returned to regular session.

Kyle Parkhurst, President, announced the next meeting would be November 22, 2022 at the water plant. The meeting was adjourned at 7:10pm.

people, and generated $1,200 donations for the Fire Department. We wish to thank the Activities Committee—they did a stellar job setting up the event, and we couldn’t do this without all their planning & hard work. So many, many thanks to all!

Campground Committee

Mike Booth reported:

• The committee met with Farmers’ Electric regarding their part of the electrical upgrade.

• Mike motioned to add Randall Davidson to the committee. Seconded by George Eshnaur; motion passed.

Lake Committee

Troy Lesan reported:

The Committee is finished for the season w/ inspections on the water, and will be starting inspections from the road. As always, the biggest issue with roadside inspections will be the display of lot # and 911 addresses. Members are advised to review rules for posting these numbers on pg. 39 of the ‘22 VVA Handbook.

Infraction/Safety Committee

Mike Booth reported: No report.

Dredge Committee

Shawn Hepinstall (Chair) reported:

• The committee met on Nov. 9th.

• Beach berms: Committee members Dave Daniels and Bret Bush will be project leads for berms.

• Outsource dredging: Shawn handed out info packets RE: bids from Dredge America and Selby Construction for upcoming dredge work. With Dredge America expanding their inventory of equipment to include specialty dredging, and the “broken” down-time of our dredge becoming more expensive, and demands on our Maintenance staff that prevent them from doing other Maintenance tasks, Shawn suggested that VVA, on a one-year trial basis, outsource & hire Dredge America to dredge the South End + hire Selby Construction to do clean-out of silt basin ponds 1 & 2. The cost of $480,000 and $80,000 respectively will not be additional expense—instead, this money is already in the budget line items for dredging, dredge fuel and dredge accrual. Our Dredge Committee also reached out to MacGruder Dredging as a 3rd company to bid, but they only provided a verbal bid. Doug Winter made a motion for the Board to authorize these expenditures using existing funds to hire Dredge America, and Selby. Seconded by George Eshnaur; motion passed.

Restaurant Committee

Robert Walton (Chair) reported:

In order to determine feasibility/logistics IF decide we want a restaurant: We’d use a business model used at other lakes of constructing the building, then leasing it out to a restaurant operator. Toward that end, the committee has met with Doug Winter, and has spoken with contractors RE: grading work required, and has staked out boundary lines of the restaurant lot. Committee has also received business inquiries from several restaurant operators, and has reached out to building contractors for estimates. As the committee continues to investigate the feasibility of a restaurant at Lake Viking, it has established an email address: for additional inquiries.

Technology Committee

Jeff Ferguson (Managing Director) reported:

We’d like to find more members w/ an interest in IT & social media to serve on this committee. For more information, please call the Office or email:


Jeff Ferguson reported:

• Our Office has transitioned from QuickBooks Desktop to QuickBooks Online which will tie into the new “Condo” app. The Condo app will streamline communication with members, invoicing, etc. with a go-live date of Jan. 3rd.

• Our Office now has a check reader machine @ no cost, complements of BTC Bank. This will result in fewer trips to town.

• Safety has hired additional staff: we welcome Jessica Conrad to the team.

• The lake level is currently down over a foot. Maintenance staff have been cleaning up dead trees around the lake. Campgrounds have been winterized. And a new tube is going in at Pilot & Pirate.


Doug Winter made a motion that the Financial Statements be approved as presented. Seconded by Troy Lesan; motion passed.


No guests had requested time on the agenda.


As per our By-Laws, Board Pres. Marvin McNabb called a Special Meeting, to be held Saturday, December 3 @ 2pm at the Clubhouse: VVA membership will vote on Campground Infrastructure Funding. If approved, work would begin soon thereafter.


With no further business, Allan Slavin moved to adjourn the meeting at 3:16pm. George Eshnaur seconded; motion passed.

Randy L. Ott 1961-2022

Randy Lee Ott, 61, of Winston, Missouri, passed away at his home on November 8, 2022.

Randy was born on August 4, 1961, to Maynard and Myrna (Penta) Ott in Spencer, Iowa.

Randy had a love for the automotive industry and began his career in his early teenage years, making a living as a service manager.

Randy loved his family and the time spent together making lasting memories. He had a contagious laugh, and his stories were always entertaining and memorable. Randy was an avid outdoorsman. On most nice evenings, you could find him cruising around Lake Vi-

king on his boat, or wetting a line in his pond, or mowing grass on his John Deere.

Randy loved to hunt, and would always look forward to opening day so he could chase the big one. He enjoyed golfing any chance he got, especially playing in the Cameron Elks Tournament. Randy was a Kansas City Chiefs fanatic. He loved to cheer for, talk about, and wear his Chiefs gear. Whether it be watching the Chiefs, golfing, hunting, fishing, or boating, Randy wanted to do it with friends and family that he loved. He always wanted to make sure everyone around him was having fun, and he always did just that.

He is preceded in death by his parents; wife, Teresa Ott; brother, Frank Sgambato; step-father, Raymond “Ike” Lynn; and dear friend, Terry Shank.

Randy is survived by his wife Suzanna, of the home; daughter, Kaley (Wade) Dixon, Jamesport, Missouri; step-children, Hannah (Marshall) Briner and Jon Hughes, Chillicothe, Missouri; grandchildren; Nash, Jag, and Cora Dixon, Madisyn, Marley, and Milo Briner, and McKenzie Hughes; siblings, Glenn Ott, Chillicothe, Missouri, Denise Everman (Johnnie Willits) Weatherby, Missouri, Shane Ott, Kansas City, Missouri; nieces and nephews, Harmony Sgambato, Ashley Moore, Heather Kennedy, Steven Sgambato, Caleb Ott, Melissa Jochem, Trevor Ott, Nicole Everman, and Dillon Ott; step-mother, Shirley Ott.

Randy’s joyful and entertaining personality, his famous one-liners, and infectious laugh will be missed by all who loved him.

Memorial contributions are suggested for a memorial bench and tree at the Lake Viking Yacht Club in care of the funeral home.

Pictures by Troy Lesan & Marge Locker Beautiful Fall weather helped as Halloween was once again celebrated in a big way by Campground 1 with an event on October 22, and the Activities Committee with “Trunk or Treat” in the Association Parking lot on October 29. Here are pictures from both events: Holy Cow! Look at these costumes! The trunks of cars yield plenty of treats The kids are out in force for Halloween at Campground 1. . . . and a few adults as well. Even the dog has a costume Would you believe? Members of this group are all grandkids and great grandkids of Flint & Mary Hibler Pumpkin decorating was just one of many fun activities!
