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 6:30 p.m. Board Members present were: Mark Leggett, lot 72; Celeste Armanees, lot 62; Troy Lesan, lot 576; Allan Slavin, lot 181, Marvin McNabb, lot 28 and Mike Booth, lot 2380. Troy Lesan led in prayer. Shad Mort led the Pledge of Allegiance. Tony Gronniger opened the meeting with the Vision/Mission Statement: “Lake Viking is a private lake aspiring to preserve our community and environment for future generations.” “Our informed members are the strength of our community.” Approval of Minutes Mike Booth moved to approve the minutes of the June 13, 2021 Board meeting. Mark Leggett seconded; motion passed. Committee Reports: Handbook Committee – No Report Finance Committee The Finance Committee met Thursday July 8, on ZOOM with 8 members present and President Tony Gronnniger also sitting in. In reviewing Financial Statements total income is down from this time last year because last year’s Financials included the one-time dredge assess-

ment, but aside from that all other income areas were up. Shad anticipates road expenses to go up in the following month with more work being done. Shad also reported purchase of a truck for $7,800. On other Capital Expenditures Marvin gave an update on an open item from last month’s agenda. Discussion of a security fence for the maintenance yard / burn pile was tabled but Marvin is still looking at alternatives to make that area more secure. I reported on the progress on outsourcing our Financials with Westbrook Accounting. One of the first thing ,Jill Steward, our publishing consultant, did was to contact Westbrook and arrange for them to included Lake Viking News invoicing in their services. Originally Marvin and I had a target date of August for Westbrook doing our payrolls but they were able to start doing payrolls this month. A support person from Westbrook will be on our property this Wednesday to do more work with importing files. Also, discussion was held on a document I produced that listed income vs expenses for the first two months of the Lake Viking News publishing operation. Marvin also informed the committee of his intent to go ahead with the purchase of the Gallatin Publishing desktop computer that comes completely loaded with all

of the publishing software previously used by GPC for the Lake Viking News. The $600 price is a considerable savings from what was anticipated. Finally, the Committee reviewed a document on the anticipated staff payroll for 2022. This document is in the early stages and will continue to be reviewed. Thanks to Missy Leggett on putting this together. Strategic Planning Committee Kenny Southwick gave an update of where the Strategic Plan was today. The Committee met on July 6 and reviewed the recommendations that were made to the Board back in November 2020. The Board asked the Committee to present some areas of emphasis which include the following: • Continue the development of a long-range plan for soil erosion, dredging and silt removal. • Identify, budget and implement priority projects. • Establish procedures for GFI inspection and compliance of all docks with electrical connections. • Verify condition of clubhouse septic system and make all necessary system improvements. These were the 4 recommendations made to the Board and after reviewing these recommendations we feel there has been good progress toward these 4 things, with the exception of

Big 4th of July Weekend

It started with a big resonant bang – somewhere on the lake, sometime before July 3. Then there was another, and another, and the Lake Viking Fourth of July holiday was off and running. As always, the lake became a very busy place, and there were plenty of activities to keep Association Members occupied and entertained. There were food trucks, free ice-cream, decorated boats, the water-stream provided by the volunteer fire-department, and family movie and a Kenny Chesney concert on successive nights at the Lake Viking Marine big-screen for viewing by boats on the water. There was the boat parade that Association Members are invited to watch at the Yacht Club every year, and, of course, tremendous fireworks displays put on by the Association from Beach One at 9:50 PM AND the fireworks extravaganza put on by the Confortis at Beach Two. Many other displays could be viewed all around the lake. These pictures show some of the highlights . . . .

Awhile back, it was necessary for the Lake Viking Church to take the steeple off the roof because of structural damage.

VVA Board of Directors Meeting

• Control the trash budget • Improve the beaches and bathrooms • Coordinate a meet and greet The Committee will be developing quarterly reports for the Board. The Board has again asked the Committee to look at certain items of concern. • Develop a long-range plan for the Lake Viking road system. • Continue to upgrade and implement technology infrastructure: hardware, software and Human Resources. • Create a healthy lake environment, addressing soil erosion, dredging and drinking water quality. Mark Leggett asked if the Committee had scripted anything yet on the long-range road system. Kenny Southwick replied it is just on their list of things to work on.

Activities Committee Celeste Armanees reported several upcoming events. The patio party with Now & Then was rescheduled to August 13. This week the Activities Committee will be painting the underside of the Pavilion in anticipation of the patio party to be held on July 17. Also coming up is Family Movie Night on August 7 and a new event on August 14 is a fishing tournament. Building Committee Marvin McNabb reported the Committee only met once in June and reviewed 11 permits. They will be meeting 3 times in July. Fire Department Tony Gronniger reported the sirens were tested at their monthly meeting and that they had a great time providing the water spout over the 4th of July. He also wanted to thank the Marina for providing a place for the firetruck to spray and make it easy for them to navigate in case they needed to get out. Campground Committee Mike Booth reported the campgrounds were full over the 4th of July weekend. The Committee is working on an RFP for the campground electrical systems. Lake Committee Lake Committee met in a working session on June 23 and a followup on June 27 which resulted in approximately 20 letters and emails for non-compliance items. The notices went out on a broad variety of items – everything from missing lot numbers, to weeds and brush, brush piles, property upkeep, silt fences and one very critical erosion issue. We were able to work with owner of the property and he put up a good silt fence right before a round of the heavy rains came in. The Committee will go out on the water again this week. Infraction Committee/Safety Allan Slavin gave the report for June infractions. In the month of June there were 27 tickets issued

Lake Viking News

and 49 warnings. The biggest violators were not putting up silt fences and failure to mow. The majority of the mowing violations were in the campgrounds. The warnings issued consisted mostly of movement conflicting with traffic on the water. The Committee reviewed a total of 40 infractions with 3 dismissals and 37 issued fines in the amount of $3780.00. Mark Leggett reported the old jet ski that John has been working on should be in the water on Monday. Also, the Marina is getting 2 new Yamaha jet skis tomorrow and we should know tomorrow if one of those is ours. Dredge Committee Shawn Hepinstall reported on dredge operations: Shawn passed out a summary of the South End Construction project. This project was first presented to the members at the Annual Meeting in 2020 and now construction will begin this week. We have estimated this project will take about $650,000 to $680,000 to complete and we are still comfortable with that number. Total money available for this project is approximately $818, 888. We did sell all the remaining Community Areas. Total revenue from selling the Community Areas was $561,000. There will be capital gains to pay on this money. The first phase will be about $313,000, which leaves about $500,000 for phase 2. Shawn presented a payment schedule for Selby Excavating. Shawn described some additional Dredge Committee work as follows: • Maintenance on dredge • Dip silt out of Community Area 3 and repair weir. • Cut and drain silt ponds in 3 Tubes • Review and plan south end dredging process. • Potentially begin dipping behind Yacht Club Lake Manager Report (Shad Mort) 1. Trash: Waste Management still has some dumpsters here. Hopefully they will have them out of here this week. The new trash company have set their dumpsters. 2. Road work: We will be doing more patching this week, weather permitting. Late August or early September we will be chip and sealing. Shad asked the Board about using Building Permit money to continue the patching process. The Board was okay with using those funds. 3. Clubhouse chimney: The Clubhouse fireplace chimney is beginning to crumble. The gutters are full of small pieces of rock falling from the chimney. Shad had Ward Roofing take a look at it and it probably is something we will have to capital expend to get it fixed right. 4. 4th of July: Shad said it was the busiest 4th he has ever seen. We were accident free.

Continued from page 1

Financials Troy Lesan moved to approve the financial reports. Celeste Armanees seconded; motion passed. Guest Time: 1. Chris Huffman addressed the Board about a dock permit that he was denied approval by the Building Committee. Chris was told that the location where he wanted to move the dock was not his property, but belonged to an adjacent property owner. He is asking the Board to reconsider the dock placement. Chris believes the map on our website is inaccurate. Troy Lesan asked Chris if the property was staked and Chris responded yes. Chris’s wife showed the Board a google map that showed how the property lays. Chris asked if someone from Board could come out and look at the property before they make a decision. Marvin McNabb and Flint Hibler will go over tomorrow and take a look at where the stakes are and if they would reconsider. Board Discussions 1.Cameras: Marvin McNabb reported the cameras and internet have been installed at the maintenance area, but the internet still needs to be reconfigured to be able to monitor from the Safety Office. Marvin also commented to Shad that where the trash truck is being parked is blocking the view of the cameras. 2.Lake Viking News: We had the first publication of the Lake Viking News since purchasing it. It went very smooth. Troy sent the Board a breakdown of the first months expenses and he still believes we made a little money. We have a part time person that will be working on the selling of ads. We have already purchased a printer and we will be purchasing a computer from Gallatin Publishing. 3. Fencing: Marvin McNabb is letting go of the fencing idea, due to much opposition. He is looking into other options, such as a gate system. He is waiting on a call back for a quote. 4. Meet and Greet: Celeste Armanees and the Activities Committee would to resurrect the “Meet and Greet” for new members and add a couple of dates to the calendar. Celeste moved to add Saturday, September 4, 2021 and Saturday, May 21, 2022, for a “Meet and Greet” at the clubhouse from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. Mark Leggett seconded; motion passed. 5. Bathrooms and Beaches: Mark Leggett opened a discussion on the improvements needed at the beach bathrooms. Mark and Tony Gronniger went around and inspected the beach bathrooms and are of the thought they need some major updates. Troy Lesan questioned whether we even needed the beach 3 facility any more. The members present said it is used a lot. Tony Gronniger believes they do need new doors and

closures and maybe even automatic lights. These things need replaced now. Allan Slavin commented the doors and closures would be a great short term fix, but would like to see them totally gutted and new fixtures also installed. Shad Mort cautioned them on putting any high end fixtures, but something durable. Mark agreed to look into getting quotes on some fixtures and Shad will look into lights. Adjourn: Mark Leggett moved to adjourn to Executive Session, to discuss personnel and Board organizational matters at 7:18 p.m. Allan Slavin seconded; motion passed. Attendance: Flint Hibler, Mark & Stephanie Closterman, Robert Walton, Shawn & Paula Hepinstall, Jerry Goehring, Doug & Resa Wiltse, Robert Hayes, Sue Wolfe, Jeff & Janet Yuratovich, Levi McClure, Chris & Jennifer Huffman, Mike Krehbiel, Barbara Giamolvo, Leanne Lee, David Sandy, Shad Mort (Lake Manager), Sally Zerbe (Office). Let the record show that these minutes are a record of the business transacted at this meeting and a sampling of the discussions. Comments and discussions are not reflected in whole or as actual quotations in the minutes, nor do they reflect all comments by members. Respectfully submitted, Celeste Armanees, Secretary VVA Board of Directors

Airline travelers aren’t the only ones who have layovers during long flights. Pelicans do too. Each year, as they travel the long distances for their migratory flights between Canada and points south, including Texas, Florida, and Mexico, White Pelicans will always stop over for short periods of leisurely R&R at Lake Viking. These guys are creatures of habit just as humans are, and they’ve established a definite preference for Lake Viking. Association Members can expect to see them each autumn and spring. (Photo taken June 21 by Troy Lesan.) Many home owners and lot owners were hit with high water levels this June.

High Water Causes Pre-Holiday Jitters By Troy Lesan What would a summer at Lake Viking be without heavy rains, highwater events, and, yes, Lake Closures? Sure enough: this year, when around six inches of rain fell in a 48 hour window around June 25, water rose to two and a half feet over the spillway and the lake was closed. (The Lake Manager’s policy – a policy unanimously supported by the Board of Directors – is that closure occurs anytime water is in excess of one foot over spillway). With the water level dropping, and staff scurrying out in the maintenance boat to remove logs and drift the lake was opened again after water receded. But then with a hard 2” rain again on June 29 which added to the water level that was still high, the lake was once again briefly closed. With the big holiday week-

end around the corner and memories still fresh from last year, when a couple of holidays were interrupted by high water and lake closures, members became uneasy. “When will the lake open” I’ve got a house full of eight kids,” one Association Member posted on the Lake Viking Facebook page. “And I’ve got a house full of ten kids!” another member added. Another member opined that it was “kinda nice to sit out on the dock with the peace and quiet of no boats flying by – while yet another member said that he’d “seen the water higher.” True, and thankfully, Lake Viking didn’t get the ten inches of rain that fell in the Saint Joseph/Savanna area. As it was, we ended up on a good note weather-wise for the big Fourth of July Week-end.

The spillway by the dam was rushing with water the last week on June.

available in paperback or Kindle on Amazon. For about 40 years, Paul worked as a lighting technician in film and television, doing everything from hauling cable and operating a dimmer board to hiring and firing crew members. He’s been part of memorable movies that won academy awards, like “As Good As It Gets, and a few klunkers he’d just as soon forget, "I don’t write them, I just light them," he says with a smile. He’s worked on so many films and TV shows that he had trouble remembering them all and he finally made up a list. As time went on, Paul kept adding to the list and writing down his memories which naturally evolved into writing a memoir of his years behind the lights. Here is one Amazon review of the book, and he received five out of five stars: “ An Inside Look” Behind the lights, indeed! Paul Caven shines his light on a side of Hollywood seldom noticed, providing a crew's-eye-view of the stars and the movies we've seen them in. But it's not all about the well-known names and faces. “Behind the Lights” provides us with a rare insight into the professionalism, hard work, and dedication of the heroes of the film industry, the ones whose names quickly roll by on the silver screen as we exit the theater – the gaffers, the grips, and the best boys - those who work in a world

Missouri State Highway Patrol Seeking Applicants

GFI Inspection Viking Valley Safety officers will be checking boat docks during the next few weeks. Effective December 2020, GFI’s (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters) are required on Lake Viking Doc ks. This is part of a National Electrical Code which is designed to protect swimmers around docks. For info, refer to Page 24, VVA 2021 Handbook, last 2 sentences of the rule “Floating Platforms.”

The Missouri State Highway Patrol, a premier law enforcement agency, is testing for new troopers. The Patrol is encouraging qualified individuals of all backgrounds to apply, and will offer testing at nine different locations in Missouri. Those who successfully complete testing will be eligible to continue in the selection process for the 113th Recruit Class, scheduled to begin training on January 18, 2022. The application deadline is September 18, 2021. To be eligible, candidates must possess a minimum of 30 college credit hours from an accredited college/university or served in any component of the United States Armed Forces, including National Guard, for a minimum of two years, with an honorable discharge if separated, or a minimum of two years’ experience as a full-time, POST-certified peace officer when recruit training begins.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol has updated its uniform guidelines to allow troopers to have tattoos or brands as long as they meet two requirements: 1) The tattoos or brands cannot depict or support criminal behavior, drug usage, nudity, profanity, promiscuity, subversive groups, bigotry, etc. 2) Tattoos/brands cannot be located on the head, neck, hands, wrists, or any part of the body which would be visible during movements in the performance of their duties while wearing an official uniform or civilian attire. Troopers with tattoos on the arms that would be visible in the class B uniform (short sleeves) will wear the class A uniform (long sleeves). The starting annual salary for trooper is $49,536, and following three years of service, the trooper first class’ salary is increased to $52,200. Other benefits include group health insurance, contributory retirement, career advancement, and more. The selection process is a multi-phase testing procedure including: written examination, a physical fitness for duty assessment, polygraph examination, background investigation, and oral interview board. Written and physical examinations take place in each troop area across the state. After a conditional offer of employment, the applicant must successfully complete a medical examination (to include vision and hearing), psychological examination, a psychological interview, drug screening, and final applicant review. Interested persons can find out more about the qualifications by contacting a Patrol recruiter at telephone number 1-800-796-7000, or may apply online at www.motrooper.com. The number of successful candidates being extended an offer of employment is contingent upon factors such as budget constraints and the number of vacant positions statewide.

Know Your Numbers … When it comes to planning our Party Guest List we all follow the rule of “the more the merrier.” However, that saying doesn’t necessarily apply when it comes to boating. All boats should have a Capacity Plate located near the steering area or helm. If your boat does not provide that info, you can calculate the number of people you can safely carry using this equation … Number of People =

Vessel Length x Vessel Width ÷ 15 Remember, the maximum person capacity is a guideline that needs to be adjusted based on the average weight of your passengers (150 lbs.) and other supplies you are taking on board. The Maximum Gross Load is the total weight your boat can han-

dle—including people, equipment, fuel, engine assembly and steering controls. Have a safe summer!
