sign. New sign proposed to be on the corner of 132nd and Buffalo Road
Lake fish expense explained: This is fish we stock that won’t reproduce in the lake, ex.
VSOA 2022-2023 budget was adopted.
Treasurer’s report attached.
Lake was healthy this year. We do have to have some weeds as they balance out the
bad algae. We will put in more grass carp this spring, they keep weeds down. Will add
walleye soon, this fall.
Aaron does a couple of weed sprays every spring and summer. It is up to the
homeowner to treat their areas if they feel it’s necessary. Please use products that are
labeled for lake water.
Aaron will get a map added to the website that shows where the fish habitats are

Please submit plans to Alan before you start a project.
Everyone needs to have these attached to their boats
Sanitation Sewer lines: Just an FYI that there are plans for these going in off of Buffalo
road sometime in the near future.
Trees: Homeowners need to make sure their trees are trimmed off the roads. Please
make sure branches are trimmed up so that they are not hitting trucks coming through.
Road Maintenance fund: This continues to build, $500 of annual dues goes towards
this fund. Once we get a sufficient amount we will start getting bids for future road work.
This will take some years to build up enough for that
Any spots that are in immediate need of repair, the board will look into a temporary fix
that would not include redoing the entire road itself.
Covenant compliance: homeowners are to keep their properties looking neat and
cleaned up. This includes lakeside and roadside. Gary will speak with individuals
separately who need to clean up their properties.
Rules and Regulations and Bylaws: The board has discussed changes being made to
the bylaws and realizes that some updates need to be made. A task force will be made
to discuss what we would like changed and bring to the board for discussion. We would
then need to have a special meeting to vote on these changes. Changing the bylaws
requires 51% attendance to vote on this, and cannot include proxies.
Items mentioned for change include; boating speed limit overall, speed limit in
channels, boats with skiers and tubers keeping so far away from shores and docks,
times set for skiing and tubing.
The Rules and Regulations taskforce will meet to form their proposal to the board, with
a meeting held by May 1, 2022.
A bylaws taskforce will meet to form their proposal to the board, with those changes
being voted on at the next annual meeting.
Air BNB: There is one being advertised on the lake. Gary will check with legal to make
sure this is ok and not going against our community rules.
