Be at war with your vices, at
peace with your neighbors, and
let every new year find you a better man. - Benjamin Franklin
It’s not too early to make plans
to attend the Annual Membership
Meeting held on Tuesday, March
10th. The meeting will be held at
7:30 p.m. at the Church of Jesus Christ inside Gate 2.
At the meeting we will present the past year’s accomplishments and our goals for the remainder of 2015.
The Treasurer will present a statement of financial condition of the Association. But the main purpose of the
meeting will be to elect directors for the even-numbered
districts for the next two years. The designated voters
in the even-numbered districts will soon receive a ballot
in the mail to cast a vote for the director from your district. Every two years, one-half of the Board of
Directors for Lake Lotawana Association is elected by
their neighbors. Your ballot will have on it all the owners’ names in your district. Mark the person’s name
who you want to represent you and place the ballot in
the provided envelope and complete the information on
the outside. Your ballot must be signed (on the front of
the envelope) for it to be counted. Your ballot must be
returned to the Association office by mail or in person
on or before noon on Saturday March 7, 2015. Ballots
are NOT collected at the meeting. If you are not familiar with the names listed on your ballot and don’t know
who to vote for, call your current director. We can provide his or her name at the office. Your current director
may agree to continue in a new term of two years or
he/she may be able to tell you about another neighbor
who would like to have the job. If you’re interested in

Mayor’s Column
It is with great pleasure (and
relief) to announce the City will
have a new City Administrator
next month. On January 13,
2015, the Board of Aldermen
(two members were absent) concurred unanimously with the
selection committee to hire
Leslee Rivarola for the position. The selection committee included Aldermen Scott Miles and Larry Byrne,
citizens Kimberli Cutler, Doug Graham and myself.
The selection process included the review of more than
70 applicants’ resumes and individual interviews with
the finalists.
Leslee has been employed by both the cities of
Lenexa and Mission, Kansas, and gained experience
with positions in many departments that include:
•
Assistant City Administrator
•
Communications (IT) Supervisor
•
Code Enforcement
•
Economic Development
•
Stormwater/ Utility Oversight
•
Contract Compliance
•
Budget Development
•
Solid Waste Utility Management
•
Capital Improvement
•
Numerous Advisory Committees
She graduated from Park University and has a
Masters in Public Administration Degree from the
University of Kansas. Currently, Leslee is the owner of
a consulting firm, focusing on assisting smaller municipalities with advisory services.
Your Board of Aldermen and I expect Leslee will
build on our ongoing effort to build the City of Lake
Lotawana. We benefitted greatly from the previous
City Administrator who laid the groundwork in 18

questions you might have about the responsibilities of a
director.
2014 was a year of change here at the Lake. We have
had an incredible amount of new building and a record
number of new owners. This is the meeting where you
can invest one evening of your life to discover what’s
actually happening here. Your district director is the
person you elect to make the rules and shape the policies of everything affecting the Lake, the roads and the
common areas which the Association manages. It is
democracy in its purest form. If Dr. Franklin were alive
today, he would certainly encourage you to cast your
ballot and come to this meeting. Hope to see you there.

What Does 2015 Hold in Store for Investors?
If you’re an investor,
you probably had a pretty
good year in 2014. But
what’s in store for 2015?
It’s essentially impossible to make precise predictions about the performance of the financial
markets — but it is possible to identify those economic conditions and
market forces that may
help shape outcomes in
the investment world for
2015. By paying close
attention to these conditions and forces, you can
gain some valuable
insights as to what investment moves might make
sense for you.
Here are a few of these
moves:
•Consider adding
stocks. With stock prices
having climbed higher
and higher for more than
five years, you might be
wondering if it’s time to
scale back on your ownership of equities. After all,
no “bull” market lasts forever. Still, some factors
point
to
continued
strength for stocks over
the long term. First, we
are seeing signs of
improving
economic
growth;
employment
gains and low oil prices
are giving consumers
more confidence, leading
to a boost in spending.
Second, corporate earnings — a key driver of
stock prices — were quite
strong in the second half
of 2014, and companies
appear poised to show
more good results in
2015. Third, stocks — at
least
large-company
stocks — are still reasonably valued, as measured

Keep Your Retirement
on Solid Ground –
Even If Things at Work
Are Up in the Air.
Few things are as stressful as worrying about
work. Because it’s easy to feel like things are out
of control, it’s essential to consider any financial
decision carefully. This is especially true when it
comes to your retirement savings.
Edward Jones can help. We’ll start by getting to
know your goals. Then we’ll sort through your
current situation and work with you face to face
to develop a strategy that can help you keep
your retirement on track.

by their price-to-earnings
ratios (P/E). Given these
factors, you might want to
think about adding quality
stocks to your holdings —
assuming, of course, these
stocks can help meet your
needs for a balanced portfolio. And be aware that
even the most favorable
conditions can’t assure a
continued run-up in stock
prices, which can and will
fluctuate.
•Prepare for rising
interest rates. For several
years, interest rates have
been at, or near, historical
lows. Given the strengthening economy, and the
decreased need for stimulus, the Federal Reserve
may well raise short-term
interest rates in 2015, perhaps as early as this summer. But long-term rates
may start rising even
before then, so you may
want to take a close look
at your bonds and other
fixed-rate investments. As
you probably know, when
interest rates rise, the
value of existing bonds
typically falls because
investors won’t pay full
price for your bonds when
they can get newly issued
ones that pay higher rates.
One way to combat the
effects of rising rates is to
build a “ladder” consisting of short-, intermediate- and long-term bonds.
With such a ladder, you’ll
be able to redeem your
maturing
short-term
bonds and reinvest them
in the new, higher-paying
bonds.
•Look for investment
opportunities
abroad.
Although
economic
growth has been slow in
parts of the world, especially China, many countries have now initiated
policies to spur economic
growth. These actions can
create opportunities for
international
equity
investments. Keep in
mind, though, that international
investing
involves particular risks,
such as currency fluctuations and political and
economic instability. So if
you are considering foreign investments, you

may want to consult with
a financial professional.
There are no guarantees, but by following the
above suggestions, you
may be able to take
advantage of what looks
to be a fairly favorable
investment environment
for 2015. While you
should make most of your
investment
decisions
based on long-term con-

siderations, it’s always a

what’s happening in the

THE BUSINESS
BEAT
Landmark South Body Shop
Brad Wood, Manager
by Paula Koch
Brad Wood, well
known former Lake rat,
has taken his three plus
decades of body shop
experience to his new
position as manager of
the Body Shop at
Landmark
South.
Located at 7820 E 171st
Street, Belton, MO just
off the south 71/58 highway exit, the Landmark
South Body Shop is a
full service collision and
repair center and offers
“all aspects of cosmetic,
collision,
insurance,
hail, frame, suspension,
and detailing,” says
Brad.
Though the dealership
is a Dodge, Chrysler,
Jeep, and Ram dealer,
the Body Shop can work
on any make or model.
Brad says, “The Body
Shop had actually
closed prior to the purchase of the dealership
last August. Mr. Fletcher
is the owner and also
has two other dealerships on Noland Road.”
Landmark
South
General Manager David
Branstetter has been
with the company for
over 20 years and is
renowned for his knowledge of each customer.
“He has been teaching
me new and exciting
ways to service our customers from a dealer
perspective. It is amaz-
January 28, 2015
ing the way he recalls
each and every customer
and makes sure that no
matter what they are
here for, they are treated
fairly and with respect,”
says Brad.
Brad is thoroughly
enjoying using his
expertise in this family
owned, customer friendly environment. “We
work on any make or
model. With my experience, I can work on anything. It is a good place
to work on Dodge, Jeep
and Chrysler because all
the parts are on hand. It
is really no different
than the Troostwood
shop before. I have a lot
of connections to get
parts from different
places. The fact that I’ve
worked on a lot of older
cars and restorations
opens up avenues.
Custom paint jobs are
another area of experience that I bring.”
Having been raised in
a family business, Brad
enjoys the atmosphere at
Landmark South. “One
thing I like about the
shop is it is smaller and
still has the personal
atmosphere that I am
used to. A lot of people
feel a dealership is cold
and impersonal and can
be more expensive. It is
not the case here. It is a
family business and they
make me feel like part
of the team. It is a tight
knit group of people,”
notes Brad. Body Shop
staff come from a variety of backgrounds and
bring a broad array of
expertise to provide professional
customerpleasing results.
Right now Brad’s
focus is on building visibility for the newly
opened Body Shop.
“The challenge is making people aware we are
here. It is closer in a lot
of cases than where my
old shop was.” Anyone
who did business with
Brad before knows of
the talents that he brings
to his work.
Brad, Vicki, and
Sabrina enjoy country
living in Garden City
where their focus is on
self sufficiency. That
includes lots of gardening as well as their new
hobby of raising chickens. Brad also has a
large workshop on the
property where he does
restorations and works
on motorcycles. Caitlin
and Amanda live in
Columbia.
To experience the fine
workmanship of the
Landmark South Body
Shop, you can reach
Brad at 816-331-4300 or

City of Lake Lotawana
Board of Aldermen Meeting Minutes Special Meeting/Work Session December 2, 2014
Unapproved Minutes. A full recording of the meeting is on the City’s website: lakelotawana.org
1)
At 6:30 pm Mayor Welsh called the meeting to
order.
2)
City Clerk Rhonda Littrell called roll
Mayor David Welsh - Present
Alderwoman Rita Aholt – Present
Alderman Larry Byrne – Absent
Alderman Scott Miles – Present
Alderman Chris Jackson – Present
Alderman David Tillema – Present
Alderman Charles Falkenberg – Present
There was a quorum present.
3)
A motion to approve Bill 14-36 adopting
Resolution authorizing the appointment of Ron Snyder
to the Lake Lotawana Community Improvement District
Board of Directors was made by Jackson and seconded
by Falkenberg. The motion passed with the following
votes:
Aye – Aholt, Miles, Jackson, Tillema,
Falkenberg; Nay – None; Absent - Byrne
4)
Ron Davies has contacted Jennifer Baird who is
no longer with Paul Campo’s law firm and the City
Attorney explained the reason for the request for
“Waiver of Conflict of Interest.” Under the rules of conduct, the matter in which she would be representing Mr.
Davies on is essentially the same matter that she was
counseling the City on. It is not uncommon in these
instances to have this type of request. If the Board does
not give the consent, she would not be able to represent
him and he would have to find another attorney. The
discussion that took place that Jennifer was present in
regards to Ron’s request was all done in open session;
there was no closed session to discuss any legal issues
relating to this. Jackson expressed concerns that the
release could lead to possible litigation and questioned
why the City would want to take the risk. A motion to
acknowledge and consent the waiver of conflict of interest for Mr. Ron Davies and Jennifer Baird was made by
Tillema and seconded by Falkenberg. The motion
passed with the following votes: Aye – Miles, Tillema,
Falkenberg; Nay – Jackson, Aholt; Absent - Byrne
5)
There were not bids submitted for the clarifier
repair. Ted Martin in going to call some people that he
knows to see if they would give the City some bids.
Public Works Director, Keith is going to call the company who repaired it last time to see if they would submit
a bid. The last time it cost $3,200, when Keith contacted the company regarding the repairs, they thought the
cost would be $3,500. Since this counts as a repair, the
City is not required to pay prevailing wage. It needs to
be before spring. The suggestion by several Board
members was to put it in Keith’s hand and give him a
limit of $4,000 for the repair and to keep the Board
informed.
6)
Public Works Director, Keith Herzberg contacted six different companies for bids to put heat into the
Public Works building. He received three bids back.
For the heaters alone it was going to be $10,000 to
$12,000, plus electricity has to be run to the thermostats,
and run the piping from the gas meter up to the heaters.
On the piping he is waiting on Missouri Gas Energy to
tell him what they will do and what we will have to do.
They said that it would be six weeks after a work order
is turned in before a response would be sent back. All
three bids are pretty close. The City is talking about a
$15,000 project to get heat into the building. All that is
needed is a heating system to keep chemicals stored in
the building from freezing and to do some repairs to
equipment.
Welsh – “One of the projects we are working with Ted
Martin is the GSI mapping of the Sewer System around
the lake which is part of the requirement of both the
Storm Water and AOC. I have asked Ted to start preparing the paper work to get the bid request out for doing
the sewer repairs for next summer. All the Cities,
including ours, who put in for a storm water permit by
the date that it was required are being held up by the
State of Missouri because it has not been able to get its
water permit from the EPA for a variety of reasons. Ted
and Keith are working on the next AOC report that is
due January 28th. The applicants for City Administrator
have been narrowed down to 7 people who we have sent
four basic questions in order to narrow it down a little
bit. We are just getting answers back from them. We are
following the process Miles sent you all in an email.”
7)
The point of the discussion is to determine
whether or how the City is going to set the setback on the
lakeside homes whether it is going to be different or the
same at the Homeowners Association setbacks. The
option is to make the setback zero or five feet to gives
the setback decision back to the Association. The City
had to repeal what had been previously in place because
it was an unauthorized delegation of its governmental
authority which can’t be given it to a private sector.
Another class or category could be made for those lots
which go out into the water. Three definitions for the
three tiers for Lakeside Residential will have to be created. It would eventually have to go to the P&Z and go
through the full process. After this discussion, the thinking is to bring Doug Hermes because the City needs his
expertise. It may not be ready to go before the Planning
and Zoning Commission until March.
The City Attorney will have a marked version of the
personnel policy at the next meeting with the suggested
revisions.
Work is being done on an ordinance creating an agricultural zone. The City has maps that show agriculture
zones but there is not agricultural zone in the code. That
has to be a defined district.
The registration for open elected positions opens on
December 16, 2014. Mayor Welsh announced that he
would not be running for Mayor again. Miles
announced that he would probably run for Mayor.
Aholt – “The Sportsman Club should be required to
have a storm water plan because of the way the water
runs off of the Sportsman Club to the lake. It has been
over a year and a half since the testing was done that
showed PAH as in lead right at the culvert. It is not a priority for DNR but they have permission from DNR to do
reconstruction of the rifle and gun area which is under
storm water control. I think somebody needs to be
watching that and talking with Jackson County about
tying best practices to their 25 year permit and tying
their storm water plan to the 25 permit. They have two
permits to redo the rifle and gun area.” Welsh – “When
I last talked to Jackson County, I expressed my concern
that the City be informed when any permission is given
to them by Jackson County because they can have permission from other agencies but they cannot do anything
without Jackson County. I was assured that if there a
permit issued, that we would be notified immediately. I
will check on that.”
The question was brought up as to whether an
Alderman could participate in a meeting via audio/visual by Tillema. They could participate in a roll call vote
via video conferencing.
8)
A motion to close the meeting pursuant to
Section 610.021.3 and 610.021.13 RSMo to discuss personnel matters was made by Alderman Falkenberg and
seconded by Alderman Tillema. The Board went into
closed session at 7:55 pm with the following votes: Aye
– Miles, Jackson, Tillema, Falkenberg, Aholt; Nay –
None; Absent - Byrne. The open session reconvened at
8:10 pm.
9)
A motion to adjourn the meeting was made by
Alderman Miles and seconded by Alderman Falkenberg.
The meeting adjourned with the following votes: Aye
–Tillema, Falkenberg, Aholt, Miles, Jackson; Nay –
None; Absent - Byrne.

Student of the Month -
January 2015
Jaxon Monte, Grade 1
Jaxon Monte is a wonderful member of our class. In addition to being bright
and full of knowledge, he is also a wonderful leader and helps our school in a
number of ways. Jaxon can be counted on to help me with small errands which
need done such as taking the library books or notes to the office, as well as with
more responsibility such as helping other students in his class that need help
finding other classrooms within the building or showing them what they need to
do to be successful. I know I can always count on Jaxon to step up and be a
leader in our class. He can be the example teachers need to show other kids how
to follow the directions and to do the right thing even when they think no one is
watching. I know that Jaxon is going to use his skills as a leader to continue to
be a high achieving student as well as a model for others to follow throughout
his time at Mason and beyond. I am proud that Jaxon is a member of my class
family and I am excited to see what amazing things he will do.
- Mrs. Beichley, 1st Grade
Paige Werremeyer, Grade 6
Mrs. Leech believes Paige deserves the Student of Month Award because "she
comes to my room most days with a bright smile on her face and a positive attitude. She loves to assist anyone needing help in using the new technology such
as google chrome. Paige is such a hard worker. She always puts her full effort
into her assignments, and she has been able to achieve so much through her hard
work and perseverance. It is such a pleasure to teach a student motivated to
learn." Mrs. Frashier stated, "I thoroughly enjoy having Paige in my class each
and every day. She’s a teacher’s dream: responsible, respectful, a role model,
looks out for others, determined, a natural helper, and a tech wiz. Paige exemplifies the January character trait of having courage and perseverance. Parts of
school, like reading and spelling, require Paige to work a little harder and practice a little more. I have no doubt that her determination to do her best will not
falter as she heads to the middle school. Mason will miss her positive spirit next
year. Lucky for me, I get to keep her for a few more months!"
