3. Bank RENT Transfers: Any park resident who has a Bank of Versailles account can set up an automatic account
space rent transfer. Using the ACH banking system, your monthly space rent will be deposited without a check or any
time delay in receiving payment and be made on a specific date as it relates to your specific finances. If you are
interested in this please see Justin for the 1 page form to be given to Bank of Versailles.
4. SEPTIC OPERATION - RESIDENT ADVISORY INFORMATION: All residents should remember that your septic
system is dramatically affected by periods of heavy rain. When the ground becomes water saturated it has a much
more difficult time in trying to absorb the additional water loads placed upon the system - this can occur from additional
people visiting, dishwashers, washers, etc... Residents should attempt to reduce their water discharge into the septic
tank during these periods of heavy rain. It is wise during these situations to put off laundry and spread out showers to
minimize the loading of the system until the ground can absorb more readily. A classic situation - you cannot put 100
gallons into a container that currently can hold 20....precautionary prevention always pays large dividends.
5. PARK ENTRY ROAD: We continue to receive “A Plea For Help” from those residents whose homes are along the
parks entrance roads … that when your guests come in … please inform them to drive slowly. This is especially a
concern with the dust in the dry months of July/August. But above all – this is the courteous thing to do – as you would
want if you were located along the entry roadways. We know that some of the problems are from those who live further
down the road … but we do in fact have our own offenders – Please try to be part of the solution for this problem.
*** Also please spend some time informing and training grandkids/guest to stay away from this entry road on golf carts
because of the danger not being seen by those uncourteous or speeding offenders. We will be purchasing the
fiberglass rods/flags to be attached to the roofs of golf carts to improve the visibility and safety of operation – we’ll
have a few additional for those interested residents who would like to add and help insure the safety/visibility of their
own carts/grandchildren – the small investment could save a life!
6. BOAT SLIP WAIT LIST: If you are currently on the list or desire a slip in the future … you must confirm your needs to
the office. Those needs must include “IN WRITING” the preference of size, location, and lift capable or not. Any
resident who does not confirm their wishes will be considered “no longer interested in a slip” and dropped from the list.
7. RESIDENT REQUESTS TO THE PARK OFFICE: We understand the need for residents to ask the park for
assistance with many aspects of your home. When the need arises we are more than willing to assist in any way that
we can. That being said, we have had many instances in the past few years were the park has had to make special
arrangements and commit many hours of time to assist the residents. These have included help with HVAC, Roofs,
Boat Lifts, Skirting and Siding, Tree removal, Water Leaks in the home and Septic issues before the tank. We will
continue to help all residents, but in the future, when the park manager has to spend time away from his work, there
will be charges at a realistic hourly rate invoiced to the applicable resident.
NOTE FROM TERRY: Justin’s “days off” can be changed due to unexpected situations or weather….but as a general
rule….the following will apply…. April through September (OFF on Sunday & Monday)…..October to March (OFF on
Saturday & Sunday). Please respect this time off whenever possible, but of course call whenever there is an
emergency or serious need to interrupt or inform of a new occurrence.
8. OUTSIDE CONTRACTORS: When having someone in the park doing work on the outside/inside of your home,
contractors are to CHECK IN at the office before starting on any projects in the park as a courtesy notification. The
resident is responsible for seeing that their contractors seek and make this contact to TIMBERLAKE VILLAGE/Justin
which will improve communication and insure everyone’s security. In addition, as per the park covenants all outside
construction must have a diagram of the project submitted to the office and be approved before starting.
9. SEPTIC CHEMICAL: invoice included – PLEASE DO NOT COMBINE IN AMOUNT WITH RENT CHECKS. This year we
will be changing how we handle the collection of funds and distribution of septic chemical. We had several residents
last year that simply did NOT pay their portion of the septic chemical – follow-up reminders were sent with only partial
success. We cannot continue to follow up on this minor item. This year we will be handing out the invoice, you will
receive your septic chemical in July just as before with our summer newsletter. Those residents that have outstanding
amounts will be invoiced for last year + a $10 late fee and this year’s amount, which will be due by July 15th. PLEASE
do not make follow up necessary and additional late fees. Remember that one scoop is to go in at the beginning of
each month and if you winterize then put in two before you leave and two when you come back in the Spring.
10. BOAT INSURANCE UP-DATE INFO REQUIRED AND REQUESTED: Everyone who has a boat on Timberlake
Village property must have a current boat insurance form given to the park. We request that ALL RESIDENTS make
this a “TO DO” item by July 15th as we are required to have current up to date information on file at the park office.
11. Facebook: We have started to use social media more to promote the park and homes for sale in the park. If you
would share and like posts related to Timberlake Village it is greatly appreciated. Feel free to add appropriate pictures
of boating adventures, park events, and people at the park.
12. RENT BOX REMINDER: Please remember to raise the flag to let the office know you have added something to the
13. NEW WET STEPS ON SWIMMING DOCK: Please help take care of the new addition. The water is shallow and with
the unexpected rise/fall of lake level…it is critical to pull up the steps to prevent damage and place the pin to secure. If
left in the water the finish will become damaged….SO PLEASE PULL UP AFTER YOU USE AND BEFORE YOU LEAVE
THE SWIM PLATFORM – WE WOULD LIKE THIS TO BECOME A HABIT FOR ALL SO EVERYONE CAN CONTINUE TO
ENJOY FOR YEARS TO COME. THANKS!
14. Exceptional recommendation : We are always looking for contractors who are reliable and competent. If you need
repairs, regarding your HVAC (Heating and Cooling) there is one who we can recommend with the highest regards –
MARTIN WHITE HVAC – Martin is prompt and fair in his charges for air conditioner & furnace repairs. He has
performed work for residents and had done our personal home A/C for the past several years. We have always been
satisfied and pleased with his performance and professionalism. He can be contacted at 573-374-4357.
15. Compliments Extended to All Residents: The Park has recently received numerous compliments from outside
people who have toured homes for sale. They comment specifically on how homes are well cared for and maintained.
They voice their amazements at the overall cleanliness and pride of ownership that it is clearly evident in many homes.
They say it is NOT a compliment they extend to other parks and we always make a point to say “we have the best
people at the lake” as we know it takes a whole village! Thank you to all who have made upgrades in painting, deck
staining, and flower beds this last year. We do sincerely appreciate and truly believe that Timberlake Village is one
best parks at Lake of the Ozarks. Thank you to all of you who remember you are a part of a village. We greatly
appreciate those who go the extra mile to make their home and this community what it is. With that being said…. A
special thanks goes out to Rita Thacker and Linda Durben who have gone above and beyond with “the North East
Corner and Center Flower Area and Flag pole” of TLV by creating what Terry refers to as “RITA’S CORNER and
LINDA’S LANDING”. The decorations with rocks, bench, flag pole and flowers have created beautiful additions which
we greatly appreciate and all can enjoy. New exterior improvements have also occurred at Kevin Mauk’s + Bob & Chris
Eslinger, and Lynn & Sheri Shearer homes that present a fresh and clean look….THANK YOU!
16. LOST BUT NOT FORGOTTEN: This past year we lost two residents…..Dan Torello and Wilbur Johnson.
Dan had lived at TLV only a few years but had made many friends and always presented a smile and a great
disposition. Wilbur was a long time resident of over 20+ years – first as a weekender and then as a full time resident.
He left his mark on the people and TLV with all his hard work in homes via his plumbing experience and his willingness
to help his fellow residents. Wilbur helped the park & many residents with the long hours of lawn cutting and leaf
blowing for many; many years…..they will both be missed and remembered with fond memories.
17. SALE OF PARK HOMES-LIFTS-BOATS etc: In the past there have been occasional problems surfaced by park
residents as to “the priority in line to purchase” concerning the sale of a home, boat or lift, etc.
TO BE VERY CLEAR….any item that is intended to remain in the park or on park property….the transfer will be
processed ONLY BY THE PARK…PERIOD! This is done in order to keep the peace in situations where multiple
residents are interested. If multiple residents are interested in an item, the transfer will be handled in a professional
manner, transparent to all those involved in the process.
HAVE A SAFE AND HAPPY SUMMER…..
TERRY, MINDY, JUSTIN, LISA, and MACKENZIE
