Lake Quality Report

We routinely study the quality of the waters of Indian Lake to make sure we have balance between our diverse recreational uses.  Not too slimy for swimming, enough nutrients for healthy fish/fishing, and not too many nutrients (primarily phosphorus) for the weeds to take over.  The latest survey was conducted last summer.  The short report is that the Lake remains in great shape.

Trash Service Contract Renewal

The current 3-year contract with Waste Management ends in June.  We can either renew it under the same terms or go out for competitive bid.  Council is not aware of widespread issues and will renew the contract, barring any clamor to the contrary.  You are welcome to submit complaints/issues to Council and we can either take them up with WM or prepare a bid-package to get competitive bids.
Proposed Roadway Name Change
 
Indian Lake Drive, the entrance road to the Borough, from the arched metal sign at Route 30 to the stop sign at North Shore Trail, is planned to be officially renamed as Peninsula Drive by Resolution at the March meeting of Borough Council.  The purpose of this name change is to resolve confusion on the part of Emergency and First Responders over the similarly named Indian Drive entrance to the Borough at the Comcast building near Reels Corner.  Indian Lake Drive would no longer exist and would become Peninsula Drive, a logical and straightforward extension of the current roadway so named.  Peninsula Drive will thus go from its beginning at the intersection of South Shore Trail and Entrance Drive, out and around the peninsula, and northward all the way out to Route 30.  New signs will be forthcoming, following official enactment.  There are no homes/addresses along this stretch.
Annual Drinking Water Quality Report

Each year our drinking water is tested and the resulting report must be issued by April 1st of the following year.  The link below will take you to a copy of the report for CY 2019, and dated 3/31/2020.  A copy will be mailed in the coming weeks to every residence served, as required.

Community Bonfire at Shoshone Park

Borough Council would like to extend an invitation to our residents and friends.  We have a great public park that we would love to see used more by the community, so what better way to beat the winter blues by getting together with our friends and neighbors for a “Happy Hour Bonfire”?  On Friday, February 28 we welcome everyone to join us at Shoshone Park (by the stumps) for a bonfire, food, beverages and fun.
Councilman Curt Morgese promises to have the fire roaring by 6:30.  Bring a snack, beverages and a log or two if you can spare.  We hope to see everyone there, and maybe we can make this a monthly event!
