​The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) today announced Somerset County Maintenance Forces will begin work on Monday, June 6, on the Route 1006 (Causeway Drive) over Stonycreek Lake concrete deck overlay in Stonycreek Township, Somerset County.

Work will consist of milling 1" of the existing deck, drill anchors into the top of the deck and pour a new 4" concrete deck.

A three-to-four-week detour will be in place while this work occurs. The detour will follow Route 1006 (Causeway Drive), Route 1001 (Bridge Street), Route 1004 (Cornerstone Road), and Route 160 (Huckleberry Highway).

All work on this $10,000 project is expected to be completed by July 2022.

From the Police Department

The Indian Lake Police Department would like to extend their appreciation and a thank you to the community in their effort in helping to ensure the signs that were stolen over the weekend were located.  The signs have been returned.
Chief Bellak is going to begin scheduling Handgun Safety Courses for those that expressed interest last summer.  If anyone is interested in taking the Handgun Safety Course, please email Chief Bellak at policechief@indianlakepa.gov.
Garbage

A friendly reminder to residents that all garbage bags should be placed in cans, to prevent animals from being able to get into the bags and cans should be returned back to your house after pickup. Waste Management does offer a backdoor pickup option, if you leave after the weekend, consider signing up for backdoor pickup option to ensure that your garbage cans are not left at the road and risk being blown around and becoming a hazard on the roads.
Council Meeting

The June Council meeting will be held at the Borough Office and via Zoom (using the link below) at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, June 8th.  The agenda is also linked below.

June 8 Agenda
Borough Speed Limit is 30 mph
 
Now that summer is in full swing, the borough roads are very busy.  We’re seeing our usual spike on the weekends.  We’re also experiencing a sizable increase in weekday traffic, including large construction vehicles, supply and equipment deliveries, and workers.  On top of the added traffic, just about everyone is in a hurry because we all have too much to get done in a limited amount of time.
 
Unfortunately, vehicles traveling 10, 15, or even 20 mph above the speed limit are not uncommon.  The sad thing is, since travel distance in the borough is so short, the extra speed will only reduce arrival time by “seconds,” not minutes or hours.  It’s just not worth potentially hitting a person, a pet, a deer, or another vehicle.  PLEASE, SLOW DOWN!  If you have contractors working at your property, kindly ask them to mind the speed limit in the borough.

Thank you!  Jay McClatchey, Mayor
Water Treatment Plant Update

The construction of the water treatment plant is approximately 94% complete. We are awaiting final connection of a few instruments that were delayed in delivery but are on site now. The plant has been through start up and is capable of producing water now.

Once Instrumentation is complete, the Engineer on behalf of the Borough will submit the certificate of completion for the project to DEP.
 
The Engineers states work necessary to get the Certificate of Completion is expected to be complete mid-June. For Reference, our DEP mandated date for Completion is July 30.
 
Once the Borough receives our operating Permit, we will begin distributing treated water.  Note that the water system will require multiple flushing’s to purge the entire system , so please be patient as this will be on going for months to come.
 
Please contact me with any questions.
