Put simply, the census will determine, for the next 10 years, how much of our federal and state tax $$ get returned to our County and our Borough. It is important.
Beginning August 11, households that have not responded to the 2020 Census online, by phone or by mail will begin to be visited by Census Takers.
- These workers will have taken an oath to keep respondents’ information confidential.
- They will conduct appropriately social distanced interviews to collect information from the residents.
- They will be from the communities in which they are working.
Take time to share the imminence of Census workers in your community with your residents. You can also remind your residents that if they respond, a Census Taker will probably not visit their house.
Below are links to web pages to provide information to residents and law enforcement.
It is not too late to complete your census online or by phone. Visit https://2020census.gov/

A message from Dean on water line flushing in preparation for July 4th Weekend:

Indian Lake Water Operator
Fireworks will be Saturday, July 4th, weather permitting. Per the long-range forecast:
Some clouds and possibly an isolated thunderstorm in the afternoon; High 82 degrees, Winds W at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of rain 30%.
Water Treatment Project
A permit request has been prepared and submitted to DEP for a second storage tank and a treatment plant, adjacent to the Cherry Lane Tank, for removal of iron and manganese from our drinking water. The project cost is expected to be just under $1.5 Million, and we hope to obtain a low-interest PennVest loan to pay for it. Repayment is expected to occur over the next 20 years or so and will be accomplished by increased rates. Rates are expected to go up between $100-$150 per year, beginning in 2021. Should you have questions, please contact Council@indianlakepa.us
