Snowmobiles and ATVs; Sharing the Road

Council enacted Ordinance 187 permitting joint use of Borough roadways for properly registered and operated and insured snowmobiles and ATVs. This Ordinance is permitted by recent changes in state laws and is viewed as important legislation for recreational and recreation-friendly communities such as ours.

The Ordinance is available by clicking the link below. There are many important provisions, restrictions, limitations and nuance in the Ordinance and, more importantly, the underlying state laws.

Golf Carts are specifically excluded from PA's ATV, Snowmobile or NEV regulations and provisions, and are thus NOT permitted under these ordinances.

Ordinance 187

Chapter 77 of the Motor Vehicle Code

Indian Lake Borough is increasing yearly water rates this year to $480 per year to pay for the new DEP-mandated Treatment Plant and Tank.  The major contract was awarded to Hickes Associates of Alexandria, PA (Huntington County), with the electrical work to Westmoreland Electric from Tarrs, PA (Westmoreland County). Award was contingent on obtaining a PENNVEST loan for ~ $1.5M and funding ~$700K  from cash reserves and immediate rate increases. Construction activity started in the summer of 2021 and should be done by July-August 2022.  Debt will be repaid over 15 years.

At our Town Meetings, Bill Kirkpatrick talks about our weeds.  Not all weeds are bad.  The weeds we deal with show we have a healthy, balanced Lake.  The 3 major weed types are covered in the links below:




Remember that different Lakes and bodies of water have vastly different environments.  Moving your boat/trailer between locations can be our biggest vulnerability to Indian Lake.  The following steps can greatly reduce the risk...

  • Dry your boat/trailer at least 7-10 days
  • Use a Chlorine/Bleach solution to rinse
  • Pressure Wash before launching in Indian Lake
  • Run Engine with boot/fresh water intake
