Zoom Information

Reminder:  If you are attending the meeting via Zoom, you will need to keep yourself muted and need to identify yourself with first and last name.  

Moving into the New Year, we are upgrading our online payment processing system.  In order to ensure a seamless transition, online payments will be disabled from January 1-January 4.  Once the transition is complete, we will make the new system live and residents will be able to pay all bills and apply for boat license.  We thank everyone for utilizing the system we had in place and are hopeful that the new system will be even more user friendly.

THIS IS A PUBLIC NOTIFICATION FOR INDIAN LAKE BOROUGH. DUE TO THE HIGH VOLUME OF WATER USAGE, INDIAN LAKE BOROUGH IS ASKING ALL HOMEOWNERS TO INSPECT THEIR HOMES FOR ANY WATER LINE BREAKS OR LEAKAGES, AS WELL AS THEIR PROPERTY FOR ANY UNUSUAL WET AREAS FOR POSSIBLE WATER LEAKS. IF ANYTHING IS FOUND, PLEASE CONTACT THE BOROUGH OFFICE AT 814-267-4614 OR YOU CAN E-MAIL ME AT DEAN@INDIANLAKEPA.GOV.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP.

DEAN SNYDER, WATER OPERATOR

Indian Lake Borough increased yearly water rates in 2022 to $480 per year to pay for the new DEP-mandated Treatment Plant and Tank.  Construction activity started in the summer of 2021 and the new plant was permitted and put in operation in October 2022.  Debt will be repaid over 15 years.  The Borough placed a 2-year contract with G-Force to run the plant and perform routine maintenance.  It is expected that $480/year will cover the debt and this contract cost, and there is no rate increase for 2023.


For questions you can e-mail Dean@indianlakepa.gov or paul@indianlakepa.gov

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.

Weeds

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
