Council Changes

 

At the June 11th meeting Charlie McCauley's resignation was announced and accepted by Council.  Scott Hollern was appointed to fill the vacancy on Council until the reorganization following the next Municipal Election [January 2016].  Scott is also a member of the Planning Commission.

Lynn Shimer was elected Council President.  Lynn has been a member of Council for a little over two years and serves as Chair of our Watershed/Environment Committee and as a member of the Finance Committee.

 
Valve Locator Posts

 

As a result of our efforts trying to narrow-down water leaks this year, and the difficulties we had locating them, we have installed a number of new isolation valves.  Also in the process we found and have replaced a number of defective curb-side shut-offs for residences.

It is necessary that these valves, and all curb-side shutoffs, be clearly visible or marked so they can be easily located in emergencies, and can be readily avoided by snow-plows, delivery trucks and guests who may need to park along the roadways/berms. 

The Borough has purchased metal posts/stakes intended for this purpose.  This was done a number of years ago and many have been removed or knocked over.  [Some were 'reportedly' removed by residents who considered them eyesores, but I can't see anyone doing that on purpose...]

Please make a note of where your curb-box is located and check regularly that the locator remains upright, visible and effective.  If it gets knocked over or removed, please report it to the Borough Office.

Thank you for your cooperation,

Frank Moldovan,
Superintendent

Weeds

At our Town Meeting, Bill Kirkpatrick talked 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
