The petition audit is still on going, it is expected to be a few months before the audit is done. 

The sales tax revenue appears to be only down a few percentage points. July and August were good months. Thanks to all who visited Indian Point this summer and the efforts of the businesses in getting visitors to the point.  

The new storm siren is operational. We will start testing it on Wednesdays once a month weather permitting. You will not actually hear the siren sound but will hear chimes. There should be a voice message which tells if it is a test or an actual storm warning. We are very fortunate to have our own siren; parts of the county no longer have sirens due to the commissioners cutting costs. Thanks go out to White River Electric for donating a pole and manpower. 

New businesses have opened this summer on Indian Point. The Crazy Cajun Citchen serving traditional cajun dishes. The Crazy Cajun is located at Lakeview Campground at 2820 Indian Point Road. Charleys Restaurant has a variety of menu items from ribs to burgers. Charleys is located at Rock Lane Resort. Just 1 More is a bar and restaurant located at 1056 Indian Point Road. 

We have a new member on the TCED board her name is Michelle Herzon from the Bavarian Village Resort here on Indian Point. Michelle replaces Kent Turner who term expired. Welcome Michelle and thanks Kent for your service on the board. 

The lights at our heli-pad have been replaced and are now operating. Thanks to Larry Stenzil for replacing the lights. 

A big THANKS to all of the folks who donate and volunteer their time to help the village out.
