HVL Ranked One of Safest Communities

#34 Safest Community in Indiana

Everyone wants to know that they live in a safe place! It provides a sense of comfort and security. Hidden Valley is one of the safest towns in the entire state of Indiana.

LendEDU recently released a report that highlighted the safest cities in Indiana and Hidden Valley was ranked as one of the safest.

Using licensed data, each city’s crime index was rated against the state and national average crime index. And, Hidden Valley has a crime index that makes it the #34 safest city in Indiana!

The full report and a more detailed methodology can be found here: https://lendedu.com/blog/safest-cities-state/

Congratulations to the POA, our Community Manager and especially our deputies!

About 30,000 Fathead Minnows Released in HVL

Fish & Game Club Stocks Fathead Minnows
How many minnows in a pound? You might be surprised to know that there are about 300 fathead minnows in one pound. Recently, the F&G Club purchased 101 pounds of these minnows from ATAC, the company that manages our lakes. All of their fish are certified to be healthy and free of unwanted species.

Conditions were not the best as it rained the entire time volunteers from the club took the roughly 30,ooo minnows from the company’s tanker truck and dispersed them to various locations around the main lake. The hope is that they will reproduce several times a year and provide a larger forage base for our game fish.

Weather Radios

Be Prepared – Stay Safe

For the Safety, Security, and Elections Committee article this month, I choose to cover weather radios.

As such, I am acutely aware of the destructive power of tornados. If you are in the path of a tornado, you need as much warning as possible to seek shelter. There are several ways to get this early warning. One of the best is a weather radio with alert capabilities. Read More…
