The Indiana Public Employers’ Plan, Inc. (IPEP) is excited to announce the Town of Santa Claus as a recipient of its 2019 Safety Grant Award. IPEP is proud to partner with the Town of Santa Claus and Dale State Agency to maximize opportunities to promote a safe work environment and assist with stretching their risk management resources. The grant funds will be used to purchase safety equipment or safety training programs that will reduce or limit workers’ compensation exposure.

IPEP was created in 1989 as a risk-sharing pool for public entities, as a response to the need for public employers to find affordable workers’ compensation coverage. IPEP has grown to provide workers’ compensation claims administration for more than 700 public entities including cities, towns, counties and schools.

The  Town of Santa Claus Comprehensive Plan was adopted nearly a quarter of a century ago. Certainly, many things have changed since that time. The Plan acts as a guide for future decision making and is a required element in many grant and other funding initiatives.

The Town is currently updating that plan and wants to incorporate the thoughts of residents regarding the town’s future.

Survey closes January 31, 2019 at 4:00PM.
