Gov. Holcomb Presents Check to Santa Claus

Town of Santa Claus receives it’s share of Community Crossings Grant From INDOT!

At a late afternoon meeting in Jasper, a room full of officials from Southern Indiana met to learn the results of the Community Crossings grant applications made earlier this year.

The Town of Santa Claus submitted five grant requests and all were approved by INDOT!

Work will  be accomplished in the next construction season. Most will be in the Holiday Village Subdivision.

This money represents 75% of the cost of those improvements and the town will pay the balance from local funds.

This grant brings the total received from the state from this program to nearly $250,000 over the past two years.

List of grants.




Radio Read Meters

Town of Santa Claus Water Department is fast on its way putting in new radio read meters.  Currently installing in the 4th & 9th subdivisions of Christmas Lake Village. 50% of the town business area is already installed, 90% of Holiday Village is installed. Meter installation will run into 2018, each year more and more radio reads will be installed as the budget allows.

2017 Community Crossings Projects Completed

With the final striping in place on Holiday Blvd., Ruby Winkler Drive and Burch Rd. the 2017 Community Crossings Grant is complete.

The project came in under the $113,000+ budget and we will be refunding some dollars to the state. The town’s share is half of the grant amount.

The Town is currently crossing it’s fingers as we await the results from this year’s applications which we hope to do some major work in Holiday Village roads, along with a couple of other projects.

This year’s application is for about $245,000 with the town’s share at 25%.
