Mayor's Message

Dear Residents and Visitors,

Our St. Patrick’s Day Festival is only three weeks away!  The vendor community seems to be growing back to what it once was pre-pandemic, so there will be a wide array of unique goods, products, services, food, drink and entertainment.  We look forward to seeing you all on Saturday, March 16th.   If you or someone you know would like to be a vendor, please submit the application soon as we have limited space remaining. 
Visit our dedicated St. Patrick’s Day Festival webpage for details.

Chief's Beat
Richard "Rick" Swann, Police Chief 

Last night we had the honor of representing the Indian Shores Police Department at Santa’s Angels charitable foundation’s Awards Banquet in Maderia Beach. The Foundations, President, Mike Brown presented the Indian Shores Police Department with their “Presidents Award” for our continued support and contributions to their mission. As part of the presentation President Brown noted that the Santa’s Angels Board unanimously voted to present us with this award based upon our remarkable “above and beyond efforts” toward helping them achieve a 133% increase in year over year contributions of cash and toys.

While we are extremely grateful to receive this recognition for our Police Department, we acknowledged that this achievement is a result of the cooperative efforts of both Town’s Leaders, and the numerous Citizens and Business Leaders who participate in and support our annual charity fund raising event.

Sempre Avanti,

Chief Swann
