Mayor's Message

Dear Residents and Visitors,

Tropical Storm Emily disappeared as quickly as she came in. This was a good reminder for us to make sure we have all supplies ready for the current hurricane season. You can view our hurricane preparedness webpage or Pinellas County's  Emergency Management website to help get your hurricane plan in place.

Please see some important messages below.

Baby Turtle Rescue

​Turtle Season

Kudos to Indian Shores' Police Officers Patsch and Holm for assisting Pinellas County Sheriff's Office in saving over a dozen newly hatched sea turtles who got confused and ended up in a parking lot, pool area and under a vending machine.

Turtle nesting season extends through October 31. Keep an eye out for more nests to hatch in the near future.

Whether you are a resident or a visitor, please remember to take beach chairs, tables, canopies, etc. off our sandy beaches at night, so these items won’t block sea turtles attempting to nest. Please be careful not to disturb nesting sea turtles by getting too close, shining lights on them or taking flash photos.

Umbrellas and Tents Should Not be Left Overnight on the Beach

Reminder -
Town Ordinance Sec 106.90 states that you cannot leave umbrellas, canopies, volleyball nets, chairs, lounges, tents, etc., on the beach overnight (between the hours of 10 pm - 6 am). Please let your renters know that we will be red tagging property  and confiscating items left overnight on the beach. Violators will be issued a citation which carries a Class III Violation - Fine $143.00.
