Truncate table/create index permissions with dynamic sql

I need to be able to use dynamic sql to truncate tables and create indexes.  Two different stored procs are involved.  One simply does a truncate table, using dynamic sql and a table name parameter.  The other just creates an index on a column, using dynamic sql and an a table name parameter.  This is related to a batch process; there are a group of identical tables involved.

The problem is that once the stored proc uses dynamic sql, there is not sufficient permission to do the truncate or create index.  How do I assign permissions so that the batch process account can do the truncate and create index?

make the batch process account a dbo of the Db involved?

Could do that, but I thought it would be better if possible to grant specific permissions for these functions - truncate table and create index.

How about creating a role in that DB and put the user into that role.
Give the role permissions to delete from the table and create inddexes.
From BOL...

Permissions
CREATE INDEX permissions default to the sysadmin fixed server role and the db_ddladmin and db_owner fixed database roles and the table owner, and are not transferable.

There is a role being used.  I did a Grant All on the table to that role, but that doesn't allow Create Index.

How do I make this role the owner of the table?

Delete will work, but I want to do a truncate to minimize what's written to the log.  There are a lot of records involved.

Permissions
TRUNCATE TABLE permissions default to the table owner, members of the sysadmin fixed server role, and the db_owner and db_ddladmin fixed database roles, and are not transferable.
