This Week in the Corridor
Call for Nominations

The nominating committee of the Iowa Lakes Corridor Board of Directors invites members to submit names of possible candidates for board seats from Dickinson and Emmet counties.
The Corridor board includes 16 directors, four each from the four counties the organization serves. Directors are drawn from members of the organization in good standing. For a list of members, click here. Terms are three years and directors can serve no more than two consecutive full terms.
The nomination committee will present a slate of candidates to the full board of directors in April. The list is not limited to the candidates suggested by the general membership. The board will then prepare a ballot for the annual election held in May. All Corridor members are encouraged to vote in the annual election.
To submit a name to the nominating committee, please send an email to Kiley Miller,, by 5 p.m. March 31, 2019.
A shout out to the road crews

It took my boys and I an hour
 to shovel the driveway Wednesday morning, but it only took me 20 minutes to drive from my house to work. Along the way, I passed through four road jurisdictions: Arnolds  Park, Dickinson County, Milford, State of Iowa, and Spencer. Not once did I slip, slide or swear. 

For that I have to congratulate the dudes-and presumably dudettes-who rise when the snow falls and climb into plow trucks. They keep rolling until the job is done, clearing the way so that the rest of us can get to the office, drop the kids off at school, or make that spin class.
This winter has been apocalyptic. From 29-below in Estherville to near white-outs on US 71. All the while the roads have stayed open. So here's a big, hearty thank you to every road worker operating in Buena Vista, Clay, Dickinson and Emmet counties. We, your fellow motorists, may not always remember to say it, but you truly are appreciated.

-Kiley Miller, President & CEO
