On Tuesday, March 17, Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds escalated the state's response to the coronavirus outbreak by banning public gatherings of 10 or more people for 30 days.
In following the Governor's proclamation and with the best interests for the health and safety of our member-owners and employees, your board of directors canceled its regularly scheduled April 4 Annual meeting at the Clay County Regional Events Center in Spencer, Iowa.
While the regular scheduled Annual Meeting was canceled, a remote only meeting is scheduled for Friday, April 17, at Iowa Lakes Electric Cooperative's headquarters' facility, starting at 10 AM. Again, this will be a remote-only, business-only, conference call meeting. All special guests, keynote speakers, food and gifts will be eliminated from the meeting.
The Cooperative's office building will remain locked to the membership and public during this year's annual meeting to limit the potential spread of COVID-19 to protect our member-owners, employees and the public from the possible spread of the virus.
Member-owners wishing to participate in the annual meeting, can use their phones and dial into the conference call and listen to the business reports and the results of the election. The conference call information is below.
Iowa Lakes Electric Cooperative's members should have received their ballots in the mail. We ask members to please fill out the Ballot for Director at the bottom of the form and return by mail or place in our drop box located in front of the office at our headquarters by April 15. Any ballots received after April 15 will not be counted.
Your Cooperative employee team remains committed and available to our member-owners. Our phones remain answered 24/7 by calling 800-225-4532, and we continue to provide power outage restoration services. In addition, we offer many services, such as several payment options for your convenience.
