Podcast Ep. 11 - County Bond Series Ep. 4 - Adams County's Bond

Adams County, Iowa is one of, if not THE, smallest counties in the state. Yet the county conservation department's main park, Lake Icaria, generates over $600,000 annually in direct revenue with a local economic impact of $3-4 million. In this county of less than 4,000 people, 73% of voters in 2016 approved a $1.3 million bond referendum to invest in their favorite county park and economic engine. The Board of Supervisors added to it with other financing mechanisms resulting in well over $3 million invested in the park. 

In this episode, I talk with Adams County Conservation Director Travis Paul to see how it all came about and what impact these investments have made in their community.
