Iowa DOT seeking Summer Interns

Posted: Wed, February 27, 2013

Deadline is March 1

The Iowa Department of Transportation is thinking of spring and summer as the agency ramps up its recruiting of paid interns for the upcoming construction season.

The Iowa DOT is looking to hire 70 engineering interns at locations around the state, as well as 12 summer positions in other focus areas. Starting pay for these positions is $14.05 per hour. Applicants need to act quickly as the deadline to apply is close of business Friday, March 1. To apply, go to http://www.iowadot.gov/coopsandinterships.

To qualify, applicants must be full-time students at a college or university. Interviews for prospective students will be held March 11-15. If selected, each hiring office will contact the applicant to schedule an interview. Successful candidates will be notified the week of March 18. Start states (depending on school schedules) will be May 13 or May 20, and would conclude the Friday prior to the beginning of the fall semester.

In addition to the short-term internship positions, the Iowa DOT is also looking for two students to fill available co-op positions. The work commitment for these positions will be May to December, with one position in the Creston/Atlantic area and the other in the Iowa DOT's Office of Design in Ames.

The application process and hiring timelines are the same for these two positions as for the internships.

Community Workshops for "All-In" County Plan

Posted: Tue, September 25, 2018

Allamakee County is partnering with Upper Explorerland Regional Planning Commission (UERPC) to develop a new comprehensive plan for the County. Dubbed All In Allamakee, or the "All-In Plan" for short, the plan will consider a host of issues and topics that affect quality of life in the County, ranging from public infrastructure and housing to parks and transportation.

There are three upcoming community workshops for the All-In Plan that will be held in Postville, Lansing, and Waukon. At these workshops, attendees will help create a countywide vision for Allamakee County’s future through interactive community visioning activities. All residents of Allamakee County, as well as those who visit or work in the county, are invited and encouraged to attend

All workshops begin at 5:00 p.m. and will last about an hour and a half. There will be a brief presentation at the start followed by interactive activities. Members of the public are free to come and go at any time during the meeting, even if they miss the beginning. Light refreshments will be provided. The schedule for the three community meetings is below.

     • Postville: Tuesday, October 9th at UERPC offices, 134 West Greene Street
     • Lansing: Wednesday, October 10th at the Driftless Area Education and Visitor Center, 1944 Columbus Road
     • Waukon: Thursday, October 25th at the Senior Center at Waukon Wellness Center, 1220 3rd Avenue NW

Additionally, all residents of Allamakee County and those who visit or work in the county are invited and encouraged to give feedback on a broad array of issues by completing an online survey and a quick questionnaire. Visit the web addresses below to take the survey and answer the brief questionnaire.
