Mid-Iowa Development Association (MIDAS) 
Council of Governments


The region that constitutes Mid-Iowa Development Association (MIDAS) consists of all of Calhoun, Hamilton, Humboldt, Pocahontas, Webster and Wright Counties, as well as the local governments within this area.

MIDAS Council of Governments is an intergovernmental agency (28E and 28H) that was created in response to common interests of governments and the need for cooperative approaches to solve area-wide issues. This cooperative venture is intended to help local governments improve their capacity to implement services by defining regional issues, problems, and opportunities; setting priorities and formulating policies, plans and programs to deal with them; and achieving efficient and effective action on area wide matters through communications, coordination, and cooperation.

Programs are voluntary as MIDAS does not have authority to bind its members, nor can it force adherence to any given plan or policy.

MIDAS Mission Statement:

The MIDAS cooperative venture is intended to help local governments improve their capacity to implement services by defining regional issues, problems, and opportunities; 
setting priorities and formulating policies, plans, and programs to deal with them; 
and achieving efficient and effective action on area wide matters through communications, coordination and cooperation. 
         The mission statement was developed in 1971 and has not been changed since.
