There is a serious problem when the public’s business is discussed out of the public’s view.

The Iowa Communities Assurance Pool, or ICAP, is a government insurance program that proudly proclaims it is owned and operated by nearly 800 public entities in Iowa, including cities, counties, intragovernmental entities, transit authorities, county fair boards and more.

The organization is officially endorsed by the League of Cities and Association of Counties. Its board of directors is composed of representatives from local governments.
