|Bicycle Friendly Employer Award|
|Tuesday, 18 April 2017 09:59|
The Siouxland Interstate Metropolitan Planning Council (SIMPCO) and Siouxland District Health Department have partnered together to create a Bicycle Friendly Employer award. The award recognizes employers that have made admirable strides in creating a bicycle friendly environment for their employees and customers. Bicycling to work is something that should be encouraged due to its many health, environmental, and financial benefits. Bicycles provide a form of exercise, produce no emissions, and save commuters money on gas and other vehicle expenses. It is important to recognize businesses which are encouraging such an important choice.
Applications for the Bicycle Friendly Employer award are now being accepted. Applications are due by noon on May 1, 2017. The winning employer will be recognized at the city press conference at 10:00 a.m. on May 12, 2017. The application is available online at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/2017BikeFriendlyEmployer. All employers are encouraged to apply.
