At a currently estimated population of 16,071, Indianola is a growing city located just minutes south of Iowa's capital city of Des Moines and within 15 minutes of the Des Moines International Airport.

Reporting to a five-member Board of Trustees, the IMU General Manager is responsible for leading all aspects of IMU operations.
