Mayor's Message

Thank you for visiting the Amery “City of Lakes” website.  Be sure to check out our Facebook page!

My name is Paul Isakson and I am a long time Amery resident. I was educated in the Amery School District and graduated from UW-Eau Claire. My wife Kate and I have been married for 30 years.  Our 3 daughters also attended the Amery school system.

I followed my father into the family hardware business in 1978 and together with my brothers, we have been in business in Amery and Polk County for 49 years and I am now retired. Some of my accomplishments are Past President of the Amery Community Club, founding member of the Amery Economic Development Corporation, and member of the Planning, Airport and Tourism Commissions.

As Mayor, I look forward to growing tourism, jobs, and housing.

Our assets include an excellent school district, hospital, an 18-hole golf course, in-town camping facility, airport, many municipal parks, 3 lakes, a river, and 2 State Trails – one motorized and one non-motorized.

Please feel welcome to join us here in Amery and enjoy the Amery Experience.

-Mayor Paul Isakson
