On December 13, 2014 members of the Sioux City Police Department spent the day shopping for Christmas presents with 30 Sioux City kids.  This is the 12th year the Sioux City Police Department has partnered with the local WalMart stores to help make Christmas brighter for kids and their families.  WalMart donates the money, $100.00 per child and the police officers shop with the kids.  Each child spends the money on gifts for his/her family members. The gifts are then wrapped by members of the police department's VIP program.  Each kid is then surprised with a new bike and helmet, both donated by the Variety Club.  Thank you to WalMart for the generous donation!

Big Sioux River Flood Control

Big Sioux River Flood Control

As a result of recent heavy rainfall north of Sioux City, the Big Sioux River is expected to continue to rise over the next several days. The levels within the Big Sioux River are expected to result in flood gate closures and will require that the City enact levee extension actions as detailed in the City Levee System and Flood Control Plan.

The extension actions associated with this plan require the additional temporary levee structures be constructed on River Drive in the Riverside area. The levee structure will only impact 3-5 houses in the area. Individuals living in these homes have been contacted directly to explain the impacts of this construction. If you have not been contacted you are not directly impacted by the construction of this levee extension.

The levee extension will be built in River Drive beginning today. River Drive will be closed to thru traffic from Goldie Avenue to Beck Street until Friday, June 27th. Your patience with this work is appreciated. Please contact the office of Public Works with questions at 279-6222.
