New Years Eve Safety Tips

If you are hosting a New Year's Eve party, following a few simple rules could prevent a tragedy:

  • Plan ahead by naming a "designated driver." Make this your responsibility as the host.
  • Contact a local cab company to provide rides for your guests.
  • Serve non-alcoholic beverages as an option to your guests.
  • Stop serving alcohol to your guests several hours before the party ends.
  • Provide your guests with a place to stay overnight in your home.

If you are attending New Year's Eve parties and celebrations:

  • If you drink, don't drive.
  • Plan ahead and always designate a sober driver before the party or celebration begins.
  • If you are impaired, call a taxi, use mass transit, or get a sober friend or family member to come pick you up.
  • Or, stay where you are until you are sober.
  • Take the keys from someone if you think he/she is too impaired to drive.

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.
