SIOUX CITY (KTIV)- A resolution on changing the terms of where three surrounding communities send their sewage — will have to wait.
Over a week ago, the city of Sioux City sent South Sioux City, North Sioux City, and Sergeant Bluff notices regarding their Sewage Treatment Agreements.
Monday night at the Sioux City City Council Meeting, they were all supposed to discuss the possibility of terminating the individual agreements.
But before the meeting could even begin, Mayor Bob Scott said the discussion is deferred to February of next year.
Mayor Scott says it doesn’t matter when the discussion takes place — but many of the agreements are just too old and it’s time to start a fresh process.
“Hopefully the sister cities realize that we need to have honest, open discussion about what the costs are at that plan and how we’re going to pay for them,” said Sioux City Mayor, Bob Scott.
The date of that deferred meeting is February 4th, 2019.
One thing that was agreed upon tonight, was the estimated construction dates for the anticipated Aldi on Floyd Blvd. and Outer Drive.
Economic Developer Marty Doughtery says they plan to have construction start in 2019, and have the store up and running in 2020.
