The Sioux City Council voted last night to approve ordinance changes that will raise Sioux City's sewer rates.

The increase, which will go into effect Aug. 1, will raise sewer rates for the sister cities by 10 percent and Sioux City's residential and commercial customers by 3 percent.

The City Council voted 5-0 yesterday for the ordinance that has been under consideration for the past two weeks. 

A Nebraska woman has been fined $1,000 for climbing the Mount Rushmore National Memorial in South Dakota.

Authorities say Alexandria Incontro scaled the massive granite sculpture Friday with bare feet and no rope, making it to about 15 feet (4.5 meters) from the top. e Rapid City Journal says Incontro chose a route between George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, whose faces are about 60 feet (18 meters) tall. Several signs at the popular tourist destination warn against trespassing on or climbing the sculpture, which was completed in 1941.
