City Council Approves TIF Grant; Radig Leaves Council
The Sioux City Council agreed to cooperate with the Woodbury County Board of Supervisors and offer tax increment financing to Gelita USA. The company is located outside of the city limits along Port Neal Road. It's planning to expand and add 21 new jobs.
In other business, the council approved an application for the state's Workforce Housing Tax Credit Program on behalf of Midnight LLC. The company plans to renovate and create apartments in the former Bekins building on Wesley Parkway and West Fourth Street.
The Council also said farewell to member Keith Radig yesterday. Radig was elected to the Woodbury County Board of Supervisors last month Radig said that being on the council was a great experience.
“All in all, I really appreciated serving the city, it’s a labor of love, I absolutely love local government and I guess that makes me a real dork. But I really appreciate the support from citizens and staff and I will really miss it.”
The council plans to appoint a new council member early next year. Yesterday was the last meeting of the year.
