City Clerk/Human Resources

The City Clerk's office serves as your window to the City Council and City Hall. The Clerk's functions are broad and vital to the daily operation and welfare of the community. The City Clerk serves as a public information center for local government and is often the first office visited by persons moving into the area. The office serves as the keeper of the record with regard to official records of the City.

  • In charge and custody of all deeds, bonds, contracts, vouchers, books and papers belonging to the City.
  • Seals and attests all agreements and has supervision of contracts, bonds, obligations, loans, liabilities, accounts payable and accounts receivable.
  • Attends City Council meetings and keeps records of city council agendas, as well as the city council minutes.
  • Keeps all Ordinances and Resolutions indexed and in safe keeping and maintains updated codification of ordinances

  • Responsible for billing and collection of resident fees for utilities and utility appeals.
  • Should anyone wish to obtain a copy or view a public document other than Police and Fire records, they should complete a request form, which is available in the City Clerk's office and on-line.

 

City Treasurer

The City's budget is comprised of several funds. The general fund is responsible for providing public safety, parks & recreation, streets, and general administration. Combined utility funds include electric, water, sewer, and sanitation. The voter approved sales tax funds most of the City's capital improvements; such as street projects and panel replacements, the new library, park & rec. improvements, and police vehicles. This helps to keep the City's mill levy so low. The City is proud to announce that due to the growth of our community, we were able to decrease the mill levy to its lowest level in over 20 years. This is a great accomplishment, especially when other City's are increasing property taxes or cutting services to citizens.

 
 
The City has presented this material to inform the citizens of South Sioux City. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact myself at 494-7594 or email at nwalsh@southsiouxcity.org.
 
 

South Sioux City Fire Rescue

South Sioux City Fire Rescue is rich with history.  The department has been in service for over 100 years.  The building currently housing station one was built by founding members with brick donated by the local community. Housed in station two is a 1934 Ford pumper.  This pumper was a part of the original fleet and is still operational today.  During the summer you probably see it rolling down the road in the many parades.  Along with the historical buildings and equipment, the department boasts a long standing family tradition.  There are many past and current members who have had generations of family members file through the departments ranks.  With the progression of time however, comes the need to progress in abilities, equipment, and practices.  Like so many storied fire departments around the world, South Sioux City Fire Rescue is not immune to this.  October 2016 brought two of the biggest changes to date.  First, a new building is being constructed across the street from station one.  Once completed, it will be the new location of station one and administrative office.  Second, for the first time in its history the department has a full time fire chief.  Two other notable advancements are the hiring of full time staff in 2008 and the advent of paramedic services or Advanced Life Support (ALS) in 2015.  While the departments history has numerous amazing milestones which brought us to this point, the future for South Sioux City Fire Rescue is looking to be just as bright and exciting.
