A local businessman who has served 12 years on the Sioux Center City Council was honored this week for his leadership and impact on the community.
Verlyn Rozeboom, who served on the council from 2008-2019, helped lead the community through many significant projects including the new Sioux Center Public Library, the Ridge Golf Course, Terrace View Event Center, Siouxnami Waterpark, the Sioux County Regional Airport, and many commercial and residential developments, utility and street improvements, and other facilities and programs to add to the quality of life in Sioux Center.
Rozeboom, who took office January 2008 and was re-elected in 2011 and 2015, was recognized by the City Council and presented with a plaque featuring a council resolution that recognizes his service.
The resolution states that Rozeboom liberally shared his time and talents with a full measure of devotion to the community of Sioux Center.
“His leadership and unselfish efforts have contributed to the progressive growth and orderly development of this community,” the resolution states. “He served with distinction and honor in the leadership positions that the community of Sioux Center entrusted to him.”
The resolution recognizing Rozeboom’s service was passed unanimously by the city council earlier this year.
