“We are grateful for those who volunteer to serve on these boards and choose to invest back into our community and share the vision for Sioux Center’s future,” said City Manager Scott Wynja.
In total, more than 60 residents serve on city boards and commissions, ranging from the Planning & Zoning Board to the Park Board. Their terms vary from 2-5 years, depending on the board.
“This represents a ton of volunteer work and passion and commitment to things that help improve the city, and we’re deeply appreciative of the work these people do,” Mayor David Krahling said.
Currently, there is one opening on the Recreation & Arts Board. Those interested in serving on that board or others in the future may contact the City Office at (712) 722-0761.
Krahling shared gratitude for the wisdom of long-serving members on the board, and he added that the council can complement that with future appointments, reflecting both that history and the community’s population, in terms of age, gender, and ethnic background.
“We can help by thinking about and encouraging people who may have an interest to serve,” Krahling said.
