Final vote on deer feeding ban Monday

Posted:
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

Monday will mark the last time local residents can have their say over Sioux City's proposed ban on feeding deer and turkey.

The city's trying to reduce the population and cut down on car crashes.

A majority of council members supported the ban during its first two readings.  The final reading will come up this Monday.

The previous council turned down the ordinance in 2010.

"Because of the drought conditions there are a lot more deer in our community than there were even a year ago.  So, I think it's just to do what every we can to try to minimize that," Mayor Bob Scott explained.
