South Sioux City sells land to company bringing in jobs

Posted:
SOUTH SIOUX CITY, Nebraska (KTIV)- A sale of land in South Sioux City, Nebraska means 25 new high-paying jobs will come to the area.

The community's development agency approved the sale of just over 27 acres to an unnamed company.

The land is just across the highway from the Roth Industrial Park.    

The city still owes 100 thousand dollars on the land, but sold it for 548 thousand dollars.

While the city can't release the name of the business yet, they say the company will need skilled workers, increasing Siouxland's need for skilled workers even more.

"Clearly there's a big demand for additional skilled workers throughout the whole Siouxland area, and that's going to continue to be a problem for us in the future. Not only for South Sioux, but for the whole Siouxland area, and we need to address that and get more families and more people in here, which means we need more housing," Lance Hedquist, City Administrator said.

City Administrator Lance Hedquist says the city should be able to release the name of the company within the next sixty days.
