SIOUX CITY (KTIV) - Two Siouxland cities may start seeing lower rates on their water bills. South Sioux City, Nebraska, and Dakota Dunes, South Dakota, each have contracts to purchase water from the city of Sioux City.

Members of Sioux City’s City Council had the first reading of an ordinance amending the 2022 water rates for South Sioux City and Dakota Dunes. That reading passed on a vote of 4-0.

The final two readings of the ordinance will take place at next week’s city council meeting. If those two readings pass, the new rates will then go into effect.

If the ordinance passes, the rates for South Sioux City will drop 5.9% percent, and the rates for Dakota Dunes will drop 7.6%. Councilmember Dan Moore says the agreement between the cities is a good partnership for everyone.

“So, the contracts are working. We have a formula that’s open and transparent. We have the inventory. We have the water supply. They’re paying their fair share for it. So, it makes the region stronger. The Siouxland area stronger, when we can work together with the adjacent cities,” said Moore.
