A city-owned lot in northwest Sioux Center may be sold to Habitat for Humanity.
The Sioux Center City Council set a public hearing for April 16 to consider the sale of the city-owned residential lot near the north end of 8th Ave. NW to the organization.
Habitat for Humanity has asked to purchase the lot from the city so the organization can move an existing home to the site, which is in the area of Westbrook Village.
The organization may then sell the house to raise funds for internal operations, according to Sioux Center Development Director Dennis Dokter.
“The Habitat for Humanity organization provides a great service and we are happy to work with them on a project that can enhance their services,” Dokter said.
