Vander Berg Begins Role on City Council

Man raises hand for oath

A lifetime Sioux Center resident and local bank president took his oath of office to join the Sioux Center City Council this week.

Dale Vander Berg was sworn in by Mayor David Krahling at the council’s first 2020 meeting, held Jan 2. He was elected in November 2019 to a four-year term for an at-large council seat, which represents Sioux Center as a whole.

“I am looking forward to serving in this role,” Vander Berg said. “Sioux Center has a long history of having visionary leaders that are progressive and make good decisions for the benefit of the citizens of Sioux Center. I will need to learn from the current and past council members as I take up this new endeavor.”

Vander Berg has been president of People’s Bank in Sioux Center for 21 years and has also been a volunteer firefighter for more than two decades. He serves on the Sioux Center Health Building Committee and served from 2004-2019 on the Sioux Center Board of Adjustment. Vander Berg grew up in Sioux Center and graduated from Dordt College, now Dordt University, in 1991. He and his wife, Amy, and their two children live in Sioux Center.
