Residents Recommit to Serving on Local Boards

0H0A0803 FOR WEB

Eighteen residents have been approved for re-appointment to city boards, committees and commissions. Their voluntary service includes boards such as the Park Board, Low Rent Housing, the Library Board, the Recreation & Arts Board, Heritage Board, and more.

The Sioux Center City Council approved re-appointment for: 

  • Les Brommer and Lyle Vermeer to the Park Board; 
  • Jim Harskamp, Kristi Hoogendoorn, and Darren Raih to Low Rent Housing; 
  • Lynn Van Beek, Lisa Dykstra and Ruth Clark to the Library Board;
  • Gary McEldowney, Eric Vande Hoef, and Matt Drissell to the Recreation & Arts Board;
  • Linda Altena, Colleen Van Berkum, Larry Te Grotenhuis, and Dennis Hoekstra to the Heritage Board;
  • Scott Wynja, Harold Schiebout, and Paul Clousing as representatives for the Sioux County Regional Airport.

“We are grateful for those who volunteer to serve on these boards and choose to invest back into our community and share the vision for Sioux Center’s future,” said City Manager Scott Wynja.

In total, more than 60 residents serve on city boards and commissions, ranging from the Planning & Zoning Board to the Park Board. Their terms vary from 2-5 years, depending on the board.

“This represents a ton of volunteer work and passion and commitment to things that help improve the city, and we’re deeply appreciative of the work these people do,” Mayor David Krahling said. 

Currently, there is one opening on the Recreation & Arts Board. Those interested in serving on that board or others in the future may contact the City Office at (712) 722-0761.

Krahling shared gratitude for the wisdom of long-serving members on the board, and he added that the council can complement that with future appointments, reflecting both that history and the community’s population, in terms of age, gender, and ethnic background.

“We can help by thinking about and encouraging people who may have an interest to serve,” Krahling said.
