Council Approves Decrease in City Property Tax Rate

City Budget

The City of Sioux Center’s portion of the property tax rate will be decreasing slightly.

The Sioux Center City Council approved the lower tax levy rate, $11.165 per taxable $1,000, as part of approving the 2021-22 city budget this week. Last year, the rate was $11.2560 per taxable thousand.

The city’s tax rate is only about 33 percent of property owners’ total property taxes. The remaining 67 percent is for taxes levied by the county, local school and Northwest Iowa Community College.

The City of Sioux Center’s tax rate continues to rank among the lowest in Iowa communities similar in size and valuation to Sioux Center.

The city’s 2021-22 budget includes park improvements including updates to Westside Park, creation of a storm water detention pond near Meadow Creek, replacement of an emergency response vehicle, ongoing Highway 75 redesign engineering, and Fire Station #2.

“The City is able to continue the decade-long trend of not increasing the City tax levy rate and continue to provide a great place for people to live and work,” said City Finance Director Darryl Ten Pas.
