SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) – Sioux City may soon have a new art gallery in the downtown area.
The Sioux City City Council approved a development agreement for the former Karlton’s building. The “Art Sux Gallery” would also feature a coffee shop and space for a retail business to lease.
Under the proposed agreement, Luck LLC will invest $150,000 to renovate the property.
The city will then provide a 75% property tax rebate for a period of seven years. The total cost to the city would be around $26,000.
The city council also approved $5.7 million to fund the city infrastructure projects on Monday.
“Well there’s some parking overlays, there’s some new streets, new water lines. It’s a combination of a lot of infrastructure and it’s that time of the year where we start bidding a lot of that work. We are spending money contrary to what some citizens may think right now because they haven’t seen anything all winter but coming out of the blocks you’re going to see unfortunately a lot of streets getting closed because we’re to start gearing up for a lot of Spring construction.” says Sioux City Mayor Bob Scott
Some of the money will go towards repairing the waterlines and general road maintenance.
