Sioux Center, Iowa — Between 100 and 150 people were on-hand on Wednesday morning to witness a groundbreaking on a major project in Sioux Center.
Sioux Center Community School District Superintendent Gary McEldowny tells us more about the groundbreaking for what will become the new Sioux Center High School in eastern Sioux Center, north of the Sioux County Fairgrounds.
He says the bids for the facility were very close to the estimate.
Superintendent McEldowny says that 90 percent of the project will be completed by companies within a 90-mile radius of Sioux Center and 72 percent of the construction work will be done by Sioux Center companies. He says they’re very pleased about that.
He tells us that two full school years will go by before the facility is projected to open in summer 2021. The first classes in the new high school will start there in the 2021-22 school year.
