Welcome to The Exchange on Siouxland Public Media. I’m Mary Hartnett.  Last week, the administration announced that it would phase out the Deferred Action for Child Arrivals, or DACA program if Congress failed to intervene in the next six months.  The announcement left many DACA dependent immigrants panicking about their status.

This week on The Exchange, we hear from the candidates for the Sioux City school board elections, which are being held September 12th.  We held a roundtable discussion at the Sioux City Public Museum on Wednesday, August 30th.    This program is part of Siouxland Public Media's collaboration with the League of Women Voters of Sioux City.  The league is holding its public debate with the candidates on Tuesday, September 5th from 7:00-8:30 p.m. at the City Council chambers in downtown Sioux City. The debate and forum is free and open to the public.

City Council to Revisit Fireworks Ordinance

Jul 7, 2017

On Monday, the Sioux City Council will reconsider its ordinance that allows several days for residents to discharge fireworks. The Iowa legislature legalized the private use of fireworks and cities in April.  Sioux City currently allows fireworks from June 25th until the 4th of July.   This morning at a city news conference, city councilor Dan Moore said he believed that the city allowed too many days for people to set off fireworks.
