Sioux City is the first in the state to install a wheelchair charging station.

OC……other than their home. :16
City Council member Alex Watters is wheelchair bound and says he’s proud the city is one of the first in the nation to provide the service:

The Centers for Disease Control provided a grant to Sioux City and nine other communities across the country for the project.
