Electric Department
The City of Sergeant Bluff provides electric to its citizens through its City-owned utility.  Sergeant Bluff is an 8-Megawatt customer who purchases its power from MEAN (Municipal Energy Agency of Nebraska) with additional allocation from WAPA (Western Area Power Administration).  Presently, there are four full-time linemen working for the community.  The City has 60% of its utilities underground and 40% of its utilities overhead.  The Electric Department is in the process of upgrading all electric metering systems to automatic meter reading systems.

The City offers a rebate program for appliances, furnaces, and electric hot water heaters that are energy efficient.  For more information on how to apply, contact City Hall at 712-943-4244.  Rebate applications can be found here: Energy Efficiency Incentive Program.

Water Department

Sewer Department

The City of Sergeant Bluff currently runs five sewer lift stations which pump throughout the system into a force main that flows to the Wastewater Treatment Plant located in Sioux City.  These lift stations are checked everyday and are equipped with the latest technology to ensure proper function.

The City of Sergeant Bluff has approximately 35 miles of paved streets.  The department is responsible for storm water maintenance, signage, street sweeping, pot-hole maintenance, and street snow removal.  There are many City ordinances that pertain to streets such as the Snow Ordinance.  The Snow Ordinance states that after 2 inches of snowfall, all cars must be removed from the streets until the snow plows have plowed curb to curb.  Do not blow snow into the street as blowing the snow into the streets puts your snow in your neighbor's driveway.

Compost Site
Residents are required to obtain an annual pass, free of charge, from City Hall prior to taking leaves and yard debris up to the Compost Site.  This will need to be renewed every calendar year.  Businesses will be required to purchase an annual pass for $150.00 to utilize the compost site.  Please read and complete the form and return it to City Hall to receive your pass.

The Compost Site is open Wednesdays from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. from April to November.

Trash is accepted at the site for a nominal fee.  The grass and brush collection center is provided for local residents at no charge.  Trees and brush can be disposed of at this site as well.  The entrance to the site is located at the intersection of South Lewis Blvd and South Ridge Road.  Appliances are accepted for a $10.00 fee.  Such appliances include the following:  refrigerators, freezers, commercial coolers, air conditioning units, dehumidifiers, gas water heaters, furnaces, clothes washers and dryers, dishwashers, microwave ovens, and other items that contain mercury switches, refrigerant or PCB.  Call City Hall at 712-943-4244 for more information.

Items NOT ACCEPTED at the site include:  electronics, batteries, paint, broken concrete, asphalt, used oil, bricks, tires, recyclable goods, fluorescent light bulbs, treated lumber (with creosote, such as railroad ties), gas and oil filters and containers, and solvents or cleaners.
