biggest decisions to come out of tonight's sioux city city council meeting.% the council also unanimously approved a contract to do 2 point 2 million dollars' worth of repairs to the police and fire headquarters building downtown. that building was only built in the late 1980s... but has long suffered from issues with mold, plumbing and electrical problems and foundational cracks. work on renovations to correct some of those problems and make the building more energy efficient in the process will begin right away. city officials expect the project to take about a year and a half to complete. the council also agreed to spend 45- thousand dollars to study the future development of the the area where the argosy casino was once docked. the consultant doing the study will come up with a master plan for chris larsen park and the surrounding area... which will be submitted to the public for consideration. mayor bob scott says it's important that the public has a say in the future of the riverfront. "i think that the process should be that the citizens have input first and then take it to the
10:01 pm
different planning deals to have them put it on paper. it's important to me that citizens have some input and we have something down there that we can be proud of for years to come." one possible use for the area will be to develop an r- v park on the iowa side of the missouri river... to compete with the scenic park r- v park in south sioux city. and after years of delays and debate... the council has given the final go-ahead to tear down an old mansion in sioux city's rose hill district. the developer... jim gengler... appeared before the council numerous times after the home on grandview boulevard was deemed unsafe to live in in 2013. the vote to move forward with the demolition was three to two. diana>> it's a legal decision that's caught a lot of people off guard...and angered many... including the victim's family. a judge has reduced the sentenced for an orange city women who was sent to prison for the death of a child who was in her care. rochelle sapp was sentenced to 100- years in prison... after pleading guilty to involuntary manslaughter and child endangerment resulting in death

autumn elgersma. she got 50- years for each count... which were to be served *consecutively*... or one- after- the- other. thursday... the judge in the case changed sapp's 50- year prison terms to be served *concurrently*... or at the *same time*. we reached out to autumn's mother...who tells us, she's in disbelief. jen elgersma autumn's mother (phoner)>> "it was a complete punch in the gut and it came totally unexpected. i had no idea that was something that the judge could even do. so when we found about the cut and the sentence, we were shocked. i don't know how else to describe it." in his order... judge edward jacobson says he reconsidered the sentence by his own choice... noting that sapp had no prior record and had been a iowa law allows judges to reconsider a sentence within one year of sentencing. the change means sapp will be

she was previously looking at. larry>> the f- a- a is planning to start registering recreational drones users. a department of transportation task force will start registrations as soon as this holiday season. officials say the idea is to create a "culture of accountability" to keep up with the skyrocketing popularity of drones. safety has been a concern recently... with drones flying too close to commercial jets, crashing at sporting events... even plummeting into the white house lawn. locally... the f- a- a decision could have an impact on a partnership between morningside college, south sioux city's martin field, and the whiting community school district that trains people how to safely use one of the course instructors says the new rules strike an important balance. "they have been working on this thing for quite a while, i think that there close to having something that will be balanced between the hobby user, the commercial user, and the faa as far as registering them and
10:04 pm
keeping everything safe." he also says the drone industry isn't thrilled with the new rules... but does realize something needs to be done. larry>> it may seem early to be talking about taxes. but a local program is already seeking volunteers for the upcoming tax season. the volunteer income tax assistance program... or vita (vee-tuh)... is seeking volunteer tax schedulers, the program provides help to low-to-moderate income families who need assistance filing their taxes. volunteers helped 15- hundred siouxland residents file during the last tax season. "the program is 100% volunteer-run so without volunteers the program does not happen. we serve a lot of people and it takes a lot of volunteers to make that happen." if you'd like to become a volunteer, you can go to the center for siouxland at 715 douglas street in downtown sioux city. we also have more information in this story on our website siouxland news dot com. diana>> tonight was red ribbon nit at the long lines family rec center. red ribbon week is actually october 23rd to the 31st, but

dangerous, so moderation is key. stephanie small mercy medical center>> "overall in general it's just important to have a little bit of everything in moderation. trying to find a diet that you can follow for a lifetime is important because any diet that you go on, once you go off the diet, you'll probably gain the weight back." cat taylor siouxland news>> for siouxland news, i'm cat taylor. diana>> peanuts and peanut butter are another high- protein option for people on meatless diets. diana>> the royals have a chance to move within one win of the world series. see if they could pull it off after the blue jays put them in a big hole early. and all four sioux city high schools have a chance to make the playoffs. chris breaks down the scenarios and checks in with

steffen. sports is next. (siouxland sports with sports director chris neyenhouse.) this week we'll be crowning several siouxland playoff teams. but did you know that all four sioux city high school football teams are still alive for postseason berths. yeah i'm talking about one and seven sioux city north. if they beat des moines east, and beat them by a lot they could be in as long as council bluffs thomas jefferson loses. and 2 and 6 west is in if they beat des moines hoover. sioux city east plays johnston for a shot at the 2-seed and an opening round home game. but they would need lewis central to lose if that happens. if east loses they could drop down to fouth setting up an opening round matchup at dowling catholic. as for bishop heelan, win lose or draw they're the two seed in 3a district 1. with a likely home matchup against b-h/rv. but coach steffen and the crusaders are focused on their matchup with 1 and 7 le mars friday night. he says you throw out the records when you play them.
