SIOUX CITY | For years, constituents seeking help in dealing with federal agencies, people receiving war medals and protesters who didn't like his policies visited the same downtown Sioux City office for U.S. Rep. Steve King.

Since he began his congressional career in 2003, King has maintained his office on the corner of Sixth and Nebraska streets. However, King's office on Monday will move to the Federal Building, a few blocks east at 320 Sixth Street.

King's office will be in Room 122 in the Federal Building, where Iowa's two U.S. senators, Chuck Grassley and Joni Ernst, also have offices.

“When I first selected a site for our Sioux City office, I picked a downtown, street level location so the office would be as accessible as possible to the public,” King said in a Wednesday release. “Relocating to the Federal Building preserves accessibility and offers constituents a closer proximity to our two U.S. Senators."

The current King office is in the historic Commerce Building.  However, last week a renovation plan was announced to convert the building into 76 apartments, retail space and modern offices in a $14.6 million project.

The Sioux City office business hours remain unchanged -- 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday thru Friday 

King. a Republican from Kiron, represents Iowa's 4th congressional district. His other district offices are in Spencer, Fort Dodge, Ames and Mason City.
