SOUTH SIOUX CITY, Neb. (AP) - A group building a $75 million residential development in South Sioux City says it’s not worried about a long-running odor problem that has forced more than two dozen families to leave their homes in a nearby neighborhood.

The Sioux City Journal reports (https://bit.ly/2llDANc ) Ho-Chunk, the economic development division for the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska, is still moving ahead with its 200-acre development. The project could include up to 400 single-family homes, 600 apartments and a 67,000-square-foot village center.

Ho-Chunk chief investment officer Dennis Johnson says the group believes the city will resolve the odor problems.

Some homeowners are threatening to sue the city and Big Ox Energy, which was initially blamed for hydrogen sulfide gas emanating from a sewer line that more than 30 homes shared with a biogas plant.
