Peoria Hosts Public Meeting for LST 325

- This past weekend, LST 325 was front and center on Evansville's riverfront. But it could be one of the last times it sails the Ohio River. Next week, the Peoria City Council will determine if it wants to try and bring the LST 325 to Illinois.

Tonight, the people of Peoria had a chance to voice their opinions. The city held a public hearing. And while many are in favor of bringing the ship to Peoria, the main issue is location and the cost of building a new boat dock.

City council members will vote on a contract at next Tuesday's meeting. If approved, it will go to the LST board, which needs to make a decision by July.
