Peoria's city council votes in favor of a proposal to land the LST 325 on the Illinois River.

Tonight, Peoria's city leaders approve a plan 7-4 offering the LST Board a five year contract to come to Illinois.

The plan offers an amount not to exceed $500,000 with the LST docking near the I-74 bridge, not on the downtown riverfront.

The council says with this vote proves Peoria can compete with Evansville. We will continue to follow this story.
