La Salle looking for new home for old fire truck

Posted by wlpo on October 6, 2016

If you’ve been through downtown La Salle you’ve probably noticed the historic fire truck on display at the corner of Second and Wright Streets.

The city is looking to build a permanent home for the truck, and they’re asking for your help. Mayor Jeff Grove says the proposed building would be at the corner of 5th and Sterling Streets. He says the move is to “preserve the historical value of the truck” as well as honor past firefighters in La Salle.

Donors will be recognized on a plaque on the exterior of the new building, when it’s finished. If you’d like to donate you can send in your donation with your water bill or drop it off at City Hall, located at 745 Second Street.
