Springfield aldermen approved the consent agenda which means a new fire truck, gateway improvements for the Madison/Jefferson crossover, and a preliminary sketch map of the West-side Schnuks, among others.
The fire truck is a 100 foot ladder truck that the city had originally estimated would cost $1.2 million, but instead are purchasing for $887,000.
Several ordinances deal with improvements to the Clear Lake and the Madison-Jefferson crossover.
The project is designed by Massie and Massie Associates and is funded mainly by a pass-through IDOT grant using federal monies. A 20% match is being funded with Springfield Green donated funds.
