EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

City council members in Peoria, Illinois are meeting Tuesday night to decide among other things, whether to seek a contract to lure LST-325 away from Evansville.

The meeting is scheduled to begin at 6:15 p.m. Tuesday in Peoria.

LST board members have told 14 News if they stay in Evansville, they would like to change the docking location of the ship.

Both cities are putting together packages for the LST board to consider.

Board member Chris Donahue says a decision will be made by July 31.

Evansville's 10 year contract with the World War II ship expires in 2015.
