Evansville, LST 325 signs new contract

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - LST-325 is staying in Evansville.

Mayor Lloyd Winnecke signed a lease document Thursday with the LST Board of Directors, which will keep the ship in Evansville for the next five years.

Peoria, Illinois was another location being considered.

The lease allows the ship to move to the Tropicana Riverboat spot once the casino moves on land, after a vote by the LST board.
