Loves Park mayoral candidate proposes east side fire station

LOVES PARK (WIFR) -- A Loves Park candidate for mayor says the city needs a new fire station.

John Pruitt says he wants to build that station on the east side. He says he's been pushing for it for a decade.

Pruitt says the city has the property and extra fire equipment; they just need to pay for the building. He would do that through money from the city's general fund.

Pruitt is running against Greg Jury. Both are current Loves Park alderman. Current Mayor Darryl Lindberg announced last year he won't run again.
