Fox River trustees approve plan to move third fire station
Feb 25, 2013 11:17 PM - Taxpayers served by the Fox River & Countryside Fire/Rescue District could see better service times as soon as this fall, according to a plan approved Monday night to build a third fire station that will take advantage of two key Fox River crossings. Trustees approved a $150,000 purchase of 2.2 acres of land at 6N330 Route 25 in unincorporated Kane County near St. Charles. The site is the former home of the old Wise-Hamlin Plastic Factory. Though not technically a short sale, the property is bank land after a $654,000 judgment against the former land owner.
