SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WTVO) — A push is underway to keep an iconic piece of the Illinois State Fairgrounds at its home.
The state fair slide is up for sale. A number of prospective buyers are talking about dismantling and moving it, but Springfield city leaders said not so fast to that move.
The city council is voting on a plan Tuesday to collect $30,000 to sponsor the slide. This would help pay to keep it in the same place it ha been since 1968.
