South Pekin receives a special gift to make electrical work safer

SOUTH PEKIN - The village of South Pekin received a very special gift today.  

Ameren donated a bucket truck to the village.

This 2006 Ford F-550 to help keep the village running smoothly and safely.  

Mayor Chad Lamberson says the donation will help benefit his community in many ways, "It gives us the ability to do projects around the village in a much safer and manageable way. Rather than have to go get ladders and do things manually the guys can actually do it from the controlled environment of the bucket which obviously is safer and will improve efficiency."  

South Pekin looks forward to using this truck to help with many outdoor projects.
