OGLESBY – The President of Illinois Valley Community College laid out what they hoped would be the future plans for the shared police station on their grounds. At Thursday’s meeting, Jerry Corcoran said that partnering with local law enforcement on this venture makes great sense. The college said their preferred location for the new police station and call center would be just south of where the old barn is, which was a topic of debate last month about its proposed demolition. That demolition, proposed on June 14th, has been put on hold.
