Yes, but we opened it up a little more in the last contract. It's five miles driving distance from the downtown firehouse. It got us to where we can live in Maryville, Caseyville, the north edge of O'Fallon & Fairview, and into the O'Fallon, Triad, Grant, and Belleville school districts.
Five miles doesn't sound like much, but it allowed more flexibilty and options.
