CAROL STREAM – Fountain View Fitness recently received an electric vehicle charging station that is free to use for Carol Stream residents.

The installation was funded by government grants and a $2,500 donation from Joe Cotton Ford of Carol Stream.

During the next six months, the company hopes to aid in the installation of four separate charging stations within the community, at locations such as grocery stores and restaurants.
