Committee suggests Peru put old electric building up for sale

Posted by wlpo on September 29, 2009

A piece of Peru’s history could be going up for sale. The old electric plant on Water Street isn’t used for generating power or much of anything and that has the electric committee thinking it should be sold.
Electric Committee Chairman Ron Wren told the council Monday night they could maybe sell the pieces of what’s left inside. The over century old building is of no use to the city.
The committee also thinks they should have five old generators tested to see if they’re still any good. The generators were considered ruined after a fire at generator building a few years ago. Wren suggested they be sold but no one else on the council agreed. He’s not saying yet how much it will cost to have them tested. It’s expected to take a few months.
