Peru to appoint Director for Community Development

Posted by wlpo on March 25, 2010

What does it take to fill empty storefronts and help people sell their homes?  Peru Mayor Scott Harl thinks it takes jobs. 

          Citing high unemployment and a commitment to help the city’s economy, he’s asking the city council to allow Bob Vickrey to be the city’s Director for Community Development.  
          Harl says Vickrey has experience in sales, marketing and large scale economic projects. Vickrey will be retiring from sales at the Newstribune in May.  It’s a volunteer position with Vickrey being reimbursed for expenses.
          Aldermen seem happy with Harl’s choice.  A formal approval will come next Monday.
