State Grant Possible Funding Source For Peru Pool

Posted by wlpo on September 8, 2010

Grant money could be available for a new Peru swimming pool.  The Illinois Department of Natural Resources will be taking applications this fall for towns with parks and recreation projects.

That’s according to Roger Schamberger of Burbach Aquatics.  He believes Peru could have a good chance of receiving money.  He says the grant could be for 75%.

He thinks if the city could get the grant they could go out for bids in the spring of 2011 and have a pool ready for the summer of 2013.

Schamberger was speaking at Wednesday night’s city council meeting.  He says his company could perform a technical evaluation and marketing survey for about $9,000.

But the council only listened and asked questions.
