Sales Tax Going Up In Peru?

Posted by wlpo on September 13, 2010

The state of Illinois isn’t the only government talking about raising taxes.  The Peru City Council is throwing around the idea as well.

When the council meets tonight, one of the things they plan on talking about is raising the city’s sales tax rate by a half-percent.  The council brought up the idea last Wednesday as way to possibly pay for road and sewer improvements.  It could also go towards funding a new swimming pool.

The council has talked about having the tax increase take effect January 1st.  Tonight’s meeting starts at 7:30.
