Peru Pool Talk Not Going Away

Posted by wlpo on November 8, 2010

What do you think of pitching in to help pay for a new outdoor pool for Peru?

After a heated talk last week about the pool, the Peru City Council will talk about it again tonight.  More specifically, they’ll discuss the idea of implementing a temporary five dollar municipal pool fee on all utility bills.  This fee only take effect if the city receives a federal grant to help pay for a new pool.

The chances of getting the grant though are limited with Mayor Scott Harl refusing to sign the grant until the council comes up with a financial plan to pay for the pool.

The Peru swimming pool was closed this past summer due to safety concerns.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
