Code enforcement officer coming to Peru

Posted by wlpo on August 10, 2011

The house with the knee-high weeds and the list of building code violations just might have to be fixed up if the code enforcement officer comes knocking.

Soon a code enforcement officer will be tackling trouble properties in Peru.  The city council approved the new position Wednesday night.  The person will work be part-time from April to the end of September writing tickets.

City officials have started taking a tougher stance on abandoned and nuisance properties, including a new set of rules which was passed in July.
