Peru to oversee parking for summer concerts

When Tim McGraw and Brantley Gilbert perform at the Illinois Valley Regional Airport in Peru this summer the city will be cashing in.  An agreement between Merry Noonan, the woman behind Lou’s La Grotto’s Concerts for a Cause and the city was approved Moday night.

The city will make one dollar from every ticket sold and unlike last summer’s Kid Rock concert, the city will be in charge of parking and security outside of the venue.  With this will come a $5 charge for parking.
