Demolition begins at former Peru hotel

Posted by wlpo on April 21, 2014

Demolition started Monday at the old Holiday Inn and King’s Inn in Peru. The city bought the old hotel in late 2012 for $26,000 from a tax scavenger. Asbestos abatement, demolition and site restoration is estimated to cost $448,000.

Crews began removing asbestos from it last month. Fire Chief and Building Inspector Jeff King says demolition will take several weeks.
