Peru to apply for splash pad grant

Posted by wlpo on May 19, 2014

The saying goes that if you don’t ask you won’t receive. Peru will be asking for an OSLAD grant to pay for half the cost of a splash pad, parking lot and other features at Washington Park.  The grant is offered through the Illinois Department of Natural Resources.

The city council agreed Monday night to apply for it.

Friends for Peru Pool worked with Nora Fesco of North Central Illinois Council of Governments and Mike Perry of Chamlin and Associates to come up with a grant proposal.  Fesco thinks they will know around November if they are in the running for the money.
