Pickleball at the center of another argument in Peru

Posted by wlpo on June 3, 2014

A padlock on the gate of the pickleball court in Peru upset a couple of players and aldermen.  The city council Monday night debated the padlock.

The pickleball court at 28th Street Park has bothered the neighbors since it was put in several years ago.  The city council agreed during the off season to move the pickleball court to Washington Park and change 28th back to tennis courts.  The change is taking long as they wait on a contractor.

The public property committee, which is Alderman Rodney Perez and Alderwoman Becky Mueller, recently decided that the change would begin June 1 and ordered the pickleball court to be locked.

The council Monday night took an informal vote to remove the padlock until the contractor actually changes the courts.  Mueller and Perez voted opposed.
