Frustrated with city leaders, co-presidents of swimming pool group in Peru resign

Posted by wlpo on May 16, 2016

Do you still hold out hope for a city pool in Peru or is it time to move on? Two women leading the charge for a new pool are moving on.

Debbie Noonan and Anita Kapinski turned in their resignations Monday night to the Peru City Council as co-presidents of the Friends for Peru Pool Committee. Noonan and Kapinski say “Mayor Harl and council members have stated a swimming pool is a luxury that they can’t afford, we felt it was a necessity”. The city council plans to send Noonan and Kapinski a thank you letter.

Friends for Peru Pool Committee member Claudia Mikyska says the committee will continue raising money despite losing their co-presidents. She says they have raised over $100,000.

The city pool at Washington Park was closed after the 2009 summer.
