Peru goes with youth movement in picking new treasurer

Posted by wlpo on July 11, 2016

The average age of elected officials in Peru just went down a lot.

Twenty-eight-year-old Jackson Powell has been appointed city treasurer. The L-P grad replaces Gary Hylla who retired with under a year left in his term.

Powell was picked out of two finalists and will make nearly $6,000 a year as treasurer. He’s also the controller at First Federal Savings Bank.

The treasurer’s position will be up for election in April.
