State grants old OSLAD request to Peru

Posted by wlpo on August 12, 2016

The news surrounding a future Peru splash pad keeps getting better and better.  State Senator Sue Rezin said Thursday that an OSLAD grant the city applied for several years ago has been freed up and is coming its way in hopefully, 60 days.

Rezin says the original application will have to be amended to reflect a change of location – likely now to be the old Peru Washington school site.  Toronto Blue Jays star pitcher J. A. Happ and his wife made news about 2 months ago when they promised $100,000 for a splash pad.

Rezin calls it a “win – win” for everyone including special needs children.
