Posted by wlpo on December 15, 2014

A pickup truck capable of plowing snow, commercial lawn mowers and a big, old van are a few of the things up for auction in Peru. The city is using a sealed bid auction to clean house.

You can get a look at the trucks and mowers Tuesday when they’re available for inspection outside of the parks and rec garage on the south side of Washington Park.

Bids must be turned into the City Clerk’s office by nine next Monday morning.
