Peru mayor cleared after FBI investigation

Posted by wlpo on September 9, 2014

Remember when Peru officials hired a retired judge to investigate questionable overtime pay?  Retired Judge William Balestri and La Salle County States Attorney Brian Towne concluded earlier this year that Mayor Scott Harl wasn’t acting criminally when he told the former public works superintendent to sign off on overtime hours that weren’t worked. 

Displeased with the investigation,  Alderman Rodney Perez took it to the FBI in February.   The FBI announced Friday that they also believe Harl didn’t commit a crime. 

Harl brought up the case during Monday night’s council meeting.  He says he and his attorney are considering taking action because of the “defamatory and slanderous” accusations.
