PERU – Peru Mayor Scott Harl told residents in Monday’s town hall meeting that a pool is not in the budget in the near future. Harl explained that the project would take around $5 million and that there is not a revenue source for this project at this time. Harl also mentioned a 2014 referendum that asked residents if they were willing to pay increased property taxes to fund a pool, however the referendum failed and has left the city without a way to fund a potential pool.
