1830 Fourth

Peru City Council unanimously approved the sale of the building at 1830 Fourth St., which the city bought when it was in foreclosure and after years of city officials and police watching and being called to the building. Attorney Doug Schweickert said the sale was done in accordance with the city’s home rule powers. He likened the sale of the building to Gary Hammers for redevelopment to when the city approved a downtown redevelopment plan in the early 1990s, which resulted in the construction of the Mirror Building, new office buildings west of Fulton Street and west of Grant Street and the building that housed a Sears appliance store and today houses two businesses east of Maud Powell Plaza
