Council votes in new leaders

COUNCIL: Members of the Peru City Council meet Monday night for their first meeting together since being elected in November. 

Newly elected members of the Peru City Council gathered Monday night for their first meeting since taking their oaths of office.

The seven-member board saw five seats turnover in the most recent city elections, with a sixth member – District 5 representative Mark Ramsey – also winning re-election just months after being appointed to replace a member who stepped down for health reasons.
