Attention Residents of Peru:

    The Town Of Peru’s wastewater collection project will be starting with light construction the week of April, 5th. 

Heavier construction starting with Sunrise Drive and North bend Street will begin April 12th. This project includes work on Elm Street, Maiden Lane, and Route 22 from the bridge to Maiden Lane, North Bend St. and Sunrise drive.  In conjunction to these streets two new pump stations will be constructed; one behind the Peru Community Church Center and one at the intersection of Maiden Lane and Button Brook Parkway.  Although our contractor, Rifenburg Contracting, intends to limit disruptions as much as possible and do their best to accommodate everyone, residents and businesses will be impacted with construction disruption and traffic delays at times.  Sections of roads will be reduced to one lane and completely closed to through traffic to help expedite work.  We will try our best to keep updated information posted on the following sites.  Residents are encouraged to monitor these sites for future updates.
Also, if you signed a temporary easement last year and have not signed a new one this year, please contact Pamela Barber at the Town Hall to complete this.

 Thank you all for your understanding during this construction period as the Town upgrades its sewer infrastructure!

The Little Ausable River Trail

The Town of Peru has built a chip seal paved trail to offer residents and visitors an opportunity to enjoy a variety of healthy outdoor activities within a beautiful and varied natural environment. The trail will also protect and interpret the important historic sites of Heyworth/Mason Park and a section of the D&H rail line, both instrumental to the Town’s development.

The trailhead is in Heyworth/Mason Park just off Mason Hill Rd in the hamlet of Peru.
With parking, benches, picnic tables, historic interpretive signage and a beautiful 1836 stone mill, it’s a great place to start your adventure.  The trail covers 1.25 miles, from Heyworth/Mason Park to the entrance to Sullivan Park on Route 22.  You can then use the sidewalk to connect back to the trailhead, for a 2.25 mile loop.
(see map)

It’s an interesting trip with massive cottonwoods, a planted pine forest, open fields
and the river. It seems to be an excellent birding site as well.  We now have several benches installed. Enjoy!
