When the new Peru police station opens, the current one won’t be left completely empty.
The Peru City Council meets Monday night and is expected to approve a lease agreement between itself and the Illinois Valley Regional Dispatch Center. IVRD would continue to dispatch emergency calls out of the current Peru police station for at least five years. Peru will be paid $10 a year.
Locations in Mendota and Oglesby were also looked at as possible homes to the dispatch center.
