Fire and Emergency Services
The newest addition to the fleet, “Rescue 1”, is a 2017 Ford F-350, 4 door cab with a 9 foot rescue box on the back. Staffed with 2 personnel, it will mainly handle medical calls, relieving the stress off of the bigger more costly apparatus, but will also respond along with other apparatus to structure fires and various incidents as needed. “Rescue 1” has the on-board capability to refill air cylinders on fire scenes and equipment to handle vehicle accidents.
Community Development
Energy Efficient Loan Program
In August 2010 the City of Perry was awarded a revolving loan grant funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 to assist Perry property owners with energy efficiency improvements.  To date the loan program has been a success with providing a low interest loan for residential and commercial properties. For more information click below.

Be the solution to stormwater pollution
Did you know that when it rains it pollutes? It starts throughout the the City of Perry. Every time it rains water runs off the land as stormwater. As it flows over rooftops, lawns, driveways and streets, stormwater picks up pollutants and debris such as dirt, motor oil, fertilizer, litter and pet waste. All of these pollutants are carried by stormwater into storm drains and drainage ditches, which flow untreated into our rivers, lakes and streams.
Stormwater pollution is the biggest threat to our waterways. It harms our ability to use our rivers and lakes for swimming and fishing, makes treating our drinking water more difficult and negatively impacts the environment.
Let’s be the solution to stormwater pollution.
The City strives to provide the most up-to-date and accurate news, announcements and events happening in Perry. Thank you for subscribing to FYI Perry.
