They are the following: Youth Baseball, Basketball, Cheerleading, Football, Soccer, Adult Softball, Basketball Camp, Football Camp, Soccer Camp, Summer Camp, Community Water Battle, Disc Golf Tournament, Fishing Rodeo, and Movie in the Park.

Through our programs we provide a safe environment, create lasting memories, and install a sense of belonging to the community. 

Perry Animal Control would like to remind everyone that with the temperatures rising please do not leave your pets in your car unattended and make sure they have plenty of fresh water at all times. Walk your dog early in the morning or later in the afternoon.  Also make sure your pet has some sort of shelter to get under for shade if it is outside.  Symptoms of heatstroke in dogs include panting, lethargy, drooling, fever, vomiting and collapse.  If you think your dog may have heatstroke, get them to a Vet ASAP, as this condition can cause permanent organ damage and even death.  

Please note our Animal Control Facility’s new hours are Monday – Sunday
8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

  Tips For A Safe Ride   
School buses are the safest way for students to travel, but children also need to do their part to stay alert and aware of their surroundings to prevent injury. NSC urges parents to teach their children the following safety rules for getting on and off the bus, and for exercising good behavior while riding.

Illicit Discharge Detection & Elimination In Our Community
What is an illicit discharge?
An illicit discharge is defined by the State of Georgia General NPDES Stormwater permit as “any discharge to an MS4 that is not composed entirely of stormwater.”   Because there is little or no treatment, it is vital that only stormwater be discharged from these MS4s. The general permit received by Phase II regulates communities to require that those communities develop an IDDE program. Please review the IDDE Program for the City of Perry.  This program will assist our communities in meeting their requirement set forth in their General NPDES Stormwater permit.
