The Northeast Nemaha County Long-Term Recovery Group is committed to sharing information with the community through this town hall and other communication.

Peru, Neb. – The Peru community and surrounding areas are invited to a Town Hall on December 16 at 6 p.m. in the Peru State College Performing Arts Center or by Zoom video conference. The event will feature the following topics: the new grocery store coming to Peru, green space recommendations from the Nebraska Forest Service, an update on the Steamboat Trace Trail recovery, opportunities for community involvement and flood recovering topics including lagoons, streets, purchasing homes in the flood plain and the connection to Auburn for water.

The City of Peru and the Northeast Nemaha County Long Term Recovery Group (LTRG) are coordinating with federal and state agencies, as well as private organizations and foundations, to move priority projects forward and emerge from the 2019 flood stronger than ever.

“Progress continues on all infrastructure projects for the City of Peru,” said Deborah Solie, Disaster Recovery Coordinator. “The Northeast Nemaha County LTRG is committed to communicating with the public through town halls, social media, letters and all other forms of media.  We are excited to welcome Lindy and DJ Schmidt to this Town Hall, the new owners of the grocery store in Peru. They will share their vision for the store and their excitement about joining the community.”

The in-person town hall will be socially distanced in the Performing Arts Center and attendees are required to wear masks. A zoom option will be available for those unable to attend in person, and a recording of the town hall will be made available to the public.

For those interested in attending, golf carts will be available to assist with transportation to the PAC.  Contact or call the City of Peru at (402) 825-6685 for details.
