Operation Prom-ise back in city budget

Jeff Dankert
NewsTribune Reporter

On Monday, Peru City Council amended the city’s 2012-13 budget to remove a line for funding Operation Prom-ise, the program with a film to educate teenagers and the community about drinking and driving.
But on Tuesday, Treasurer Gary Hylla told the NewsTribune this line item, amounting to about $13,000, should remain in the budget because Operation Prom-ise is a bona fide project of the Peru Fire Department approved by the fire chief.
City Clerk Dave Bartley said the council will have to re-approve the budget with the Operation Prom-ise funding included.
Alderman Rodney Perez, a Peru firefighter closely involved with Operation Prom-ise, did not cast a vote Monday because of his involvement.
