TO:        Affected Town of Peru Sewer Users
RE:        Sewer Line Installation
DATE:        January 2, 2019

Dear Property Owner:

As you may be aware, the Town of Peru will be proceeding with sewer line project in 2020 on sections of Elm Street, Main, Street, North Bend Street, and Maiden Lane.  As part of those improvements, new sewer lines, manholes, service laterals, etc., will be installed.

A new sewer main and/or sewer service lateral may be installed on, along, or near your property. 

To allow the Town and/or its contractors to install and maintain the sewer main, you may be asked to sign a permanent easement that will grant the Town the permanent access it will need over your property for installation and maintenance purposes.

The Town may also be reconnecting your existing sewer service lateral to the sewer main.  In that case, you may be asked to sign a temporary access easement to allow the Town and/or its contractors to gain access to your property only to make the necessary connections during construction.

The Town will hold a public meeting on January 13th at 5:30 pm at Town Hall to answer any questions you may have regarding this matter.  We hope to also have our town attorney present at this meeting

We appreciate and thank you for your cooperation and assistance.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call the Town’s Water & Sewer Department at 518-643-8125, or you can also email the Town Water & Sewer Department at .

Thank you for your time and consideration of the above.

Brandy McDonald, Town Supervisor

The Little Ausable River Trail

The Town of Peru has built a chip seal paved trail to offer residents and visitors an opportunity to enjoy a variety of healthy outdoor activities within a beautiful and varied natural environment. The trail will also protect and interpret the important historic sites of Heyworth/Mason Park and a section of the D&H rail line, both instrumental to the Town’s development.

The trailhead is in Heyworth/Mason Park just off Mason Hill Rd in the hamlet of Peru.
With parking, benches, picnic tables, historic interpretive signage and a beautiful 1836 stone mill, it’s a great place to start your adventure.  The trail covers 1.25 miles, from Heyworth/Mason Park to the entrance to Sullivan Park on Route 22.  You can then use the sidewalk to connect back to the trailhead, for a 2.25 mile loop.
(see map)

It’s an interesting trip with massive cottonwoods, a planted pine forest, open fields
and the river. It seems to be an excellent birding site as well.  We now have several benches installed. Enjoy!
