OFFICES at the Perry City Hall have recently been completed and staff has moved into their new offices as of Tuesday, Feb 21. It had been over 18 years since the last update had been made to the offices. According to staff, “it smells new and fresh” and they are still doing their best to make good use of their new space.

Customized cupboards, new carpeting and paint, decorative partitions, are just a part of the first floor remodels finished at Perry City Hall. Perry City staff, the city clerk, police, and treasurer offices have all been spruced up to gain more usable space and also to update electrical service for computers and printers. “It’s been a true team effort,” commented Perry City Clerk Devin Miller.
The remodel began on Jan. 16 and finished up on Feb. 21. The staff are excited for expanded countertops and desks, but especially the extra storage space brought about by the newly customized cupboards. Budget for the project was $33,000 and all the updates came about just under budget to complete the work.
“Residents seem to be open and excited about the new office look as well,” added Miller. Contractors for the project were Ritts Done Right Construction, Cabinet Fitters LCC, Bigger Carpet and Morgan Electric.
