Perry City Council finalized plans April 2, 2015 for a new award program to recognize excellence of residents in maintaining
their home and yard,
thus generating “Perry Pride.”
The new award program, initiated by Mayor Pro-tem Tom Chaput, has been established as a 6-year program with award
plaques being presented
each year, May through October.
In recognition of the monthly winner, the selected “Perry Pride” resident will receive an engraved plaque, sponsored by
as well as having their name engraved upon a larger plaque to be permanently displayed at City Hall.
The winner will also be invited to attend
a council meeting to be thanked and recognized publicly.
To judge the subjective award, council members have designated and approved six different areas (neighborhoods)
within the city.
A different council member will be assigned each month to judge one of the neighborhoods (that he/she) does not live in.
If interested, residents may also provide input regarding who the next winner should be.
For the 2015 award season, the judging month and council member to judge, has been approved as follows:
May/Greg Wekwert; June/Tom Chaput; July/Jo Anne O’Berry; August/Terry Wood; September/Karen Davis;
and October/Chris Powell.
It should also be noted that the monthly “Put Your Best Face Forward” award presented to businesses
within the City of Perry will be selected by the same council member as the Perry Pride award recipient.
For additional information regarding either award, persons may call Perry City Hall,
8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, (517) 625-6155.
