As Mayor of the City of Perry, I would like to welcome you to our website. Perry has been designated one of Iowa's "Great Places" and I invite you to learn more about our progressive community. From the "Bike Ride to Rippey" otherwise known as BRR ( or the Winter RAGBRAI Reunion) in February, the Friday Fests with live music and a mouth-watering variety of foods, our old fashioned 4th of July Celebration to our Latino Festival and the annual Lighted Christmas Parade in November, we have a rich tradition of events for our residents and visitors to enjoy.

Smoke Test- Sanitary Sewer 9-29-2015
The City of Perry will be conducting a smoke test of the sanitary sewer system in the area of Willis Avenue to Pattee Street from 7th Street to 11th Street on Tuesday, September 29th, weather permitting. Please note that the rain date will be Wednesday, September 30th. A “SMOKE TEST” survey will assist the inspection crews in locating breaks and defects in the sewer system. The smoke you see coming from the vent stacks on houses or holes in the ground is NON-TOXIC, NON-STAINING, HAS NO ODOR, WHITE TO GRAY IN COLOR AND CREATES NO FIRE HAZARD. The smoke should not enter your home unless you have defective plumbing or dried up drain traps. It is advisable for the home owner to pour a gallon of water into each floor drain prior to the testing. If smoke enters your home there is good reason to assume that dangerous sewer gases may also be entering your home or business. You should evacuate immediately and notify the work crews. If you are not home and discover smoke when you return, please call the City of Perry at 515-465-2481. IMPORTANT! If there is any individual in your home or business who has respiratory problems and is immobile, please notify us at 515-465-2481 prior to testing.
