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.

Precautionary Boil Order
Date: March 30, 2015 Effective immediately, a precautionary boil water notice (PBWN) is in effect for Perry Water Works customers residing in: The North Central portion of the City of Perry. The areas that were affected are: North Street between 4th and 8th Streets, 4th Street from North Street to the north end of the street and 5th Street between North Street and Park Street. Water service to your residence or business was interrupted or affected due to a water main break on North Street near 8th Street. Perry Water Works employees are making the water main repairs and will flush the lines in the area when the repairs are complete. Although precautions were taken during the repairs: Residents are advised that there is a possibility of discolored water, air, debris, and harmful microbes in the water. As a precaution, residents are advised to boil water for one minute at a rolling boil before using the water for drinking or cooking purposes. Bacteriological sampling will be conducted to ensure that the water is again safe to consume. This advisory will be lifted as soon as possible. If you experience discolored water, air or debris in the water you are advised to flush the home’s plumbing by running water from all the faucets for a few minutes until the water clears up. The water should still be boiled before being used for drinking or cooking even after it has been flushed. If you experience low water pressure please notify the Water Works at 515-465-2562. Thank You for your cooperation, Hank Schmidt Water Works Superintendent.
