November 15, 2017 – The Peru Town Board unanimously approved the town’s 2018 budget at tonight’s Special meeting. The budget did not include the resolution proposed by Supervisor-elect Brandy McDonald at the board’s November 13th meeting. That resolution would have lowered the supervisor’s salary by $3,690 and raised the deputy supervisor’s salary by an equal amount. McDonald stated that office coverage would be provided by Deputy Supervisor Jim Douglass while he was working at his full-time job and that he would be in the town hall as soon as possible at the end of his workday. He works until 3:30 p.m. He also said he would be available as needed at night and on weekends.

Questioned after tonight’s brief meeting as to why he withdrew his resolution McDonald responded, “I don’t need the controversy. When asked what what his office hours would be, he responded, “I’ve already answered that question. I’ll be available on my cell phone.”
