  1. Thanks for providing the addresses of those arrested or those involved in accidents. The new editor of the Perry Chief says he chooses not to give them. People have a right to know and it’s a matter of public record, so please continue to provide Perry residents that information. Job well done.

  2. People need to call City Hall instead of the Police for things like grass clippings. Maybe if City Hall would have a tip hotline phone number for things that the compliance officer should cover, it would help free up the PD for things that are more important.
