Perry Municipal Authority
The City's utility services are operated by the Perry Municipal Authority, a public trust with the
City as sole beneficiary. These utilities include its water and electric services. The City's main source of revenue is
generated by the distribution of municipal power.
Our water plant is capable of producing and
distributing enough water for a community twice our size. This fact
should be used to promote economic development and/or sales of
excess water to other communities and water systems. Maximizing this
opportunity could also enhance the revenue stream.
The City of Perry also has four exploitable
revenue sources that could be streamlined to increase revenue and/or
provide additional services:
City Parks and Recreation facilities: The
City of Perry is home to two large parks, CCC Lake and Perry Lake.
These parks have multiple revenue stream possibilities, including
recreational vehicle facilities.
Perry Municipal Airport: The Airport
has hundreds of acres of prime commercial development property.
The Industrial Park is ideally set with frontage road access to
Interstate 35. The City owns additional acreage that could be used.
Grace Hill Cemetery has been expanded and
computerized to improve services and attract new business.
