Peru Electric Department was pressed into service Sunday when power went out. Public Service Manager Jeff King said homes and some businesses lost service around 12:10pm. The problem, said King, was underground at the Plank Road
sub-station. Workers re-routed power and restored service about 1:40pm. The area affected was roughly from Dunham Sports south to St. John's Church. King said repairs will be done Monday that the maintenance budget should handle.
