Email News Alerts

To keep up with residential and industrial growth in the city and to keep gas going to everyone on the system, Perham Public Works is planning on making improvements to some natural gas mains.


 The distribution system is currently experiencing growing pains, particularly on the north side of town, following industry expansions in recent years, according to Public Works Director Merle Meece. Upgrades will need to be started this fall, in order to prevent problems this winter.
