UPDATE: Historic home in Perry remains in trouble

By  | 

PERRY, MI (WILX) -- A piece of history on the city of Perry's budgetary chopping block -- remains in trouble Thursday night.

In July, the city council approved $15,500 worth of repairs for the Calkins-Macqueen house.

The mayor vetoed it for financial reasons. On Thursday night during a packed city council meeting members could not override the mayor's veto.

They talked about transferring the house to the city's historical society.

No decision was made at the meeting.
