PERU — A north central Indiana mayor is back on the job after a heart attack sidelined him in April.

A Miami County judge ruled this week that Peru Mayor Miles Hewitt is able to perform all of his required job duties.

The judge heard testimony from the mayor and consulted a letter from his cardiologist.

Peru city council president Patricia Russell was appointed acting mayor back in May.

Hewitt's term runs through 2023.
