Home Rule Charter Commission

The Home Rule Charter Commission is tasked with drafting a governance Charter for the Town of Erie. The drafted Charter will be put to all Town residents for a vote in 2023. The Charter Commission has a responsibility by State statute to complete a draft of a Charter within 180 days from their election - this will be May 5, 2023. The draft was sent to the Board of Trustees on April 25, 2023 for that body to move the Charter forward as a ballot measure.
