The Town of Erie Facebook site is the most recent initiative the Town has undertaken to enhance communication features and services that allow residents to receive the information they want in a variety of ways, without necessarily having to visit the Town’s website. All News & Announcements and Calendar events posted on the Town’s website will now automatically be posted on the Town’s Facebook site.
