New Jake Brake Ordinance
On Tuesday, March 23, the Board of Trustees passed ordinance 07-2021 that prohibits the use of engine compression or dynamic braking devices, also known commonly as 'Jake Brakes' within the Town of Erie. Town staff is replacing signs and educating construction sites, Waste Connections, and well sites that the ordinance is in effect. The maximum penalty is $2,650 for using these brake devices at any hour of the day, any day of the week. Enforcement will begin after a two-week education effort.
