The third annual Boo! on Briggs Street was a huge success on Saturday. Thank you to our sponsors and the businesses that participated in the store front decorating contest. There is still time to enjoy many other activities:
Snow Control Plan
- If you haven’t already done so, come down to the Erie Community Center by October 30 to vote on your favorite pumpkin by Town Staff! This year’s theme is 'Down on the Farm'.
- There are only a few days remaining on the 25% off annual memberships promotion for any new member of the Erie Community Center. Visit by October 31 for this frightening good deal!
- On Halloween be sure to stop by the Police Department's 'Halloween Safe Stop' from 4-6 p.m.
The Town of Erie Department of Public Works is ready with a snow control plan to keep streets accessible during periods of snow and ice. The goal is to provide snow and ice control services on primary and secondary routes. Residential streets are usually plowed or treated only after severe winter storms.
On Sunday, October 27, snow crews were dispatched at 5:00 a.m. The storm moved out early and streets were clearing by noon. We received 3” of snow for this round and crews are preparing for Tuesday and Wednesday. This next push of winter weather is expected to be a little stronger. Colder temperatures and a little more snow is expected before we clear up Wednesday night and Thursday.
By Town ordinance, property owners are responsible for clearing their sidewalks of snow. Consider moving snow to vegetation or trees. New trees and large shrubs especially need sufficient water for continued root growth in the winter.
