Summary from the Charter Commission Chair:
- Erie will have 3 districts with 2 Councillors each, serving staggered terms. The Mayor will be elected at large.
- We will hold elections in November of even years.
- Current sitting Trustees whose terms will expire in April 2024 will have their terms extended until the new Council is elected in November 2024, at which point the entire Board of Trustees will be dissolved, to be replaced by the Town Council.
There was a lot of discussion and reasoning that went into these decisions. If you'd like to see the discussion that went into it, please consider watching the full meeting.
Please remember that decisions are not yet final and will be up for discussion again until the final Draft is submitted in May. Questions or comments can be submitted to the Charter Commission through an online form. Members of the public can also plan to attend in-person engagement meetings the third Thursday of the month.
