Excellence is more readily attained by being.

Being available.
Being kind.
Being compassionate.
Being transparent.
Being real.
Being thoughtful.
Being ourselves.

It's cold out there! Garbage pick up in the City of Erie is on the normal schedule. No delays in service.

The violence last night was tragic and unnecessary. The "street" mentality can not be stopped only by police. It takes parenting, mentoring, and teaching our young people that violence is not the answer.

After 4 months of discussion I am putting a resolution forward requesting the City Solicitor to draft an ordinance combining garbage with sewer and/or water bills so that the City of Erie can shut off the water on delinquent garbage accounts.

Erie City Council will take steps at its next meeting that could combine water, sewer and refuse bills

  If people were as concerned with the betterment of their communities as they are with Duck Dynasty, what a wonderful world it would be.
