Responsibilities

The Town of Erie became a Home Rule municipality by a vote of the people in November 2023. After adopting the Town Charter, Erie will now be governed under the Town Council / Town Manager form of government. Under this form of government, the Town Council (one Mayor, one Mayor Pro-Tem, five Councilors) serves as the legislative and governing body of the Town, while the Town Manager administers the day-to-day operations of the Town. The Council is responsible for establishing Town policies and goals and has the authority to adopt codes, ordinances and resolutions as needed to conduct the business of the Town. Each Councilor is also responsible for acting as a liaison to regional boards and commissions on behalf of the Town of Erie.

Note: As part of the transition plan to adopt the new Town Charter, all current members of the Council will need to run for re-election in November 2024 to begin new terms on the Town Council. After November 2024, the Mayor will now have four-year terms (maximum two terms) as will all other Councilors. The three lowest vote-getters after the November 2023 election will only serve for two years to ensure staggering the turnover on the Council.
