From Your Town Administrator
On this Martin Luther King Jr. Day, 2019, I find inspiring Dr. King’s comments from his speech in London at City Temple on December 7th, 1964, three days before he received the Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo, Norway:
“Human progress never rolls in on the wheels of inevitability. It comes through the tireless efforts and the persistent work of dedicated individuals…And without this hard work, time itself becomes an ally of the primitive forces of social stagnation. And so we must help time, and we must realize that the time is always ripe to do right.”
I thank you for all the things—big and small—you are doing to actively foster human progress here in Erie and among those with whom you come into contact.
Lafayette/Erie 9-Mile Intergovernmental Agreement.
Tuesday night the Board of Trustees will consider an intergovernmental agreement with Lafayette that would resolve the ongoing litigation between Erie and Lafayette. The agreement would establish agreed on areas of influence for both municipalities, joint referrals of any applications for annexation into either municipality, refunding of Erie’s attorneys’ fees and settlement of litigation, a conservation easement over a defined area on the south 250’ of the property, sales tax revenue sharing, and agreements on Highway 287 and Highway 7/119th/Parkdale/County Line Road access. You can view the details in the proposed agreement at this link.
