Erie/Lafayette/TOEURA IGA

On Tuesday the Board of Trustees entered into executive session with the Town's Attorney to receive legal advice on the Nine Mile litigation following the Supreme Court's decision to deny Lafayette's Writ of Certiorari. The Town of Erie Urban Renewal Authority (TOEURA) is expected to discuss options in the near future.

Organizational Chart

Organizational Chart

On Tuesday, the Board of Trustees confirmed their support of the Town Administrator's proposed organizational structure.

The new structure optimizes the spans of control for the Town Administrator and a Deputy Town Administrator; provides clear succession planning; clarifies the chain of command and accountability; and resolves mismatch between several position responsibilities and their relative titles. The major changes include:

  • Eliminate the previous multiple “Assistant to Town Administrator” positions and create one Deputy Town Administrator position. Town Administrator Fleming selected Farrell Buller to serve as Deputy Town Administrator. 
  • Recruit and hire a new Parks and Recreation Director to fill the position vacated by Ms. Buller’s promotion to Deputy Town Administrator.
  • Increase the Economic Development Manager and Information Technology Manager Director level positions to better reflect the responsibilities associated with each position.
  • Increase the Police Department authorized sworn staff by two positions for a total of 36 Police Officers.
  • Create an Economic Development specialist position to assist with the Town’s numerous Economic Development.
  • In a related action, Fleming also promoted Acting Human Resources Director Alicia Melendez to regular status as the Town’s Human Resources Director.
The Board included evaluating the Town's organizational structure as a priority in the 2019 Work Plan. The Town Administrator addressed the needs based on his experience with comparable municipalities and discussions with the Board and Senior Staff.
