April 26, 2014 - Erie County gave the community a chance to learn more about what the county does, and an opportunity to tour the prison as part of Erie's celebration of National County Government Month.

People got the chance to learn about the day-to-day operations of the prison, and got to see their tax dollars in action.

Officials from many county agencies set up tables in the lobby of the prison to explain more about their jobs and where tax payer money is really going.

County Executive, Kathy Dahlkemper, said she is hoping to make this an annual event.
