City Council puts resolution on agenda to end EMTA stalemate

Local News

Some members of Erie City Council are looking to put an end to the drawn-out stalemate over control of the Erie Metropolitan Transit Authority.

A resolution is on the agenda for Wednesday’s City Council meeting. 

The resolution asks for the city solicitor to join with EMTA members to use whatever legal means are necessary to force the county out of the EMTA charter.

The county withdrew its charter and funding of $360,000 after wanting more control and to regionalize the authority in June. 

Wednesday’s meeting is scheduled for 9 a.m. at City Hall.
