City officials working on new ticketing program to help fight blight

Local News

The city of Erie is moving forward with its fight against blight.

City officials are ironing out the details of its proposed ‘Quality of Life’ ticketing program.  They say many of the complaints from residents involve blight, such as overgrown grass and litter.  If approved, the ordinance could quicken the process of citing homeowners and make it as simple as issuing a parking ticket. 

The city will hold a study session on August 9th.  After that, it would make its way to City Council for a vote.
