Taking care of blight in Erie will continue with the help of some extra funding.
Erie County Council voted unanimously to give the Erie County Land Bank $250,000 in already available funds.
A demolition fee fund was started in 2018 for the recorder of deeds of a county to collect a fee of no more than $15 for each deed and mortgage reported.
The fees are then used for the demolition of blighted properties.
The money will help meet the land bank’s $400,000 budget for 2021.
