Erie County Council discussed ways to increase accountability in the county’s grant application process.
The council proposed establishing a committee of five individuals to assist in the collection of applications. Erie County Councilwoman Kathy Fatica said forming a committee and creating a uniform application procedure would strengthen the process for awarding grants.
“We just want to make sure that we look at the process for reviewing the grant applications, that all the applications, answer the basic questions,” said the Fatica, chair of the Finance Committee.
The council will take up the issue at its meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 20.
