Representatives from the US Conference of Mayors meeting in Erie today, discussing how they can help bring ideas to Erie.
Erie Mayor Joe Schember sitting down with Jeff Bean, the Managing Director of the US Conference of Mayors, to build a relationship with the organization. Bean says they make routine visits in an effort to get acquainted with newly elected mayors and discuss the programs available to cities like Erie.
Bean says, “one good thing is that mayors get to share ideas… They don’t mind stealing them or taking them back, just about every problem out there has a solution and that is part of what we try to do, share those solutions”.
Another topic discussed at today’s meeting was smart metered parking and how Erie can learn from other cities’ trial and errors.
