OFFICE HIGHLIGHTS

Erie County’s elected officials will not receive pay increase

Weights and Measures Director served with subpoena

Erie County’s Director of Weights and Measures, Edwin Gonsiorek, has been served with a subpoena by Chairman John Mills, making him legally obligated to testify before the Erie County Legislature’s Finance and Management Committee. Failure to appear would result in further legal action to compel his appearance.

Residents asked to weigh-in on proposed salary increases for County elected officials
