EMTA Tug-of-war to be Decided by Actual Tug-of-war


The fight over EMTA between Erie City Council and Erie County Council, which has been described as a “Tug-of-war” will be decided by an actual tug-of-war between the two governing bodies.

The two seven member councils have decided to resolve the impasse by having a tug-of-war on Beach 10 on Memorial Day.  However, there are still a few details to work out. County Council is resisting City Council’s idea of having the city and county government heads (Mayor Joe Sinnott and County Executive Kathy Dahlkemper, respectively) act as the anchors for the tug-of-war teams. The county says this will give the city an unfair weight advantage, but they will consider the proposal providing Mayor Sinnott refrains from singing karaoke.

The winning team will take the lead on the new charter, while the losing team will actually have to ride an EMTA bus.
