Erie City Council is accepting applications to fill the seat left vacant following Liz Allen's resignation earlier this month.

The announcement comes after city council voted Wednesday night to accept Allen's resignation.

Applicants must be at least 18 years of age and residents of the City of Erie for at least one year to be eligible.

Anyone interested in the position is asked to submit a one-page resume along with a cover letter answering the following three questions:

  • What is the greatest skill you would bring to City Council?
  • Where do you see the most potential in our City?
  • What obstacle would you most like to address?

Answers should not exceed more than 125 words per question.

Applications must be delivered to Office of the City Clerk in Erie City Hall Room 104 or submitted by email to [email protected] by noon on Friday, Jan. 27.

The selected applicant will fill a one-year term.
