County Council Approves Resolution for RELCO Upgrade

Posted: Updated:

After years of debate, Erie County Council has approved plans to upgrade emergency services in the county. 

Tonight, in a unanimous decision, council members approved a resolution in support of updating the RELCO system, which includes the emergency lights that are placed at many of the intersections throughout the county.

Five municipalities have teamed up with Erie County Council to help pay for the updates.  So far, they have more than $200,000.  But, that's not expected to cover the overall cost of the project.

So the municipalities involved will now try to secure additional private funds.

"We firmly believe that this is the step in the right direction and for police, getting out and getting back safely," said Erie County Councilman Phil Fatica.  "If government has a core function, it's public safety."

Right now there's no set date for the improvement project to begin.
