There is a shakeup of leadership at Destination Erie, now that Erie County executive Kathy Dahlkemper is heading the steering committee.
Dahlkemper confirms that the vote was 4 to 1 to not renew the contract of project manager Michael Fuhrman.
Dahlkemper says she wants to hire a project manager with a stronger planning background.
Destination Erie is administering a 1.8 million dollar federal grant aimed at economic development and job creation for the entire Erie County region.
Earlier in the week, the steering committee replaced member Michele Zieziula with GE Transportation executive Joel Berdine.
