In an effort to address widespread rumors, the Town of Erie announced it has established a “Rumor Mill” on its new website (www.erieco.gov). The first topic addressed, not surprisingly, was oil & gas activity.
To view the Rumor Mill go to the Transparency tab at www.erieco.gov and click on Rumor Mill. Rumors can be reported by email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Town officials’ frustration with rumors is understandable, but does anyone think the rumor mill will succeed? Those who perpetuate gossip are rarely interested in the facts.
