Your public safety budgets are out of control. Someone at least has the sense to say NO MORE.

Utica's population in 1960 was 100,410. In 2000 our population was 60,651. Does any have the numbers for the Utica Fire Department and Utica Police Department?

So you wanna see the numbers? Just drive around that place.

Count the potholes.

Count the city employees.

Count the fir houses.

Count the city cars.

Count the people lousing about on pensions.

Count the crackheads.

Count the prison jobs.

Count the people leaving.

Count the racists.

Count the Makers vs. the Takers.

Count the only states that pay more for less than New York.

Lol, that's a good one. He has single handedly ruined the department. No one wants to work for him, people are leaving and retiring in droves.
That's not true, he has improved the morale in the department 100%. The guys love working for him and the Mayor because they are fair to EVERYBODY !

tHe commom council did support public safety. Public safety should be CUT in half. They make too much and they are over staffed.

Watch when you need a police car to come and help you and there is no one to send, they didn't support our police department and cut in half. What a joke

About time. Why should us property owners keep getting the shaft. UPD and UFD are overpaid.

What the common council did was admirable. The public safety parts of Utica are killing it while they fill their pockets. I think the best thing the council could do next is force Big Chief Brooks to retire and take his huge retirement with him. This man has done very serious damage to the taxpayers of Utica and wants to do more. He is out of touch and out of his mind. He HAS to go. He is the leader of the pillaging group know as "Public Safety". By the way, if the state sends in a control board to take over the city, the police/fire contracts will be voided!
