Null and void all union contracts to stablize Uticas finances and stop the bleeding. We are being continuallly raped and nobodies doing a thing about it.

Utica Politicians always do the right thing, once they have expired all other options!
That's right! The common council voted to recommend the mayor ask for a review by Gov. Cuomo's Financial Review Board.
Taxpayers , the OD editorial Board, people on Topix, and anyone with a financial background recommended YEARS ago for this. Look at the date on this original post. Look up the article in the OD about this Financial Review Board when it was created by Cuomo.
There is only so much room for eligible cities to be on the list. Utica IS eligible. Is it too late?
Thank the mayor. Better yet, call him and tell him to do what he said in his inaugural speech and implement transparency and open the books to the state. And perform Internal audits? How bout it Marino? Are there any adults in charge?

Oops, wait a minute, the controller has never supervised an audit. The city has no one there who has ever done an audit.
Ever done one Joe? Why can't you put one together. At least give them an audit plan. Everyone knows how to reconcile, but they don't to hide malfeasance.

Is moorehouse out of touch with reality or is that the norm for the city of utica that public funds should have items unaccounted for? There is $30,000 unaccounted for and he shrugs it off as ok. There shouldnt be anything unaccounted for and if there is then someone took it.

If finances and management of those finances are on such an upswing as it says then why the need for a control board? Something smells

Exactly. If it's your job to account for the finances how can discrepancies be shrugged off?

No doubt. I couldn't imagine walking into my general managers office and just shrugging my shoulders that there's 30k missing from my department and I don't know where it went. Lol!

Now that is the best thing that could ever happen to Utica. The city is passed saving and needs a control board to fix and rebuild with no corupt local politians screwing it up.
Y wait for this to get worse and the state comes in, do it now
