I bet they have. It seems like every city that has ever faced extinction at one time or another has a monorail: Detroit, Miami, etc. I bet the monorail suggestion has been blurted out at closed-door meetings many a time in years gone by.

Think about it: a monorail circling the great city of Utica. It could travel through New Hartford and make stops at the mall, Consumer Square and even Hamilton College! Best of all - riding it would be FREE!

Great idea! Write it on a piece of paper, fold it up and send it to the mayor. Just make sure to label the return address "Up my A**" so they know where to send it back to.
