The first thing the Control Board does is remove city government, namely the mayor and common council. Voiding contracts is not automatic. Before they start making any cuts to employment, etc. they have to actually review if or where cuts can be made. Again, these cuts are not automatic as you imply them to be.<quoted text>I'll match my IQ with you any day and I'll win!!!!!!
I am VERY aware of what the Control Board will do - the only ones that are afraid of it coming into Utica and taking over are the politicians and all their "friends" that have been using the City's finances as their own personal "cash cow".
You would also be surprsed how many Utica taxpapers DO and WANT the Control Board to come here - and they also are well informed!
One of the first things a Control Board will do is void out ALL previous contracts made with the Unions for the majority of the City's employees.
Then, they will start making cuts in the employment - something they should have done years ago.
Then, they will start taking a look at all the "perks" our politicians are getting - paid by the City.
Just these 3 things would lowed the current Budget to at least a ZERO increase in taxes- if not a big negative!
Your IQ is slowly diminishing.
