This City is a toilet. Gaetano has a building that is falling down. He cant afford to fix it or tear it down.(Sure, he cant.) He just doesn't want to. So, he says to the City, Ill 'Sell' you the building at Post and Charlotte for a cool quarter million. But, you have to buy my crap building for a buck....annnnnddddd.....when I bid on the job...I'll have the lowest bid...wink,wink...;)

ARE YOU KIDDING ME ?? Doesn't this stink to high hell ? Citizens in "Sin City," should be appalled. This seems to reek of some type of illegal activity. I think SOMEONE should look into this....

The people of Utica must be the biggest suckers in the country. It seems as though they will tolerate everything and anything. They elect the very people who pick their pockets.

I believe Randy Soggs called it a "sweetheart deal". Was it made in bed I wonder. Face it Uticans, Utica is a drug and corruption infested city.

Another Roefaro corruption crime of the century. This one he can't remember why he would buy a building for $1 while costing taxpayers $300,000. When is Roefaro going to jail for all the crimes against taxpayers and quiting after the money ran out. Also, the masterplan like this one to swindle more money well into the future to fund the family and friends plan that never seems to stop coming forward.

Where the hell is the attorney general of New YOrk, he should get wind of these corrupt deals and start prosecuting. We need to put these pigs in jail and teach them and all other administrations that they will go to jail for corruption.

Chucky says he didn't want to sell the other buildings but rofero begged him. Lol. Those building were garbage vacant buildings. Why would u ever want to keep them. Also chucky u have a lot of garbage properties in Utica. Start cleaning them up. I think we need to get the state to look into this con.

Please, someone get the state to take over Utica. The taxpayers have gotten it stuck in their butts once more.

Quite the different story in the OD. No flags raised, no questions asked. Just the normal Donna Donovan dummed down reporting so not to piss any of her rich friends off.

Gotta love Utica. The laughing stock of the state because nobody will ever change any of this crap.

We need a lawyer to probe if these deals that he is getting are legal. And if they are the lawyer can tell us what to do so this kinbd of thing does not happen to us again!
And not chasrlie brtown or linda fastata they made sure it got done. They all are complicit.

this guy doesn't pay his taxes has codes violations and should not be able to bid on projects until his codes and and delinquent tax is paid and his fed loan is up to date because the city of utica tax payers have been paying on his loan people cant buy a home from the city if they have code violations and other rules in that bidding so how can someone who owes tax and codes and a fed loan that hasn't been paid bid on contracts
