Maybe they should start freezing wages and Pensions!!!!

Homeowners are getting sick and tired of paying these high school taxes while our children drop out of school as soon as they reach their 16th Birthday.

Why not? This is what corporate businesses do when they have to tighten their belt and bring costs down?

This is what is wrong with Civil Service jobs - everyone keeps getting raises even though they don't do anything worthwhile to earn them.

I solved my problem of paying taxes in Utica - I sold my house and moved out of this crumbling cesspool called Utica.

I don't disagree with you. I guess I was referring to utica. Good luck getting those fat cows to freeze their wages. Will never happen.

Utica gets over one hundred million dollars of state aid a year towards their budget. How much more can the state give? Utica's tax base only contributes approx. 30million towards the budget. They need to make cuts or increase their tax base, bottom line.
