They can't close down yet, there's much more work to be done. Like teaching refugees how to properly use their stove.

Where would the rest of the world dump all there garbage for free ? Utica has become nothing more than a huge free Blue Bag for the rest of the world ! Does anyone realize how much it costs the few people on Utica that really pay taxes how much these people are costing you ? School taxes alone are probably an extra 25 to 30% in this area because of their special needs. The county medicade or whatever they get handed to them is costing you all how much more ?? And you people think Ava got stuck with the dump ? They got off easy !! Now if I was the director of that place I would be on here saying what a great thing you people in this area are doing or what a bonus to that area they are but look how much that person is making ! What, 100,000, 120,000,or maybe 130,000 a year along with the rest of the staff ? Thank God I moved ! Saw this shˇt coming years ago when there was no grant money to restore a property I want to buy because the scumbags they dumped in this area came first and after all they should because the never paid a damn penny in taxes there and I was dumb enough too !! That's when I sold my other properties and left that shithole city and county. I could go on and on but won't bother. I really wish all you real people from that area alot of luck.

Too bad they didn't teach your parents on how to properly use a condom. If they did, we wouldn't have this conversation.

I don't get it. I was raised in a different state and when I moved to this area all I heard was Bosnian this. Bosnian that. My experience with Bosnian AMERICANS is they are hard working, family orientated. Sure maybe there are some bad eggs, but there are bad eggs in every culture. An example of which would be the ignorant prejudice people who make ridiculous comments about Bosnians. Move out of the 1950s, a time period when prejudice was acceptable. Bosnians are AMERICANS and last time I checked America is a melting pot of many different cultures. Very few people can attest that they are from only one culture.

its always funny when trolls like you talk out of their ass and don't even bother to verify anything they post.

The old director was making $90K a year, not $100K +.

Check a tax return for a change and you won't look so retarded.

Utica cannot afford the refugee center. We cannot afford to teach them in our schools. We cannot afford the social safety net for any more people.
Yes they are all welcome here, but they are not welcome to any of my tax dollars until they have contributed. How can you eat ta the pie if a yu didnt a bake?

So I guess the question is. Is anyone going to actually even try to do something about it?

How about doing something about a war that is raging for 10 years now, how come nobody is doing something about that? Picking on something from the bottom of a barrel that is not that significant at all, how about something that’s been costing us thousands in lives on both sides, and billions in money.

Just so you know. I am a military vet...afghan campaign and iraq...how about since I actually fought for this country I can say whatever the hell I want. In particular, we spend WAY TO MUCH money on immgrants in Utica. Which happens to be my home. As in I was actually born here. That being said. I really wish the American government would send you people some place else. Preferably out of state.

And I'm almost positive that we spend billions on immigrants. Most of whom receive social assistance when they first arrive. How bout we cut that out. Then us citizens of this country will worry about the war and how to handle that.

By you saying that, I know 100% that you’re not a military man at all. Those who served this country know the hardship of others, those who served this country know how it is to live in a land where lawless and careless about its people feel. Those who served this country know and value for what its stands for. You know nothing about freedom and what does it mean.

so because you allegedly served in the military you get "extra" rights to say "whatever the hell you want"? Bwahahahaha!

The US spends billions more on the military than anything even remotely related to immigrants. People like you are the problem with this country, moreso than immigration ever has been. Your brazen sense of entitlement is only matched by your ego.
