Merging police departments is just plain common sense. No need for a 50K dollar study funded by some grant. I'm guessing this study will take 2 years to complete before they finally shelve the idea. Meanwhile, that 50K of grant money will be pocked by a few local goombahs and all their friends and family members while the city gets stiffed yet again. It should be somebody's job to investigate how every single dollar of the grant money is allocated and spent. It should be this way with any grant or free money Utica or Oneida County receives.

Took the Town of Clay about 8 months. Very unanimous vote. Huge savings. Won't happen here to many Kingdoms. This area can not even agree on one 911 center. These studies have all been done before. This is an area of studies and nothing more is correct.

I agree with all the above comments. there is NOOOO Need for the amount of PDs in the Yorkviile, Whitesboro, Whitestown, Oriskany or New York Mills area. They should be combined as one. Oriskany shouldnt even have a police department but thats beside the point. MERGE!!! Pay the one time hit and save hundreds of thousands if not millions in the long run.(Over several years of course). Form one knowledgeable PD with a Chief, Dep Chief so on etc... Get rid of rinky dink departmenst such as Yorkville and Oriskany who dont do much other than issue traffic tickets and have cases go unsolved forever. MERGE Now!!!
