This situation should let everyone know where the community leaders stand and their priorities. You can't fix the streets, lower the property taxes, invest in much needed infrastructure or anything that would benefit the tax paying citizens of Utica, but you can find money for this project. The rest of the world doesn't need a big sign to tell them they're entering or leaving Utica. A 5 minute drive through the city will tell them everything they need to know. Great job!

"enough for HUGE sign and its repairs, Fire 4 police officers"
Are you illiterate? I am trying to figure out the title let alone if you are asking a question?
What are you trying to say?
Let me try to dicifer. You are upset that a sign that says UTICA is ging up while 4 police officers are fired. Did I get that right?
Well, the sign is being paid for with private moeny. For whatever crazy reason this person has, who cares. Utica is filled with crazy so it is inevitable that Uticans will do crazy stuff.
As for the police officers being "fired". GOOD! Utica has too many. But if they were "Fired" as you say then they did something wrong hence the reason they were "Fired". But I dont think that is what you meant. You probably meant their positions are not being filled because they left either by retiring or found greener pastures else where. FYI State Police starting salary is $67,000. Also police departments never "Fire" their fellow officers without public out-crying of a major injustice. And that could be a very difficult thing to do. UPD was caught planting drugs in a car and what happened? Nothing! In fact the PBA sued the Phoenix for posting the video of it.
I hope I answered your ??????

Utica has to many people on welfare also, lets ship them and all family member to some other state.

Stupidest idea ever. I don't care who's paying for it.

I never said anything about people on welfare! But since we are on the topic, how about taxpayers subsidizing the minimum wage hike? We are going to pay businesses to pay people the minimum wage. How backwards is that? And Walmarts workers collect food stamps and on medecare because they(Walmart) pays them so little and part-time that they(the workers) cant afford food and healthcare. Hows that for welfare state? How about the BILLIONS of taxpayer dollars paid to the big banks and other big corporations? Welfare! How about decade long tax breaks to corporations? Welfare!
I dont have a problem supporting people to feed themselves and receive healthcare when they need it but I have a BIG problem supporting huge corporations when they can afford to but dont pay their workers a living wage so they are forced on food stamps.
