The James St police station will now be used for the food bank. Only in Utica could this happen. Spend half a mil of tax payers money for this. Wasted money again.

We have never used this building once for a real police function. It truly was a joke.

With over runs on construction costs and all the local politicians and contractors having a hand in it, it was well over $500,000.00 to put up.
This will end up being the food banks permanent home.

Have to admit this is a sad outcome for what should be a great police resource. Maybe with 2 Armadillos they no longer can justify the substation, so they're making up for something useful? My question is howoften will the food bank be robbed?
