Uticas department heads are a piss poor excuse for leadership when they can't contain spending nor work within its means. They all need to be fired and replaced with people who are true leaders and worry about spending and not the status quo which makes the departments unsustainable and taxpayers footing the bill. Fire all of them who have driven this city to the bottom and on the rocks. Uticas reputation for corruption and ruining the city has long been known and coupled with the family and friends incompetant departments heads instead of well qualified people has destoyed Utica for many years to come. The only way to turn Utica around is a fresh start and new people in every department and a Mayor from neither democratic or republican party.

This city was sunk when Roefaro was elected and the day he left office. Every single nickel the city had in reserve or revenue was spent by that incompetent slob on the public safety unions and all their pay and benefits. The state comptroller already reported Utica's costs for public safety pay & bennies are 31% compared to 26% of other cities in NYS. Thats why oootica is in the shitter.

Quit blaming UPD and UFD for all the financial troubles that Utica has. BOTH Depts. are doing fantastic jobs in preventing fires from overcoming complete neighborhoods -and- keeping crime at a minimum. Ask yourself what this City would really be like without both of these Depts. working at their very best.
The REAL PROBLEM are the political hacks that have been running this city - including the wimp Mayor we currently have. Palmieri has absolutely no leadership qualities - he just is very content to either blame someone else or just sit back and go with the flow.
There must be someone to run for our next Mayor with leadership qualities, NON-Italian,a business background, and one who isn't afraid of taking the hard road with the Unions (no pay increases and higher deductibles on their Health Ins. coverages).
The same goes for the wimps on the Common Council who doesn't have one independant brain among ALL of them - wipe the slate clean and elect ALL brand new Councilmen!!!!!
The taxpapers are all tapped out.
