It mentions budget will not adhere to 2% tax cap AGAIN. Comptroller says the finances have done a 180. Why are my taxes going up? Comptroller said the city is in the black. How could that be? Someone is fibbing. Maybe comptroller is color blind and he is seeing black when it is red?

I wouldn't be surprised if the mayor puts a toll booth on all entrances to utopia. Going to Utica would be like the scene in blazing saddles where everyone is looking for dimes. But just think of the revenue generation!

Something just stinks here. If finances have done a 180, why does the city have to continue to borrow? The public is not being told the truth about finances. If the public isn't being told the truth about the state of its finances the how can the public trust those managing it to not dip into the cookie jar?

City taxes will rise at least 5-10% for the city to build up a rainy day fund. I'm sure all members of the common council will vote to exceed the spending cap for the survival of the city. There's no way in hell the city can go a whole year with the cap at 1.66%.
