UTICA , curley said it could create budgeting issues, joker really... you really are a clown.
A new shredder for the city clerk’s office.
A renovated comptroller’s office.
New carpeting and chairs in the Utica Common Council chambers.
Those are just some of the things city Comptroller William Morehouse is paying for with his $64,516 annual salary.
During Morehouse’s campaign, he promised to accept a $1 salary if elected; however, legal concerns forced him to accept the salary with plans to donate the money back to the city.
Corporation Counsel Mark Curley had said that if Morehouse hadn’t accepted the salary, it could create Social Security and budgeting issues for the city.
Morehouse is not enrolled in the city’s health insurance.
“I’m going to go from department to department and ask:‘What do you need?’” Morehouse said.
With no increased spending in Utica’s 2014-15 budget, Morehouse said the use of his salary in City Hall would be beneficial.
“There will be no shortage of requests,” he added.
Common Council President Frank Meola said Morehouse’s contributions help the city save money on renovations.
“His office has totally changed,” he said.“I really appreciate all the help that he’s bringing forward to our chambers and the Comptroller’s Office.”
During a recent visit to Morehouse’s office, former Comptroller Tom Nelson noted the importance of the improvements.
“I think it looks sharp,” he said.“I always thought the public buildings should reflect the community. If you look sharp, people behave better.”
When it comes to direct donations to the community, Morehouse said,“I’m looking at other options for giving back to the city.”
He added that one possibility is giving $500 to property owners through a lottery.
