It is a drop in the bucket but the $2 million as left out of the budget this year even though a referendum mandating that amount was passed by the voters of Utica a few years back.

It was just another of the reasons that the mayor sounded so foolish when he announced a surplus earlier this year.

Not much meaningful paving can be done with a quarter million dollars. I'm guessing we'll see a lot of pickup trucks filled with cold patch to be shoveled into potholes and the mess left by the water authority.

Pretty sad when a city with a "surplus" needs to rely on small grants to do what it's supposed to do.
The only surplus we have is a surplus of useless and incompetent politicians.

Road repair contracts is a euphemism for repaying campaign contributions in NYS.

Utica really does suck, I was once proud of it here but now it is an embarrasment.
