I do agree with poster that says this is to create yet more for the fire department. Funny, isn't the councilwoman who proposed this married to a fireman? Come on. It is redundant. We already have laws in place. Enforce them.

Don't we want to keep properties on the tax rolls.? Aren't I registered as an owner already? You send me the bills, I pay the taxes. Somebody has my name. It's not a secret. Why do you want to make it harder for people to own property in Utica? Instead of these stupid fines why don't you look and see who is abusing non profit status to avoid paying property taxes. Think of ways to build up the tax base, not punish people who contribute to it. If you council people think this is a viable law, you aren't very bright. I object strongly. I take good care of my properties and I have good tenants, most for many years. I pay my taxes on time and I don't see why I am now the enemy.
Look at some of the people who are giving landlords a bad name,go thank them.

What does being on the tax roll have to do anything? This designates a manager to live in utica if you are an out if town landlord. If you live in utica you'll be all set.

There's a difference between paying taxes and taking care of your property. Also what does this have to do with being on the fire department?

The aim of the law is to get out of town landlords to take care of their properties in the UTICA neighborhoods.

I agree with you. They should go through the "books" and weed out outdated or unnecessary laws,and see where holes or loopholes need closing. And while we are at it,there should be a requirement that all new laws be translated from legalese to layman's terms to aid the governed (we) in following the new laws.
Glad to go

I am a landlord and i own properties in Utica as well as Rome New York.I find it rather interesting to read these comments unfortunately I believe that no one who is commenting owns any property, I say this because I doubt if you have any understanding of what property taxes are water and waste fees or the cost of maintenance. Could you possibly imagine receiving a letter regarding the lead paint and the protection of children who are more than likely illegitimate at best, used to be called bastards which is exactly the proper terminology in English. Do you have any idea what the cost of complying with this upsurged nonsense Is. It is the reason why I am selling my properties and stopping the practice of my profession which is architecture unfortunately most of my work is a overseas which means I bring money into the United States from foreign countries.I create residual jobs four of which to be exact that will no longer be here in the city of Utica, you poor sonsabitches Will have to deal with for less working people one less producer and American currency turned into silver and shipped to a foreign country.30% of the population in Utica is on welfare this does not include SSI or other deadbeat programs.As an educated black man I am more than happy to leave the land of the slaves and the disenfranchised worker.My advice to all of you is simple stop paying your Federal and state income taxes.If all of the people who work do this at the same time these lazy bastards we'll have to finally get up off of there ass,If they riot sit back and watch your government kill them you think I am kidding look at what happened with the Boston affair two pot smoking morons this city's shut down you watch m-wraps hummV's and Blackhawk helicopters circling an American City, do you think the Boston police department is incompetent how about the Massachusetts Bureau of investigations are they incompetent just something to think about. Happy to leave a growing fascist state soon to become a third world country.
