Hey moron, don't blame the bad weather on why Utica has so many pot holes and craters. It is a lame excuse. Blame it on the lack of maintance during nice weather. Nothing is done to pave or repair streets in the city. 2 million was budgeted foe repair work and was never done. If you don't maintain, common sence tells you the roads will deteriate. It's a no brainer Short, you think we stupid like you?

We should not have to repair or replace sections of roads that were done within the last 6 yrs. Who ever gave out these contracts should be fired or removed from office and the council people who approved these contracts should have it's cost deducted from their pay or also removed from office..

Genesee Street was done less than 2 years ago by Palmieri and crew. He hired friends and did shit job. But basic maintanance has been ignored since Palmieri took over and that is why Utica roads are destroyed. Don't blame the past Rob, blame yourself.

Good job mayor I saw you sweeping off the bridge. DPW crews were drinking coffee and telling you what a great job you were doing.

The whole city has been falling apart for 50 years why do we have 100 year old water pipes like owning a house you know things don't last for ever you replace and maintane thins as you go if the water pipes lasted that long you were lucky but if you had kept up on maintaing them you would not be haveing them break in the dead of winter. We pay taxes for these things to be maintained and when things go wrong they say we have an ageing system blah,blah,blah it is our fault now we should get on them to start doing there job LIKE IN OUR JOBS IF WE DON'T DO IT WE GET FIRED

The pothole killer was sold at auction as surplus property to the City of Detroit, Michigan. You can't make this stuff up.

I think central paving contract should be cancelled. They use shit blacktop mix. New roads should not be coming up.
