Politicians love to talk about consolidation and sharing services. But how often do you see municipal or local governments cut staff or assets as a result of consolidation? These efforts make great photo-ops but rarely result in savings to the taxpayers. It's all about turf protection.

Nobody in the 'burbs wants to share services with Utica because they're afraid it will be under the control of guido politicians.

I guess that because Utica can't live within it's means, they want to share services with everyone else ( spend all ours now take yours too ). How about getting rid of all the gumba's who keep running the city into the ground and hiring all their kin.
