If you see mayor palmieri ask him why he was dodging keelers questions this morning and felt going to a genesis meeting was more important than telling the public information about the new budget on keelers show?

What could Mayor Palmieri be hiding?

The utica common council voted to side step the law once again that would require it's fund balance to remain above 3%. Here we go again. I would exspect another downgrade from Moody's and other credit agencies very soon as the city has exausted every means to pay it's vendors, bills, and employee's. This is it, Utica will be totally broke and has an unsustainable fiscal path going forward. Any projects or economic developement will hit taxpayers directly in their pockets no matter what grants are approved because Utica's track records shows over-runs and cost that taxpayers are directly responsible for. I see an unstable outlook going forward as we are sinking into an abyss of uncharctered territory where taxpayers have simply had enough and can't afford their own bills let alone the mis-mangement of this city for the last 10 years, where Roefaro being the worse and blowing through 12 million in reserves and adding to the deficit by over 6 million crushing Utica's bond rating and ability to pay it's bills, then quitting on taxpayers to take up a career following State senator Schumer. One thing for sure with dwindling revenues and homeowner to fork over anymore taxes will be faced with worrysome decisions whether to be part of furthering declines which the city has no solutions on addressing or to sell and move to higher ground as the tsunomi of debt and burden swells way over the heads of elected officials and city where incompetence and lack of spending control reaks havok and those who are left behind. Doomsday people upon us in Utica as even schools are over burden with even more and more poor kids and refugees over excerting Utica schools budgets resources we are responsible for. THE END!!!!!!!!!

The 55 person layoff is just another ploy and bluff by Palmieri to force the council to raise taxes after the brotherhoods gang up on them with threats and storming of city hall. The oh, will have to raise taxes 35% to survive, widdle it down to 20% by council and ultimately the 9.9% tax increase. We know the routine, layoff, layoff, budget pass, then rehire, rehire,promotions, new cars and cadilac benefits.

The 55 person layoff is just a bluff by Palmieri to force council to raise taxes after UPD&UFD brotherhoods gang up and storm city hall with complaints. Palmieri will say we would have to raise taxes 35%, the council will dwiddle it down and say 20% and then the inevidable 9.9% annual tax increase. They will say we laid off, we laid off, the budget passes, and then they rehire, rehire and give promotions and more raises. Council just jus call Palmieri's bluff and say OK let them all go and get to the 2% cap.

Mayor says he cut 50 jobs last year. The budget says 20 positions eliminated in police dept and also says 20 positions created. You cant count positions as layoffs if you put them back in the budget too!2012/2013 budget.

Exactly, they say they make cuts to make everyone happy, that makes the appearance that they have a sustainable budget. Once the budget passes they go back to rehiring, spending and adding the same positions which actually adds to the budget all over again. It's called deceptive practice which the city has been using for years but none did it better than smokey mirrors Roefaro who had everyone fooled or Roefaro and his team of deceptors at least thought they had fooled. You wonder why Roefaro always went to senior centers and grade schools to push his budegts and sell this deception and lies. Roefaro was a master manipulator who came up with this master plan of fraudulent practice of putting one thing on paper and doing another the in reality. It may work on dead people but not the living.

I don't know about ufd and upd but last year they did cut 9 dpw guys and never hired them back or filled the positions. They do call they few guys back in storms because they don't have enough guys. So they want to take more.
