Will Utica go bankrupt or be placed into receivership by the state? From the looks of things, it seems inevitable. A 9.9% property tax increase two years ago, an 8.5% increase this year, contracts with public employee unions encompassing an increasing part of the budget,$60 million+ in debt and a crumbling infrastructure. Has anyone seen the poor condition of many of the city's streets, sidewalks and curbs lately? They're terrible -- and slowly getting worse. There's not enough money to maintain them. I knew this was going to happen. It's terrible.

It is just a matter of time. They can claim all of the surplus they want but conditions and reality don't lie.

Has to happen sooner or later. All the gov. cheese eaters will never stop and all the democrap politicians will never stop handing it out. One day....funny thing is the first ones to get hurt will be the cheese eaters but they will never understand that.

Three years tops. Population is declining and costs are increasing both at steady rates year after year. Factor in the overwhelming majority of people on a fixed income it's just a matter of time.

That's a great attitude. I hope when it does happen the powers that be have the same attitude towards you that you're displaying towards them. With this attitude it's not hard to see why no one cares about you.

Least the state will lesson all the corupt people in city hall who run for office just to say they are mayor and have no experience running a municipality. City has no growth in real jobs, yes I mean real jobs that people can retire from, yet they sit around and talk about this great harbor point. How bout focus on what's really needed, not a harbor that connects to nothing

Why miss ilion? Because of the problems in your region you think the right course of action is to let "the rich in Albany and ny" come in and worry about? Why should we have to worry about you? You caused your problems so you should figure them out. Herkimer and oneida county already pay less into the state system than they receive so what else do you want? Typical attitude that's the reason why that region is the cess pool of the state.

The harbor has been politically touted for almost thirty years. It's never going to happen and it shouldn't.

I love the whole "Bankruptcy Looms" thing that's worth it's own topix account! I think it is true too! The coolest thing is it's awesome to sit back far away and watch the inevitable explosion and making sure everyone knows who is to blame!

It's not my problem to solve that your inbreed entitled attitude that's so prevalent in that region proven by how you wanted the "rich in Albany and ny" to solve comment. All I do is sit back and laugh. When will it get through your heads that we will not solve your problems. It's a problem already solved for us in the fact that absolutely nothing but the bare minimum gets spent in that region from the state. It's not worth the investment at all.
