I think that Mayor Roefaro has to do something about department heads that chastise council members for asking questions about city finances. First of all it is their job to questions expenditures and it is their job to ask questions and want to know figures that affect tax dollars. Chief Brooks was out of line and there should be something done to silence him and his tactics the way he attacked Council man Vescera. This is the second time he has shown his arrogance and disregard for citizens of this city. Once with Father Daley and now with our elected officials. We live in a democracy,If he thinks that people and elected officials don't have the right to question government and their spending it is time for him to look elsewhere for a country that does not allow that.

Councilmen or women should have to LIVE in the City, unlike our "Mary Street" council person.

Council man Vescera has a home in Trenton and a home in Utica, that is perfectly legal. What you should worry about are the police and fiefighters that don't live in the city and don't pay taxes here. You should pay as much property tax in Utica as councilman Vescera does.

Has Vescera posted his letter, and the UFD budget figures it's based on, anywhere? I'd sure like to see what all the hubbub is about.

Councilman Vescera got owned. Unfortunately all the wonderful things that were brought up about him were true. But then again some one has to speak for the many city slum lords.

So does anyone have the actual UFD budget figures showing the oodles of cash the city is making?

It's comical that was written over six years ago and not only has nothing changed there it's only gotten worse.
