UPD has a perrenial 3.5% tax increase built into there contracts each and every year becoming the largest part of tax increases. Peter Firillo and Palmiera say are contractual obligations. Still frustrating how the Roefaro lucrative contracts with retirement and pensions with enormous padding remain the number one thorn in tae taxpayers side till 2015 even after he quits the family and friends benefit.

Get the State to bring in a Control Board and they have the power to void those contracts. Its long past time to wipe the slate clean and start from scratch. The Control Board is Utica's best and only option for that.

Can tax payers start a petition for a New York State control board action?

85.80 Authority for municipality or emergency financial control
board to file petition under federal statute. A municipality or its
emergency financial control board in addition to, or in lieu of, filing
a petition under this title, or the city of New York or the New York
state financial control board, may file any petition with any United

laws of the United States, now or hereafter in effect, for the
composition or adjustment of municipal indebtedness. Nothing contained
in this title shall be construed to limit the authorization granted by

Troopers make 110 000 a year to write tickets and no one complains about that. Aren't those ur taxes too . Upd makes 65 k and deals with 20 times more crap. I agree the chiefs make way too much. Palmeri can shave money from the bosses and save money by even cutting some boss positions when they retire saving thousands
