UPD & UFD just don't get it and they are making the whole city and process look like a sham and business as usual. Why does Utica have to have the highest percentage of it's budget, 60%, in the State or country if it is NOT affordable? Why do they feel like they are the privilaged, and elite untouchables? The taxpayers are the employers and we have the employees telling us they want double the average our salary and 60% of our budget. Well, I think it's about time the council, E&A, and the Mayor say THE PEOPLE, THE TAXPAYERS WHO PAY YOUR SALARIES HAVE SPOKEN AND TOLD US WE WILL LET THEM HAVE 50% OF THE BUDGET NOT 60%. We do not have to keep taking off our table to keep putting it on your table. TAKE THE 50% or LEAVE IT you WILL NOT GET 60% ANYMORE PERIOD. You have and continue to break the cities bank and the taxpayers, your employers says ENOUGH IS ENOUGH AND WERE NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE. Were the BOSS and our CEO is the Mayor and have told him to make ALL necessary cuts to save money to pave our streets, improve neighborhoods and fix our infrastucture. Demands need to be met and made because the taxpayers are the board and want it to happen. Let's make it a reality that 50% is all your getting. All of this due to Roefaro's gift contracts to UPD & UFD. How does he walk the streets?

If any of these leeches feel "elite" or "untouchable" just mention their names they're not so hard to reach out and touch!

It is un-real that Utica will never change it's MO. They will gut city services just to have a over bloated, over paid UPD and UFD. This city would rather give them 100% of the budget than right size it even if our population goes to 10,000. fk-n pathetic pieces of shit. We need Elsie the cow.

I don't believe we spend 60% on the police and fire departments. Show some proof criminals

No it's probably over 60% this year as it's health care costs and padding Roefaro put in contracts goes up every year and federal grants will be running out soon and will be paying for seven more employees in a few years.

It will be more like 75% once the federal contracts expire and were on the hook for several more officers and firemen. Utica is doomed for failure as your big shot ex-mayor roefaro got caught up with tax and spend Schumer a democratic spending machine making taxpayers government realiable and unable to stand on there own to feet. Many will sell or lose their homes.

You wanted an undertaker for mayor and you didn't expect to get buried and left with a hefty bill.
