A Local airport is vital to economic growth. Why would any sizeable business relocate to the Utica area? The airport is in Syracuse and there is plenty of vacant manufacturing space in that area. Execs flying in aren't going to drive 50 miles to visit their Upstate NY business.

Why would I relocate a business to Oneida County when I can step off a plane in SYR and be at my door in a few minutes? And use a toll road to get to Utica, that's not efficient. The Onondaga County Empire Zone offers access to tax credits and incentives to qualified businesses significantly reducing or eliminating business taxes through credits for real taxes paid, a Sales Tax Exemption for all goods and services used by certain businesses, a Wage Tax credit for new employees and up to a 10% Investment Tax Credit to those production companies and/or manufacturing businesses that acquire, construct, re-construct or erect property within an Empire Zone.

nope, they closed it down a few yeears ago. They should build an airport in the ghetto of downtown Utica. A good excuse for bulldozing down those shacks.

Steve Dimeo and his DBAG politician buddies have bullchitted us all into pouring million$ into Rome and now it is losing 42million per year with a Jewish owned aircraft maintneance facility which is on life support...

I am a pilot and hate this guy and so does the Airport Commissioner. They should have left it all alone and now it is costing us million$

the politicians destroyed this city. They grabbed up all the good jobs for their friends and family, gave out all the business loans and grants to their friends and families..brought in the bosnians (at least they are intelligent) and the somalians (poor things, their culture hasn't advanced in thousands of years)and the prisoners..so let the politicians pay the taxes it's been coming for a long time. they went to far with their gluttony. utica is doomed
