Will the State Legion Baseball Tournament Committee be reimbursing The City of Utica for the UFD man hours and equipment that was used to pump water off Murnane Field today?

The City is broke and the UFD complement is below a safe number. Sending firefighters to pump water from a baseball field is a horrible waste of precious resources!

In times like these, such a waste of tax dollars is inexcusable. I hope Mayor Palmieri sends the committee a bill for this!

Do what I did back when I managed the Blue Sox and pour a little gas on it and set it on fire

Four firefighters
One Truck
Two Pumps
Five Hours

Pretty expensive afternoon for the already overburdened taxpayers of Utica.

Fckn city full of desperate losers. How funny!
There he goes again..sports glory, neanderthal, idiot, losers...

If I have one wish it would be to teach you a few new words to use. Sadly, that would be a task far too big for you to handle.

This is a real question...if the fire fighters and their equipment was available to do that work and they were getting paid anyway, what harm is it for them to pitch in to help out?

They are getting paid whether they sit in the firehouse doing nothing or out doing something for the community. I guess I don't see the harm. If they were incurring some extra expense then I would say perhaps they needed to be reimbursed for that. I'm not sure any expense they incurred was anything other than the gas to get the trucks there.

I don't want anyone to use Topix to disparage the UFD. We're the only city dept. that does anything! When we got done pumping off the field we had the decency to go back to the firehouse to have our chicken riggies and tomato pie. I even purchased a case of beer for them to consume for the hard work they did.(Of course, I will be reimbursed by the city) I still have my Hess gas card for my city vehicle and my personal vehicle. And I will be getting a 12.5% pay raise this Sept. on top of my $122K annual salary. Life is good, here in Utica.

its part of what they need to do for the community and isn't enough sadly. UFD should be paying back some of the money to the public in fact for what they actually do.

Ah you've once against proven my point that you are nothing but a low-life parasite who learned a new word once about a year ago and feels compelled to use it in every sentence so as to not forget how to spell it.

You continue to prove to all of us that your intelligence is second only to a rock and even then it is a close battle. You contribute nothing to society except a massive waste of oxygen. You sit back in your mommy's basement covered in oils to limit the calluses on your hands and somehow think that you except any of us to believe that you'd actually have any idea how to run a household, a business or a city. All you know how to run is your month and even that you have to keep on auto-pilot most of the time because forming a coherent thought is a daily struggle for parasites like yourself.

Now...get off of our planet you parasite
