Mayor Palmieri and the common council had a great opportunity to trim 26 police jobs thorough attrition and blew it. No one had to get laid off. State Comptroller Tom DiNapoli told them last year they need to cut public safety. And what did they do? Continued to fund jobs they could have cut. And saved millions of dollars.

Utica will go bankrupt. It's not a question of if, it's a question of when. And then they will have NOTHING.

Just think of how much property tax revenue would've been brought into the city coffers had these 26 cops lived in the city limits. Maybe that 9% tax increase could've been reduced to 2 or 3%. But I guess thats just wishful thinking.
