Who runs this city and the person who only buys a weeks worth of salt for an area that see's 5 months of winter. Does public safety litterally take up 90% of Utica's budget rather than the 65% it used to. If so, let the last person leaving please turn off the lights.

This blows my mind!!! The majority of the roads are neither plowed NOR salted! No other city in the state has idiotic problems like these. What a joke.

They had over half of the salt left from the 2011-2012 buget and they were bragging about it and now after one storm poof its gone and in danger of not having enough to get through 3 more month? Something is fishy here!

No, the 15,000 tons were the SALTED NUTS that work on the city dole. If the city does ever save any money it spends it within seconds. Utica's politicians have this huge spending problem wherre they spend more than they have and then ask taxpayers to pony up. Utica will never again amount to a pimple on an ants ass. All you can do is try in Utica but it never works out for most businesses which have only to deal with the broke taxpayers who own homes and 75% welfare people who get their's from the 25%.
total failure

But they did accomplish handing out promotions and raises once again and leasing a brand new fleet of vehicles which wasn't neccesary this year.

Total lack of competent leadership. Mayor was told this in the beginning and he chose to ignore it. Can you see clearly now?
