Palmieri and Brooks have no creditability and lie to the public to justify their positions and budget.This city needs a control board and it needs it now. Palmieri will make Roefaro look like a piker when he gets through with the taxpayers. The OD should publish all public safety workers salaries in the news paper.
The OD will never do something like that, as they are nothing more than the media wing of city hall. Any newspaper that did actual investigative journalism would have a field day with the cronyism and backroom deals.

Since you seem to have insider info...

What else do you see as an alternative to reduce spending?

How about Ithaca FD looking to add some volunteers ?

Some 40 plus Officers in supervisory positions in charge of some 60 something men on the UFD seems to be a little overkill, We do not need all that rank on the UFD costing the taxpayers thousands in extra pay for these employees. Take home cars by personnel like the chief is not necessary, he is not a first responder. The chief's car should be left at city hall after the work day and he should take his personal car home from there, and
as far as the assistant chief, that position works days with the chief, he should be working nights and if that was the case you could reduce the number of deputy chiefs to 3 from 4 saving another $100000 plus, and as far as captains, all you need is 5 captains, one for each fire house, no need for 7 or 8 whatever.

The car on Trenton rd is the officer that has the drug and bomb dog so can be called in at any time u idiot. Also kamakazell how about the milkers of the fd who have been out and still collecting pay checks or the large law suit just dropped. The utica od is a bunch or morons and don't do any investigation unless it's one of their Cronys. It was front page when the law suit was filied but when it was found to be a lie AGAIN they put in a little piece. Still plastering names but "protecting" others. The od is just as bad as the city leaders why don't u talk about all the mismanagement of brooks doing whatever the F he wants and gets away with it. The leaders, the OD and elected officials are all in one another's pockets and they could care less about doing the RIGHT THING. I'm so glad I left the city but continue to hear what goes on. ITS A JOKE

Brooks has a 2014 Escalade at his disposal...24/7. He also has a gas card the city pays for. The vehicle has a small freezer to keep cool drinks and a special coffee maker just for his use when on duty. He is forbidden from using the coffee maker when at home. The vehicle is also equipped with 2 fully automatic M-4's...capable of firing 32 rds. in 1.5 seconds in case he responds to a fire scene with a hostile crowd. He also has about 5,000 rds. available to him in the back hatch. There's also a rumor the UPD acquired for Chief Brooks a B.A.R. that he keeps in the vehicle but that hasn't been proven.

We need to worry about the BLACKS, free food, rent, heat, plus trillions in medical.

They have the highest rate for communicable disease in America, and heart problems. One heart problem will cost you taxpayers between 100 and 300 grand EACH.

Then we must pay higher prices at stores to make up for theft and higher security.

Higher insurance, for auto theft, higher home insurance, all the way around they cost trillions more then the people needed to control these animals.

Yes, if the blacks are gone, the UPD and FD can be cut in less then half.

Taxes will drop 80%, state, county, city. Also, crime, communicable disease. Plus all the young people who were meant to have min wage jobs will have one.

No actually you couldn't because you overweight uneducated fu cks wouldn't have a welfare job. Try again trashy. Kind of like if there were no prisoners...your job at the prison would be eliminated.

The utica public sector unions are destroying our city finances with unyielding contracts. Public safety contracts in the city don't even allow the city to hire parttime officers or fireman. Have you ever heard of such a thing in the private sector???The elected officials allow this to continue at the expense ot hard working utica taxpayers. Very sad state of affairs.

That's ok. Eventually the city will just tax everyone out and they'll be left bankrupt and all the fat pigs in government will be left with nothing. If you have property in utica try to hold on and hope for bankruptcy. It's the best thing that could happen.
