There have been some changes at Utica City Hall.

Mayor Robert Palmieri says Dave Short, who currently serves as Commissioner of the DPW and Parks and Recreation, will now also serve as the new Director of the Youth Bureau.

Lonnie Jenkins will become the new Recreation Director and  Sean Brown will now serve as the Recreation Specialist.

There are also changes in the office of Urban and Economic Development and the Corporation Counsel's office.

Palmieri says the changes will make the operations of the departments more efficient and with recent retirements, will not increase the city payroll.
