The Utica Common Council held a special meeting today to vote on a bond order to make repairs and upgrades to the City's sewer system.
The order to provide the city more than $2 million for the project passed with a unanimous vote of 6 to 0 with three council members absent.

The vote needed to be passed as soon as possible before the state sewer board meets later this month.

Councilman Joe Marino said the numbers the sewer department gave the council about the project made it easy to vote yes.

Marino added that if the vote was not passed, the City would have had a much higher rate to borrow against in order to complete the project.
