Common Council Urges Mayor To Create Welfare To Work Program

Jeanette Lenoir, WIBX

Utica, NY (WIBX) - Utica’s Common Council overwhelmingly voted Wednesday to urge Maryor David Roefaro to work on a Welfare to Work Program, a resolution by Councilman Jim Zecca, that would put welfare recipients to work performing public service in the City of Utica. The jobs would include, cleaning streets and vacant city owned property, filling potholes and removing graffiti from publicly owned property. The resolution was passed 7 to 1.

Common Council members are now reguesting Mayor Roefaro to begin negotiating an agreement with Oneida County Department of Social Services and the County Executive, to establish the program. Supporters of the bill say the Welfare to Work program will benefit both the City and welfare recipients.
