No Public Comment At Utica Budget Hearing

Utica, NY (WIBX) -  The city’s property taxpayers apparently don’t have much to say about Mayor David Roefaro’s proposed budget.

No one spoke at a public hearing on the budget proposal last night. The plan calls for a tax increase of 3.9-percent, or an additional $47 a year for the average homeowner.

The council is expected to vote on the budget tonight. Two issues still needing resolution are funding for the Utica Public Library and a federal SAFER grant.

Councilors will decided on whether to cut the library’s funding in half, from $300,000 to $150,000.

And they’ll decided on a grant which would allow the city to add eight firefighters at no cost to taxpayers for two years.
