Utica Common Council
Zach Lewis, WIBX
Utica, NY (WIBX) – The proposal to reduce the number of Utica Common Councilors, drafted by second district representative James Zecca (D), was sent to committee for further review. 

Zecca, in an effort to save taxpayer dollars, would like to reduce to body from nine voting council members to eight and allow for the Common Council President to cast deciding votes.

“We have to modify government, we can’t be exempt from this”, Zecca said, adding that “we’re talking about budgetary issues, if we reduce the council there is a savings, bottom line”.

The committee that will review this proposal to downsize will be made up of all council members, any change will require voter ratification in the form of a referendum.
