Gino Geruntino, WIBX

Utica, NY (WIBX) – One of the last pieces of business the Utica Common Council discussed for 2012 was a resolution urging Mayor Palmieri to enter into an agreement with Oneida County’s Department of Social Services to hammer out a Welfare to Work program that will help the municipality make ends meet. The program will help assist the City of Utica maintain blighted city-owned properties and to clean and repair city streets.

Tonight the Council voted in favor of the resolution, citing the City’s anticipated financial pressures relating to next year’s City Budget. Councilor-at-Large Jim Zecca feels this type of program will benefit the city, he and First Ward Councilor Frank Verscera drafted the resolution.

A similar resolution was passed last year urging then Mayor David Roefaro to forge an agreement with the county, however nothing came of it.
