The Utica Common Council held a critical vote at Tuesday night's meeting.

The vote was to reverse the original vote to extend term limits for officials in the City of Utica.

The decision was reached with a 5-4 margin to move the Utica term limits back to 8 years from 12.

According to Councilwoman Samantha Colosimo-Testa, Mayor Rob Palmieri will not have the ability to veto this vote. "When I woke up this morning I felt like it was Christmas morning," said Colosimo-Testa on 'First News with Keeler in the Morning.'

One of the Councilman who originally voted for the extension from 8 to 12 years was South Utica's representative John Jacon. He lost his re-election bid this past Election Day, but changed his vote none the less.
