Saranac Thursdays and UPD, City of Utica

If you put the pieces of the puzzle together you get the true picture why the City of Utica endorses
the type of activity that results from Saranac Thursdays. What type of activity you ask, well let me begin to start with promoting a area that pumps alcohol into people who are known to drink and drive, yes the bar owners have no idea because of the flood of party goers from the event mentioned above. I love the Brewery and I believe in free enterprise and know the bar owners mean well and are there for entertainment purposes and good food only. The amount of arrest that occur after the event are great for the City of Utica and the Utica Police Department and keep our City running. But this is not a way to generate revenue for the City. We need to make our area more business friendly, The County Legislators that continue to keep the sales tax at the current rate that only was intended to be temporary don't help the equation either.
Where are the family friendly activities that the City endorces that don't include alcohol?
Do you know let our readers know they would appreciate it.

55 Million Dollar Deal with the Oneidas

The two Oneidas are at it Oneida County and the Oneida Indian Nation have brokered a back door deal that is said to be of benefit to all parties involved.
If one was to believe back door politics is a way to do business then I am writing this in vain.
This deals smells of rotten fish. The Legislators have an obligation to say no to this bum deal and go back and demand what we are justly due, 3 figures not 2 and a end to land claims with no taxes, and comply with tax laws that are fair for all businesses.

Picente says Sales tax may never drop! Tanoury Jr. disagrees

Yes he said it folks at Wednesdays Board of Legislators Meeting. Is he for real? Already a State High 8.75% He wants to keep the promised reduction of .75% for another 2 years and HOG IT ALL. Yes HOG IT ALL, he does not want to distribute a fair share to municipalities in the County like Utica and Rome. What a BOZO if he looses the .75 he is talking raising property taxes 30%. Get this guy out of of office please, is he for real? Not all agree with this madness including Utica Legislator Larry Tanoury Jr.

Spending cuts are needed to relieve the .75% cut period......................

Not all county officials agree that the full sales tax rate should continue as is.

During Wednesday’s meeting of the Oneida County Board of Legislators, Legislator Larry Tanoury Jr., D-Utica, said some of the revenue from the 0.75 percent tax should be distributed to municipalities in the county because federal economic stimulus funding will relieve some of the county’s Medicaid costs.

Thank You Larry Tanoury Jr. for sticking up for Oneida County and Utica
