MAYOR PALMIERI ANNOUNCES COMMUNITY BUDGET MEETINGS WITH RESIDENTS

Mayor Palmieri today announced he will conduct four community meetings to present his proposed budget and address questions from the residents.

 

The Mayor’s $72.5 million proposed budget increases spending by less than 1% annually compared to the City’s FY 2008-2009 budget 10 years ago.

 

Over the past six years, the City successfully executed its financial recovery plan, resulting in credit rating upgrades by all three of the leading financial institutions, Fitch Ratings and Standard & Poor’s Global.

 

The City has also seen tremendous improvement in its fiscal stress score according to New York Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli’s Fiscal Stress Monitoring System.

 

The schedule for the community budget meetings is as follows;

 

East Utica/Cornhill- Wednesday February 14th 5:30pm, Empowerment Center (230 James St)

North Utica- Monday February 26th 6:30pm, North Utica Senior Center (50 Riverside Dr.)
