    It is the mentality of government at ALL levels. They don’t believe they should have to live within their income means like their citizens should. The government, in this case the Utica government, will steal their taxpayers money now since the taxpayers said no to them. The government shall survive,.even as their citizens perish.n

    This is outrageous. The voters said NO to the levy. The Village should not be allowed to backdoor their way into more money. How can this be legal? The voters said NO, stand up and protest people. Your rights and money is at stake. The people have spoken at the polls and turned down the request for more money, live with it and do your requests for more money legally, through the system of voting.n
