Wowie ... $100 million in school construction spending is announced in Utica. Add that to another $26 million proposed in New Hartford. Add that to another $36 million proposed for BOCES. Add that to another $37 million just spent in Utica on Millenium. Add that to $50 million just spent in Rome on their high school at an airport ... Lots of new facilities . . . lots of new maintenance costs being taken on.
All this spending in a region of declining population.
No wonder about where the high taxes in the region come from. No wonder about our "well educated" children having to leave the region to find jobs.
