Proposed Utica school budget tax hike: 8.42% screams the headline.
This hike on top of the water rate hike, the sewer rate hike, city tax hike, county tax hike, electric rate hike . . .
35 positions are being added . . . on top of the 60 that were created last year. Included are two $100K administrators.
Sorry, but the increase in immigrants simply does not justify this.
The private sector is shedding jobs. The public sector needs to do the same.
The public will only take so much.
With the arrogance being displayed by the UCSD . . . things could get ugly.
