If a friendly police officer calls for a tow to help you after an accident, beware — that phone call may soon cost you a lot more.

Another scheme from city hall to extort money from it's citizens and landlords. Sickening...I don't think I can stomach anymore. For sale by owner!

King Gary and his merry band of liberal stooges are laying awake at night thinking of ways to fleece the residence of Schenectady. Keep voting that Democrat line, sheep.

Unreal - if that is the law then the person who makes the call should have to have the poor slob sign something that indicates that he or she understands the 40 dollar fee. Just so we can be sure.

In the bowels of city hall there is a little known office called the dept. of ridiculous fees........inhabited by dwarfs and cretins, it's sole purpose is to come up with any hair brained idea that may help to fill the city's coffers......most ideas are doomed for failure, ie: the air you breathe fee, the fee you should pay for mowing your lawn, and my personal favorite, the fee for those who no longer have their own teeth.........those are the ones that never make it to committee for discussion.....alas some do and are bandied about.......in the end those council people who may disagree initially are strong-armed into voting for such measures......so it is written, so it shall be done....

why dont you people run for office or go to meetings and voice your opinions? venting here does no good for the residents of the city, put your energy into action. if there were as many people at the podium at a meeting saying the things said here, things could change. ACT
