There are by far more important issues to focus on!! Stop picking at things that aren't illegal! How about focusing on the things the city has broken like lack of drainage systems and trying to finding buyers to buy what they broke.

As much as no one wants to hear this - there is a high tax revenue from tobacco sales and until we replace that revenue, something other than the taxpayer, we should be careful. People still have the right to travel and purchase.

Foreclosed and the power is on ?! Property could be sold but yet could be ultimately demolished? Really who are you trying to kid. This is the same person that signed a certticate of occupancy for a property with no drainage and created horrific damages to the property next door. Somehow the power and gas didn't get shut off, take responsibilty here and make changes before further damages and costs to the taxpayer, or worse yet someone get hurt.

Deputy Corportation Counsel Carl Falotico certainly has no problem going after the owner of a property for not repairing her building ( cost of several thousands of dollars)when it was allowed to be damaged by a construction not being done to code regulations or needs. Also if someone is to appear in court NOTIFY them the legal way for the state not the city's way of sticking a notice anywhere on any property. Owner should be notified! The city was notified of the damages being caused and failed to correct the problem of no drainage system. Which again if water problem not corrected and would continue to cause damage, why fix it first? Fix problem first so that way property owner doesn't fix over and over.

Mayor McCarthy hasn't fixed anything yet!! and honestly isn't going to !!! tonijean613 you are absolutely right!!
yes the downtown looks nice but half of those buildings are empty. All the bars, restaurants how will the sustain if people are spending every dime on taxes or leaving!!!
The city over the last 15-20 years has gone down hill and still going in that direction. People in Schenectady need to take their city back - look at the "funny things" that go on with the code department allowing certain people to build without following code !!??
McCarthy hasn's fixed anything and isn't going to.

Dealers will move to another area, yes. Addiction is an illness, once in recovery heads are clear and they go back out then its a choice. Doctors often are not much better then a dealer, they prescribe too easily

Tax is not the answer! We tax cigarettes and alcohol to discourage overuse- its really working?? Freedom of rights to chose how to live their lives is important. We allow all this welfare which encourages unemployment. Maybe changing that system is a better start. But one thing is for sure the TAX is out of control. New York is so over taxed its a disgrace. Come up with better ideas!
