Carl should be fired !! They have the right for an attorney!!!He has handled the whole thing wrong. Again bullying at it finest !! and that is a perfect example of how the city is run! Whether the dogs are right or wrong- do it right!!

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!

the responses are complaining! and you support the officers the tax payers cant pay anymore. So you have answers and dislike the paper etc. come up with the solution. People have voiced and asked for improvements nothing is changing. Some problems are very obvious but no one wants it to change.

I am sorry if its so bad being a police officer - then don't !! they choose these jobs and the terms for their employment like the rest of us. Please remember this economy and private sectors aren't getting raises and don't have retirement and benefit packages to their level. Businesses are closing and a realistic look the city isn't doing financially well, but the taxpayer whether they work for the city or not are burdened. Please get on the side page officers and others if you don't like the way things are leave or do something to create change.

You are reading it! and please try to look at the objective side. Its a choice to be a teacher or police officer - if you don't like it the way it works - move on to something better. Obviously is shouldn't be a problem for unhappy employees to find something better after all they have excellent job skills.
