Man disappointed in Utica’s changes

I returned to the little town of Utica recently. I found many things have changed.

The community building that was used for the town has been turned into a private club. Will the park be taken away next?

The historic school building will be changed to an apartment for unwed mothers, I am told. This should be preserved. The board seems to no longer for the community, but for a select few.

What is next. Will they turn the cemetery into condos on the hill overlooking the river and remove the dead?

A community building is no longer for the community. The school was given away by the board. You should be ashamed of yourselves. What is next ... change the name of the town to Wealthyville? It seems that way.

Utica is no longer the friendly little town, but for the wealthy few. Take your town back before it is too late.
