South Utica Newsletter #11

Welcome to South Utica Newsletter #11 by Councilperson Celeste Friend! In this issue, the newsletter emphasizes the ongoing COVID-19 situation and the importance of following safety guidelines. It also discusses the denial of a special permit for a convenience store on Sunset Ave, the problem of “snipe signs” around town, and the spotlight on Bone Yard BBQ as a local business. Councilperson Friend reflects on her votes on the Council, including decisions on term limits and FOIL requests, and looks ahead to 2021 with plans for regular newsletters and a series called “Utica: Know Your Government.”
