The City of Utica is considering changing the residency requirement for police officers to live in the city, as the Police Union and the city negotiate a new contract.
If the requirement is lifted, Utica Police Officers could live outside the city, but only after living in it for five years. There would also be a $3,000 ‘commuter fee’ deducted from their annual salary. The Common Council could vote on this at their August 8th meeting.
