Tourists with cash passing right on by?

Tom Collins
NewsTribune Senior Reporter

Will Utica close Mill Street to traffic during summer weekends? It’s being discussed.

Wednesday, Mayor Gloria Alvarado proposed closing Mill Street between Canal and Church streets from 11:30 a.m.-7 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays through Labor Day to accommodate the forthcoming flea markets and to accommodate outdoor dining.

That drew protests from several trustees.

“People see that road closed they’ll pass right by it,” warned Kevin “Chops” Stewart.

No action was taken. Alvarado agreed to inquire of business owners at the next business association meeting and, if they’re on board, to try it the first weekend in June.

“Let’s try it this once,” she said.
