UTICA — The chief order of business for the Utica Village Council Monday was to pass an emergency ordinance updating elements of the village’s income tax code.

The changes involved the program, which went into effect earlier this year, in which businesses, especially those with multiple locations, can have the state collect local income taxes.

The system was challenged by a coalition of local governments, which objected to the state keeping a percentage of the taxes collected, but the courts upheld the law.

Law Director Sara Light said the village did not receive the ordinance changes that would be needed under the new law until the company codifying the village ordinances noticed the changes hadn’t been made.
