UTICA, N.Y. -- Dozens of full-time positions have been restored at the Utica City School District.
In the initial budget, district leaders were facing a $7 million deficit, forcing them to cut nearly 100 jobs.
As of this week, that number was significantly reduced as a result of $4.5 million in additional state aid.
The budget now will restore 73 positions, 47 of them are teachers.
Despite the additional funds, the district continues to look at a deficit, and will still have to cut 22 positions.
