  • The Utica Memorial Auditorium is getting a facelift.
    The 2013-14 state budget includes $2 million in funding for updates to the downtown landmark, state Sen. Joseph Griffo, R - Rome, and Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi, D - Utica, announced Tuesday.
    “The Aud is still the choice venue for many of our area’s indoor sporting and community events,” Griffo said in a news release. “Renovation and improvements to the facility are still necessary to keep it as an attractive host facility for the Mohawk Valley.”
    Brindisi said the funding will help "transform The Aud and boost local economic development."
    The news release did not elaborate on what the $2 million will be used for, but said improvements to The Aud are part of a larger downtown renewal effort that includes the Harbor Point project.
