I do believe the QPD cuts effect the citizens of Quincy less than the QFD cuts. I'm not aware of any recent increase in crime other than the unfortunate shooting of a young man that would not have been prevented if we doubled the number of officers on the street. As for QFD...I happen to live on the edge of the city and the nearest fire station is about 3 miles away. Nobody has ever demanded…

The wasted Hydro dollars would have provided for four officers for the next 10 years based on current cost. But the Dems spent the money in the city and the Dems spent the money in Springfield. They kicked the can down the road so they could look good.to the voters. When it comes to safety Quincy needs more police than it does firemen. Our cops are on the street 24-7 handling all kinds of situations…

City now has parameters for residential swimming pools

The Quincy City Council approved an ordinance updating zoning regulations, including parameters for residential swimming pools.

City Planning and Development Director Chuck Bevelheimer said there were no rules for pools on the books, but with more people having larger, above ground pools, he believed some parameters needed to be set.

Alderman Terri Heinecke (R-7th Ward) asked about the requirements, which requires pools to be set up in backyards. Bevelheimer said the city had received complaints about pools in front yards.

Bevelheimer said homeowners could seek variances if they didn’t have backyards or their backyards were sloped and wouldn’t support a pool.

Along with pools, the ordinance also includes regulations for other residential structures including garages, fences and signs.

The ordinance passed 8-6. Heinecke opposed it along with Virgil Goehl (D-1st Ward), Lexze Mann (R-1st Ward), Mike Farha (R-4th Ward), Tony Sassen (R-4th Ward) and Jim Musolino (R-6th Ward).

Aldermen also received the report of the Quincy Animal Control Commission. The report recommends an increase in the cat license fee and for the city to reinstate a second animal control officer. Click here to read the report.

The report was sent to the Quincy Police Department for review.

The Council also approved the purchase of 1 million trash stickers from Midland Paper for $9.875.
