Huh. I was really expecting you to complain about all the people without fingers who would be disenfranchised by this system. That and how it would be onerous to expect someone to actually "lift a finger" to vote.

Park District will use reserves to shore up $370,000 deficit

The Quincy Park District Board of Commissioners unanimously passed its 2014 $7.9 million operating budget Wednesday night.

With anticipated revenues of about $7.5 million, the budget has a deficit of about $370,000. The Park District will cover the deficits with reserves.

The previous budget was about $7.5 million.

Park Board President John Frankenhoff said there were no major projects in the budget, but that may change if the Park District receives a nearly $1 million state grant for work on the Bill Klingner Trail at Cedar Creek. The District should learn if it lands the grant in February.

Park Board president John Frankenhoff had no problem with the budget.

"I think it's pretty straightforward," he said. "There's nothing drastic."

Commissioners approved a bid of $144,200 from Waterkotte Construction  to build  a new large shelter house at Moorman Park. That project came in about $44,000 under budget.

During the opening public comment section of the meeting, several people asked if the Park District would consider more elaborate decorations at Washington Park during the Christmas season. The Park has fewer decorations than it has previously have. Those who spoke would like the district to consider than for next Christmas.
