There is quite a bit of parking downtown. We are just spoiled here in Quincy because it is all free and most people think it is a crime to have to walk more than half a block anywhere.

Revitalization of the downtown area is supposed to bring in more visitors and more spending...therefore more sales tax $$. So the city does get some extra $$ from that. And when the TIF expires the added property value will lower tax rates for the rest of us. That's the idea of it.

There are actually ways to create "hard" parking that has grass or other vegetation growing through it. Menards even carrys one version. This allows you to have parking that doesn't look like another black ocean and it doesn't turn into mud with every rain like a lawn would. I think this type of "green" parking lot would be the most suitable use of this property. You need the extra parking…

I'm still waiting for someone to tell me what's in it for the city? What does the city get financially from the project? The empty lot is not costing us anything now. We have money for the Hobart people but we can't even keep the trees alive in downtown Quincy.

Venvertloh is running for Adams County Clerk/Recorder

Chuck Venvertloh is one of three Republicans running for Adams County Clerk and Recorder, along with Scott Stone and Rebecca Weed. They are running in the March 18 primary.

Jonathon Schoenekase is the Democrat running for the office. Georgia Volm is not seeking re-election.

Venvertloh’s first step into politics was on the township level earlier this year when he was elected Ellington Township Supervisor, taking over for Larry Ehmen, who retired from the post.

Township Supervisors, along with their boards, are responsible for all of the township functions, payroll, and accounts payable accounts. He is also responsible for the tax assessments and the township budget.

Venvertloh is the branch manager of Central State Bank’s Quincy location, where he has been since July 2000.

Venvertloh, as branch manager, is responsible for setting the budget, keeping payroll, and staying up to date on evolving banking procedures. He graduated from the Community Bankers School produced by the Community Bankers Association of Illinois in 2007.

“As a qualified and dedicated professional, I will bring professionalism back to the clerk’s office,
 Venvertloh said. “ My integrity, dedication, and financial business experience provide me with the skills required to improve the overall transparency of the office and restore communications between the county’s many departments.”

Venvertloh is a lifelong resident of Adams County, Chuck graduated from Northern Illinois University with a Bachelor of Science degree in economics. He married his wife Tracy in 1991 and together have three children: Aubrey, Max, and Clay. Aubrey is a freshman at Westminster College after graduating in 2013 from Quincy Notre Dame, where Max is currently a junior. Clay will start at QND next school year after completing the eighth grade at Saint Francis Solanus.

Venvertloh volunteers for many different local organizations. He has served as president, and currently a board member, for the Catholic Youth Organization and is also the vice-president of the Rural Adams Development Corporation. Chuck is currently the president of the Exchange Club of Quincy, where he has chaired the club’s annual Gus Macker 3-on-3 basketball tournament. Venvertloh is currently treasurer for the Quincy Notre Dame Foundation Board, and is a member of the Knights of Columbus and Saint Francis Parish.
