Since court action has already been filed, I think the government should butt out now and wait for the court decision. As is now the situation seems ripe for some major "grandstanding" by both sides as both try to attain the higher "moral" ground. I will be keeping a barf bag handy.

And to boot that idea assumes the master's degree somehow makes them "better" teachers. I really have to wonder if that is supported by any facts at all. It's teacher attitude that helps drive student performance...not teacher aptitude. If I look back on my favorite teachers (that I think taught me the most) not a one had a master's degree.

Administration and aldermen will hold budget retreat on February 1

Quincy Mayor Kyle Moore says the Quincy City Council will meet for a budget retreat on Saturday, February 1.

The aldermen, administration and department heads will meet beginning at 9 a.m. on that day for the next step in the budgeting process. Moore said department heads will have two budgets ready for the Council: One flat budget and one budget with a five percent reduction.

Moore said the retreat will be open to the public.

Director of Central Services Marty Stegeman also gave an update on the City's snow removal efforts. 

Stegeman said the frequency of the ice and snowfalls, as opposed the the volume, has put more wear and tear on equipment and personnel over the last few weeks. He said the roads are snow packed and the salt and chloride need warmer termperatures in order to activate. He said plowing ran from Saturday night through Monday morning and would resume again Tuesday morning. 

Aldermen also approved a quote from Barnard Elevator not to exceed $10,000for the installation of a protective casting needed to continue repairs of the City Hall Elevator.
