Good for Beardstown but did Quinn have to wait until election time to hand out tax dollars, I think not but it can buy votes from the stupid.

It appears Quinn is smarter than Obama, at least Quinn has enough sense to order Ebola exposed people to stand a 21 day quarantine even if Obama won't stop travel between west Africa and America.

Wonder how much of our tax dollars Moe and Larry are going to hand out? They should bring Curly Madigan with them and we'll have the axis of evil all together.

And for a differing view...the largest public works project since the federal highway system...and they aren't sure why elementary kids improved but high schoolers didn't. Except they suspect it's because the younger teachers were attracted to the new elementary schools. http://newscenter.berkeley.edu/2012/08/14/la-unif...

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.
