There are two reasons for the # of taxing bodies in IL. I kinda' hate to call them "government" because so many of them make no laws at all which distinguishes "government" from "taxing body". #1 Biggest reason -- bonding authority -- the 1870 IL constitution limited local government's debt capacitty...so the response was simply to expand the # of taxing units. Funding problem solved....…

The top ten percent of filers pays 70% of the taxes, and only about 140 million bother to file. So that is 14 million people paying 70% of the taxes. So in figuring "ROI", what we are largely seeing is what states have the rich people, those 14 million. A LOT of them are in NY, IL, NJ, MA, CA, etc. But then looking at voting, those people are only say 7% of the vote. Chicago votes very strong…

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.
