Lower costs? Fewer pickups? Lower salary? The same trucks, running the same routes because some people will still be putting yard waste out. And if you think City workers will cut their own paid hours because of fewer pickups, you're delusional.

He's been contemplating his decision for the last several months while spending his time in Sarasota, Florida and still collecting his $180,000....very smart man to get away with that and still have the Board President say he's great!

You're 100% right that it would change what some people do, including - it seems - yourself. And do you know what that would result in? Lower costs to the city.

Body found behind Oak Street Mall

1 year ago by Denise Donley

Remains appear to have been there for "quite some time"

The Quincy Police Department report a Missouri photo ID was found Wednesday night at the scene where human remains were discovered.

Adams County Coroner Jim Keller said the remains will undergo an autopsy in Bloomington, IL on Friday.

Keller also said his top priority is releasing the remains back to the person's family as soon as possible, but is not sure when that might happen.

The remains will stay in custody of the coroner's office until then.

Officials believe the remains may have gone undiscovered for several months.

As a result, Keller said DNA testing may take longer in this case, but the time frame for making an identification varies with each case.

 

Previous story:

A body was found behind the Oak Street Mall in Quincy Wednesday night.

Officers determined the remains to have been in the location for quite some time. 

No cause of death has yet been determined.  

A tentative identification has been made, but all authorities are saying now is that the body is that of a male. 

Information as to the identity will be released at a later time.
