I'm not sure that is a suit - the thing on the shoulder doesn't look like anything I've seen on a suit. But I am OLD - I don't see well, I don't hear well and I go the bathroom every 10 minutes

Still voting "Yes" despite this development. Probably need the QHW to endorse Quinn to restore some order in the universe. Who knew Jesus was on the GREDF board?

City of Quincy to get federal disaster relief for flooding

5 months, 2 weeks ago From WTAD News

The federal dollars will be spent on hazard mitigation to raise the waste water equipment above the 500-year flood stage

The city of Quincy will get federal disaster relief for its sewer water treatment plant damaged during 2013 flooding.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Department of Homeland Security awarded $1.2 million for the repairs.

The federal dollars will be spent on hazard mitigation to raise the waste water equipment above the 500-year flood stage, Quincy director of utilities Jeffrey Conte said.

The contract for the work on the plant is about $4.3 million. The remainder of the money for the project will come from the city's insurance.

The city is on the hook for a $500,000 deductible that will come out of the city's financial reserve funds.

Flood waters got inside the facility and damaged electrical panels during heavy spring 2013 storms.
