And you're making the opposite mistake....saying that each thing, when added together, becomes a total justification. That's not how you justify expenditures. You have to make the case for EACH item in it's own right. And you do that compared to what it would cost to fix it in place...assuming you do have to fix it...which apparently we don't...because it hasn't been done.…

But if everything is already under construction, there is nothing that can be done. I have been involved with a lot of bid projects and there are always cost overruns. In fact, the contractors live for the over runs as it is how they make extra money. The words will be "change orders" and everyone will just have to bend over. I stick with my original post above, this project, if passed, will go…

If this was a responsible persons car it would of not got this bad, they would of took care of these issues as they came along, rather than waiting to dump 3 grand in at one time. But just for the sake of argument It sounds like this car has about 200,000 miles on it and its probably worth about $800, because cars don't hold their value especially when they are ragged out. So yea this is a no…

I've seen a couple of "studies" that supposedly try to show facilities matter. Totally unconvincing. Do you have a reference for something that shows the school building really matters? I can believe that facilities impact teachers more than students. Maybe if they maintained the buildings they wouldn't be so bad. And the ratings you quote are based on performance....not facilities.…

Actually you only need 20 years for Tricare. Until you reach Medicare age. Tricare is one of the big benefits now. Moreso now than it used to be.

City of Quincy beginning HR interviews this week

5 months, 1 week ago by Bob Gough

Three finalists will be interviewed

The City of Quincy is interviewing three finalists this week for the position of human resources director. 

Doug Olson left the position earlier this month to take a job with Hollister-Whitney. 

Director of Administrative Services Glenda Hackemack said there were seven applicants for the job. 

The three finalists will interview with Hackemack and the City Council's Personnel Committee and the Hiring Committee. They will narrow it down to two to refer to Mayor Kyle Moore for his decision and then he'll take his appointment before the City Council. 

At Monday night's brief City Council meeting Aldermen heard the latest Sales Tax revenues for February, $665,464 and Home Rule Sales Tax of $643,720.
 
They also heard the second reading of an ordinance to allow Adams Telcom a nonexclusive franchise to install a cable system in Quincy and to allow the sale of beer and wine at the new restaurant going into Quincy Regional Airport. 
 
Those items will receive a third and final reading and a vote at next week's meeting. 
 
Mayor Kyle Moore was absent and Alderman Mike Farha presided over the meeting.
