This mayor is a poor leader. He thinks he is the smartest one in the room. How can you move an organization in the direction it needs to go when the leader is not competent?

I don't see why not.

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.
