WarCry - Adams County Board to vote on quarter cent sales tax to build jail - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal
If that's the way you interpret the statement then, frankly, you're an idiot. Look at all the stories about arrests for meth busts, over and over again, the same names. They don't give them more jail time partially because they don't have anywhere to put them. The crimes don't rise to the level of state prison, and we have no room at the county level. You think it's…

Build it on the current parking lot for the court house. No Transportation needed. ... Property already owned... build an underground parking lot to allow for safer transport of prisoners rather than the back door the sheriff referenced and the elevator they would have to use to get people up to the court room, they could design a better and larger elevator with a cage to keep staff save from drunk…
ReardenShrugged - Adams County Board to vote on quarter cent sales tax to build jail - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal
The way I interpret "our jail no longer meets modern day needs" is "we need a new jail so we can further grow the incarcerated population, our police force, and government power while shrinking everyone's liberty and taxpayer pocket books." We may need a new jail just due to the age and safety but it shouldn't be any larger than the current one since our county population hasn't grown,…
tomcan2 - Thrown chicken bone tops Quincy Police Blotter for 12/16/14 - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Please 'fire up' the QHS Fight Song: Any Blue Devil worth his "Q" would never call the police when attacked by flying chicken bones, they'd do exactly what they were trained to do: Get their 'potato launcher' and retaliate. Only rule: One flying Spud for every flying Fowl until one side surrenders, loser cleans up the 'injured' birds/spuds. PS Please pass the butter.

And here's the next logical question someone need to ask... What happens if this doesn't pass? Will they just stick it in our property taxes then?

I-CASH program to make stop in Quincy TODAY

7 months ago by Bryan Nichols

People's Prosperity Bank on Maine St. will host the IL Treasurer's program

Illinois State Treasurer Dan Rutherford is encouraging Adams County residents to stop by his I-Cash table at Peoples Prosperity Bank’s location at 706 Maine Street on May 15, 2014. 

Treasurer Rutherford will not be in attendance, but staff will be available from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. to help anyone wishing to find out if the state is holding any of their money or unclaimed property. In fact, 169,179 owners in the four counties where the I-Cash events will be held have $36,530,780 in unclaimed property (Adams, Logan, Macon and Sangamon counties). This is according to the January list of unclaimed property holders. 

The rebranding of the I-Cash program has dramatically increased the number of searches and claims filed. In the first month after the launch of I-Cash, the number of web visits increased by 140 percent, and the number of claims increased by 322 percent as compared to the month prior.  

The treasurer’s Unclaimed Property Division’s costs, including staff, computers and travel, are paid for through the Unclaimed Property Trust Fund, and not by tax dollars.

The Unclaimed Property Division has more than $1.8 billion in cash, plus contents from Illinois safe deposit boxes that have been inactive for at least five years. During 2013, the program returned more than $139 million in cash and other assets to their rightful owners, representing a 69 percent increase over 2010. Treasurer Rutherford took office in January 2011.

To find out if you have unclaimed property through I-Cash, you can visit the treasurer’s website at www.treasurer.il.gov and follow the I-Cash link. You can also contact the Unclaimed Property Division by calling

217-785-6998 or emailing info@Icash.Illinois.gov, although searches cannot be completed by telephone.
