everyone should fund their own retirement ... yes. But government gets different terms, retires early with open ended promises. So those others you want to get into a retirement plan of their own are funding the early and lucrative plans of government workers.

So ISBE wants more state money. How about all the money owed to the schools from previous years? That alone would go a long way for some of the financially struggling districts. I hold no hope of seeing the $750M ever trickling down when there are several hundred millions in arrears.

Quincy Fire Department “Brownouts” to start June 1

8 months ago by Scott Hardy

Rolling firehouse closures to last no more than 24 hours

Quincy Fire Chief Joe Henning confirms to Quincy Journal.com that temporary “brownouts” at some of Quincy’s fire stations will start June 1.

The brownouts are the result of the City Council and Firefighters Union Local 63 being unable to reach agreement on a new contract.

After a meeting of the Fire Committee, Henning said the brownouts would go into effect “if, for some reason, the QFD’s man-power level drops below 16 personnel on a given day, rather than utilize overtime to man that station because of the budgetary constraints we have, we will temporarily close, or “brown-out” that station for a 24-hour period.”

Henning went on to say that the brownouts “can impact response times, will impact response times, I mean, there’s no way around that. But, I want to assure the public that our staff will do everything they can to get there as quickly as they can and be as effective as they can, and always have been”.

Staffing levels for the QFD would be affected by vacation or sick days.
