Dish and Direct do not use City property for their systems. They are satellite based..."beam me down Scotty". Only physical presence is their antenna on your building or in your yard, both private property. Don't know about the phone company. But they are required to share their lines with other carriers. So, who pays that?

This whole trash fiasco started out with the TLE's (aka Kyle Moore) Director of Administrative Services thinking the cost of Workmen's Comp insurance premiums could be dramatically reduced if the City used the totes and trucks equipped with lift devices. The decision was made to offer that service to residents at a considerable cost increase over the sticker system. The totes cost $65 up…

Here here! We must remember that in 1856, the GOP was a fledgling upstart made up of former Whigs and a few Democrats. Then, once Lincoln won the White House in 1860, the GOP held the Presidency for most of the next 50 years, except for the two Cleveland terms. So there is hope for another party to rise and take the place of the Repulicrats/Democans. The sooner the better!

do they charge Dish & Direct TV a fee? I thought the cable fee had something to do with them using city property to run their wire. Does phone company pay city also?

Company now headquartered in Alabama could move 150 jobs out of town

Quincy Compressor officials say they are considering closing the company's Quincy facility.

A news  release issued Wednesday said Quincy Compressor has "entered into discussions" with Machinists Union Local 822 regarding the company’s plan to create a centralized manufacturing facility in Bay Minette, Alabama, where the company is now headquartered and has its largest manufacturing plant.

In a proposal made to the Union, Quincy Compressor said it would consolidate the Quincy operations into its facility in Bay Minette.

Quincy Compressor manufactures reciprocating and rotary screw air vacuum pumps and air treatment components.

Quincy Compressor has about 150 employees in Quincy and 600 in the U.S. and China.

Company officials met today with local employees but only commented to the media via news release.

"The city of Quincy will always be synonymous with our products," John Thompson, president of Quincy Compressor LLC, said in the release. "This is a difficult, but necessary, announcement to make. We have taken the first step in opening discussions with the union to get their input on our proposal."

Ross Miller, business representative for the International Machinists Union Local 822, told KHQA News that company officials told union represenatiaves that the cost of doing business in Alabama is cheaper and that the company asked union employees to make concessions to reduce costs.

Miller expects negotiations to begin in June. He said it’s unclear whether the union would concede or whether it would stand firm.

Mayor Kyle Moore said " I have reached out to the company and union representatives to let them know the City of Quincy will do all we can to keep the plant open. I am hopeful the two sides can reach an agreement to keep Quincy Compressor in Quincy."
