You're reading the headline, not the article. I would like for you to quote one line from any reliable source that talks about an executive order. This article talks about "executive action." And it does so because the BAFTE is a department of the Executive branch of government (you remember the three branches, right?). This is not to say that the current president doesn't support the action,…

Are you daft? He may or may not support this? The whole point of the article and many others is that he, Obama, is signing a executive order to do this. Proposing a reclassification is one thing but signing an executive order is another. You covering for him is almost laughable if it were not for the erosion of our rights by this man and administration.

City of Quincy looks to add late fees

8 months ago by Bob Gough

City Treasurer wants to add 6 percent to bills not paid in 30 days

The City of Quincy's Finance Committee supported a proposal from City Treasurer Peggy Crim to add a 6 percent late fee for bills not paid to the City within 30 days. 

Crim said it is a flat 6 percent and does not compound. She said the City currently charges no late fees and she hopes the action will incentivize people to pay promptly. 

Such bills include stores who are billed for trash stickers they sell, rents, leases and other services they City may charge for including the cost of mowing property in nuisance abatement situations. 

Water bills are not affected as the City already charges a late fee on them. 

The resolution will go before the City Council in two weeks. 

Aldermen also approved the low bid of Illinois Ayers Oil Co. of $57,783 for necessary fluids for maintenance of city owned vehicles for the next year and a quote from a Florida company for $5,562.50 for 275 gallons of mosquito spray.
 
Sixth Ward Alderman Jim Musolino also said there would be a meeting Tuesday evening for those who are interested in the upcoming work being done on Melview Road. The meeting will be at 1726 Melview Road at 6:30 p.m.
