You seem to be conflating Private Unions, with Public Unions. I'm quite aware of the difference ... I'm not conflating. Public unions are "worse", imo, because they influence elections. They mostly stand together in "solidarity" under the AFL-CIO banner. You say public unions should not strike, but of course they DO. Blue Flu ... it may be going on right now, to some extent ...…

What would be the harm with going forward and converting pensions to 401k's for any public sector employee who has 10 years or under, and any new hires? Phasing out pensions. This would give the employee more control of their retirement and not unaccountable politicians. This could also be rolled into a way to phase out SS for anyone who chooses.

City of Quincy looks to add late fees

6 months, 3 weeks 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.
