There is so much more to this. This was no random shooting. Someone was targeted and I don't think it was the child. Shame on a lot of people who only look at the surface and fail to see the REAL issues here. Amerika has LOST its moral compass.

A record low national job participation rate of 62.8 percent in February and we're to believe jobs have increased and unemployment has gone down. Something is rotten in the numbers and government.

Yep, businesses are going to ignore the anti-business tax climate of Illinois and line up to move to Quincy due to our All-America city status. If only that were true. Again with your slum-lords. Why don't you name one or give us an address so we can drive past and see what you're talking about?

You couldn't be more wrong, as usual. I own part of my home, and the bank owns the rest. Not a realtor, not a landlord. You said there was lack of police presence due to funding, and I asked what you meant by that. Are you saying that funding cuts have reduced police presence, or that you think there needs to be an increased presence, hence additional funding is required? It's pretty obvious…

City of Quincy looks to add late fees

9 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.
