With all due respect, Migraine... I'd say it's an even sadder day (than you seem to think it is) when a lazy/tasteless joke about a plane crash is what passes for "humor" on this site. http://www.snopes.com/media/goofs/ktvu.asp

Good for Mr. Young. But I don't think any of the Liberal, African-American "leaders" like President Obama or Al Sharpton will pay any attention to him, especially because he makes sense.

I think you're down-voted for the hypocrisy of being against one law defining social mores, but being for another that does the same. If you're concerned about the so-called rights of gays to marry, why aren't you concerned about the rights of 15-year-olds to marry, or cousins to marry, or brothers and sisters, or polygamists? It's only because you agree with the age of consent…

HuhWhy - Airport manager Hester resigns - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
A large Republican 10-4 majority on the City Council is fractured on almost every policy issue and it appears the Mayor has difficulty counting votes or swaying council members. City employee morale is low and employees are fearful to be proactive in the current City Hall environment. Some will say this is "cleaning house" that is long overdue. Others say that this is inexperience and incompetence…

City of Quincy looks to add late fees

1 year 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.
