Project to cost over $225,000

The City of Quincy will be re-surfacing their part of a road they share with Adams County.

The City Council voted Monday night to re-surface Weiss Lane on Quincy’s upper north side from 18th to 24th Streets. The Council accepted the bid from Rees Construction at $225,462.50 for the project.
