Aldermen are not voting on this until September 8. And next week's meeting is on Tuesday because of Labor Day. BG

If you want get an idea of what you might pay with my proposal get our your winter water bill and look at the usage in CCF. Multiply that number by $0.16 and that's the ballpark for what you would pay. Many ways to compute this...but this will probably work out for you to be about the same as your paying now with stickers. Average usage for accounts in Quincy is about 16.5 CCF or $9.99 per quarter.

If we want to do something about this how about change.org? Question is...who do we bombard? The Mayor? Or set up a petition for each pair of aldermen? Or put them all on the notification list? Of course we're probably too late too as this will be on Monday's agenda to spend the money. Three days probably isn't enough time.

There's at least one alderman who's going back out and actively asking people in their ward for their opinion on the issue not. It's NOT something that was previously done, so apparently at least one of the 14 has sat up and noticed "Hey, maybe we didn't get it right last time?"

Nancy Grace likes to say a lot of stuff. Occasionally, she even accidentally stumbles onto something that's true. This isn't one of those times, in my opinion.

Women’s City Club now Lorenzo Bull Park

The Quincy Park Board revealed at Wednesday night’s monthly meeting that they’ve received 21 applications to replace Ed Seger as Executive Director.

According to Park Board President John Frankenhoff, “We’re pleased. We’ve got a wide diversity of people interested in leading the park district. We’re going to narrow that list down and move a certain number of people to Phase 2. Then in August, we’ll narrow it down to who we actually want to interview. So, I think we’re on schedule for someone to take over later this year.” 

Seger announced earlier this year that he would be stepping down as Executive Director at the end of the year.

The Park Board voted to name the Women’s City Club grounds at 15th and Maine Lorenzo Bull Park. A new sign will be installed at a cost of $3,000, which is covered by the Park District’s corporate reserves.

Those corporate reserves will also pay to install a lighted 25-foot flag pole in front of the Park District’s executive office on Bonansinga Drive. The idea for the flag pole came from public comments at several previous meetings about the desire to have an American flag flying in front of the office. The total cost will be $2,000.

The Park Board also voted to continue participating in the State of Illinois Federal Surplus Property Program.

Director of Parks Rome Frericks told the Board his crews should be able to start working on clearing debris from Clat Adams Park Thursday. It’s not clear if new grass is going to have to be planted because of the flood waters from the Mississippi River. Frericks also reported that work on the new playground in Riverview Park is complete.

Director of Golf Matt Burry said that as of now, the Little People’s Golf Tournament has reserved dates for 2015. On the eve of this year’s tournament, Titan Wheel announced they would no longer be able to sponsor the tournament.  

Director of Program Services Mike Bruns reported that Berrian Park’s tennis courts should be converted over to pickleball courts by the end of the month. Two pickleball courts are being lined and resurfaced, with room to expand to six if there’s a demand for them.
