Lower costs? Fewer pickups? Lower salary? The same trucks, running the same routes because some people will still be putting yard waste out. And if you think City workers will cut their own paid hours because of fewer pickups, you're delusional.

He's been contemplating his decision for the last several months while spending his time in Sarasota, Florida and still collecting his $180,000....very smart man to get away with that and still have the Board President say he's great!

If I were a betting man.... I would bet that the city council on Monday does not pass the budget. it will be like 9-5 opposed. Then a special council meeting on Thursday to try and pass a budget on Friday.

You're 100% right that it would change what some people do, including - it seems - yourself. And do you know what that would result in? Lower costs to the city.

OLC gets 30-Day Extension on Gems for 2015

Prospect League gives OLC until Sept. 1 to get new ownership in place

The Oakley-Lindsay Center has asked The Prospect League for and received a 30-day extension to see if the Quincy Gems will field a team next year.

The league had set an Aug. 1 deadline for Quincy to remain in the league. Rob Ebbing, Gems General Manager and the Executive Director of the Oakley-Lindsay Center, said the extension was needed as final proposals are still coming in from potential buyers.

Ebbing said the League granted the extension. 

The OLC hasn’t received any formal bids. Ebbing said three potential buyers are interested. Two are local and one is from outside of Quincy.

The team was put up for sale last October after losing more than $90,000 during the 2013 season.
