I think Carl is on his last legs and will be gone - none too soon. As for Dick M - finding out why he got ousted falls in the category of looking a gift weasel in the mouth. I will take this opportunity to repeat my creed - there is no such thing as a wasted vote if you vote for what you believe in.

So, those of using private haulers, who have been subsidizing garbage pick up for years for those who chose to use stickers, now get to pay even more? This isn't going to end well for the Kyle administration.

Been saying this for a couple years now, and I really heard about it last election cycle because I voted for Grimm instead of one of our two Chicago choices. Keep the faith, we're never gonna get a good candidate untill we start to peel off the "I voted for the lesser of two evils" cowards, and get them on our side. I always wondered why Dick Morris lost his job at FOX (as he should have)…

I have been thinking the same thing, is there a $1000 tax in the works for UPS, FedEx and DHL? Maybe the Federal Government should take a page out of this administrations play book and levy a tax on their competitors trucks. and I am with you on the list of customers, that seems to be serious overreach on the part of any government. The s**t storm of the city rejecting privatization just keeps…

Three men interviewed for executive director position

The Quincy Park District Board of Commissioners interviewed three people during a lengthy closed door session Tuesday night. 

The Park Board closed the meeting almost immediately after it was opened. Quincy Journal was the only local media to cover the meeting where the three candidates for the job were scheduled to be interviewed. 

The Park District also put paper over the glass windows on the doors leading into the meeting room. 

The Park Board can discuss employment issues and conduct interviews in closed session under the guidelines of the Open Meetings Act. 

Three men who were not on the Park Board were seen going into and being around the building at various times Tuesday night. 

Jeff Steinkamp, former City Engineer for the City of Quincy and currently a Technical Manager / Community Liaison with the Illinois Department of Transportation, was the first to enter the building. He was being interviewed in the meeting room by the Park Board.

Rome Frericks, Director of Parks for the Quincy Park District, was already in the building, but entered the meeting room to be interviewed.

Doug Olson, former human resources director for the City of Quincy, was the last non-Park Board member seen entering the building Tuesday night. 

The Park Board is expected to take up the executive director issue again at next week's meeting. 

 

PREVIOUS STORY

The Quincy Park Board will interview three finalists for the Park District's executive director position tonight.

The Board has called a special meeting starting at 6 p.m. where the candidates will be interviewed.

Quincy Park Board President John Frankenhoff said the meeting would immediately go into closed session. Frankenhoff also would not disclose the names of the three finalists.

Ed Seger announced he was leaving the district seven months ago. Seger was named as interim director following the departure of Dan Gibble, who was hired in September 2009 after serving as the director of the Urbana Park District, and Seger was eventually given the job.

Gibble, whose family never moved to Quincy during his approximately 2.5 year tenure, resigned from the Quincy Park District in January 2012 and became the executive director of the Sycamore Park District in February 2012. He had interviewed for the Sycamore job in December 2011. 

The Park District received 21 applications for executive director and the Park Board narrowed that list to three finalists. 

After previously paying the Illinois Park District Association for searches in the past, the Board decided to handle this search themselves. 

Frankenhoff has said the new director might not necessarily be someone with a background in parks, but it could be someone from within the community.
