SilenceDogood22 - New jail or no new jail? - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Absolutely not. Everyone in government needs to be held accountable for spending tax payer dollars. I'm not necessarily for the jail project (or against it). But the notion that we should "take care of ourselves" by not paying any taxes, or comparing a jail to obama phones and welfare is assinine. Almost as ridiculous as the original text of the article. We need a jail. Do we need a new one? Do…

I've asked before and I will ask again: When/If a new "justice center' is built, will the current jail and police station in town be closed permanently or will both remain open and staffed? If remain open, for the need to house prisoners awaiting their day in court, then staffing will be needed. Transportation costs will go up, to bring the prisoner from the 'justice center' into…

You are willing then to hand over a debatable amount of 25 million dollars? Without a plan, without any allocation of properties? All on the ridiculous idea it's unsafe for the employees? The county will get sued is the latest argument.... In the most secure supermax prisons lawsuits I'm sure are most common. So forgive me for not trusting the government to handle our money reasonably.…

Ambulance Board scales back levy request

2 years, 3 months ago by Bob Gough

The Adams County Ambulance Board will revise its tax levy request from the Adams County Board.

At this morning’s Ambulance Board meeting, the consensus was the Ambulance Service would recoup sufficient revenues in 2013 with its switch in billing and collections companies. The Board voted to switch from Intermedix to MBR on April 1. This means the operations will be in house with MBR assisting Ambulance Service personnel.  

At next week’s County Board meeting, the Board will vote on the overall tax rate and levy. The Ambulance levy was to be $700,000 and it will be reduced to $500,000.
