do they charge Dish & Direct TV a fee? I thought the cable fee had something to do with them using city property to run their wire. Does phone company pay city also?

I wouldn't be able to give a very educated response to that question, because (having this conversation in work circles) I always understood this franchise agreement to include a fee a cable company would pay to the city of Quincy for sole rights as a cable provider in town.

Mo. Lawmakers pass bill limiting jobless benefits

7 months, 2 weeks ago businessweek.com

Amount of time to claim benefits would depend on how many were looking for work

From businessweek.com:

The amount of time Missouri workers could claim unemployment benefits after losing a job would depend upon how many others also are looking for work, according to a measure given final legislative approval Wednesday.

Missouri residents currently can collect unemployment benefits for up to 20 weeks. Under the legislation, jobless benefits could be claimed for 20 weeks only when the state's average unemployment rate is at least 9 percent. The maximum duration of jobless benefits would decrease one week for each one-half percentage point drop in the unemployment rate, and bottom out at 13 weeks when the state's jobless rate is less than 6 percent.

The bill could make Missouri's jobless benefits timespan one of the shortest in the nation. Florida and North Carolina both have linked the duration of jobless benefits to the unemployment rate with the potential for their payments to halt after 12 weeks.

Missouri Rep. Jay Barnes said the measure brings more rationality to Missouri's unemployment system.
