Make it big enough to house all our criminals instead of releasing and re-arresting them. It's probably cheaper to keep them in a jail than what it costs to support them while they're out committing more crimes.

I love the thumbs-down without a dissenting comment. "I disagree completely with what you just said, but I have no idea why and can't formulate an argument in response!"

Gee, why not round it up up 10%, easier yet to calculate how much money is being taken to be pissed away by our "leaders".

Nothing here suggested to me that he wants to change "majority rules". But majority rules doesn't preclude "minority complaining". Even though it may be "getting old" to you it won't be changing anytime in the near future. Dem bashing is one of my favorite past times - so much material to work with.

I really don't care - since I think the sales tax in total is 7-3/4 --- I often wonder where that 3/4 of a cent goes :) would at least make it 8% and easier to figure.

The City of Quincy has cited the owners of the Newcomb Hotel for maintaining and unsafe structure.

The City filed against Elisha Prero, Agent of Newcomb Realty, LLC for maintaining an unsafe structure at 400 Maine on April 26.  During the night of April 17, an approximately 30 ft tall section of the east wall collapsed during a wind storm. 

Director of Planning and Development Chuck Bevelheimer said the owner of the Newcomb was served a notice and have a May 21 court date. More information will be available after the court date.

The City is working through the legal system to obtain ownership in hopes of finding a buyer who can follow through with renovations and bring the five story building back into use. The City is also considering forclosing on the 125-year-old building.

Representatives of the building's owner, Victor Horowitz, were in Quincy last week to inspect the building.

Newcomb Realty LLC owes the City about $480,000 in back taxes, principal, interest and fees from the loan, which was made in 2003.
