Isn't the true cost of this thing closer to $50M? Isn't that going to be the cost of the bonds? Might be $25M to build but funding it typically costs about twice as much. So that would put the average per household cost closer to $100 per year.. You can't just throw floors on top of a building...especially when they have to be built out of reinforced concrete. There's a little…

Yes, We! Let's raise taxes, so We don't have to work. Let's raise taxes, so WE have free health care. Let's raise taxes so WE can have a free cell phone. How about in a capitalistic system ( sorry you feel that to be a dirty word) we take care of OURSELVES and quit letting GOVERNMENT waste OUR damn money.

Quincy Guy why don't you step up and make a donation if you want all these luxuries. The problem is I will end up paying some now and more later. Same BS as the school referendum.

You can pay some now or you can pay MORE later. Kicking the can down the road is what got the jail in the shape it's in now. Kicking the can down the road Is what got the school buildings in that shape. Kicking the can down the road Is what got Illinois in the shape it is now.

City Council approves Safe Routes for Schools bid

1 year, 11 months ago by Bob Gough

Advertising contract unanimously approved

The Quincy City Council unanimously approved the low bid for the Safe Routes for Schools project.

Aldermen voted 13-0 to approve the $2,950 bid for the AdForce Advertising Agency to develop commercials and brochures.

There was no discussion on the vote, which had been tabled twice when Alderman Terri Heinecke (R-7th Ward) had questions about the bid process in which Quincy Mayor John Spring said a mistake had been made when a local company was asked to bid a certain amount by an employee in the City's Planning and Development office.

Aldermen also heard first reading on the 2014 Fiscal Year budget. The $31.7 million spending plan will be voted in on two weeks.

Department heads will give the City Council details on their respective budgets this Thursday at 5:30 p.m. at the Kroc Center.

The Council also accepted two recommendations from the Plan Commission: Approval of the special permit to use property located at 439 N. 3rd for vehicle sales and service and a zoning change from M1 (Light Industrial) to D4 (Downtown Industrial) for the north part of property located at 220 Oak.
