You are assuming the federal government moves quickly??? 10,000 PAX in CY2013 means FAA $$ in FY 2015 which starts Oct 1...but budgets don;t get approved that early and haven't for years (can you say "continuing resolution"?). After the budget gets approved they actually then have to write a check. So counting that money this year would be folly. Should be in next year's budget though…

From://www.quincyil.gov/files/documents/document/000/000/670.2015%20BUDGET%20document.pdf The airport budget shows $249,880 in "Charges for Services". $393,250 comes from our general revenue (at least I assume all the transfers in are from the city general revenue).

Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but your "hardened" criminals crack...wasn't it just a week or two back that a felon was arrested for having a gun in his possession during a seat belt check? You never know what they're going to find on these details. But ya know, those 66 folks could have very easily avoided the tickets. Whether you like a law or not isn't an excuse to ignore it.…

There was an IL helmet law (either in place or proposed, I don't recall) back in the early 80s or late 70s. It was repealed. Federal funding for highways, etc, are dependent on certain laws being in place. The seat belt law is one of those. That happened WAY back either under Reagan or Bush 1. So if you'd really like, I'm sure the federal government could also mandate helmet laws....

City Council approves Safe Routes for Schools bid

1 year, 5 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.
