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.
