pjohnf - Quinn: New controls after Medicaid paid for dead - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Why is it with government bureaucrats that they always say they're going to close the barn door after the horse has left the barn? Millions in fraudulent payouts and now they find out. Only goes to prove once again that government is not the solution but government is truly the problem.
pjohnf - Rauner details some immigration views - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Anti-illegal immigration is not anti-legal immigration and Quinn knows it. It's disappointing that Rauner would side with the illegal immigration/amnesty crowd. It's insane and wrong to reward illegal behavior, illegal immigration, with any pathway to citizenship.

Tell that to people (Private Sector, of course) who have taken pay CUTS, shortened hours or loss of benefits just to remain employed. Somehow, I feel your comments come more from attitude and opinion than knowledge and experience.

City extends yard waste collection contract

1 year, 2 months ago by Bob Gough

The Quincy City Council has extended its contract with Evans Recycling to handle residential yard waste collection and disposal.

The one-year extension is for $529,362 from March 1, 2013 through February 28, 2014.

Aldermen also heard first reading on an ordinance to move $14,147 from the general fund to the City Council’s group health insurance fund. Quincy Mayor John Spring said more dependents were added to the plan. The ordinance requires two more readings.

And the Council gave approval for fireworks to be shot at the Quincy Country Club on February 4 with the stipulation that the display would be finished by 10 p.m. Aldermen received several complaints when fireworks were shot off at QCC at 11:30 p.m. on January 19.
