LightsOut: CueCurtain. I hope the person you lost to suicide has found rest. Keep your chin up, and remember God loves you. No matter what. We're all just passing through.

I thumbed you up ONCEMORE1! :) <3 As you hit the nail on the head. I would only say, however, that the hate is on my brain and not in my heart.

Personnel Committee recommends raises for City officeholders

2 years, 1 month ago by Bob Gough

The City of Quincy’s Personnel Committee is recommending raises for three citywide officials whose offices are up for election next year.

The salaries for mayor, city clerk and city treasurer would remain frozen at their current levels next year and then increase by 1.5 percent for the next three years in 2014, 2015 and 2016.

The mayor’s salary is $95,732 and the clerk and treasurer are each paid $61,984. The treasurer and clerk would receive $1,500 increases if they maintain the state certifications for their respective positions.

Salary for aldermen would remain at $100 per meeting

Aldermen Steve Duesterhaus (D-2nd Ward) and Jack Holtschlag (D-7th Ward) voted to move forward the ordinance to the full City Council, which must take action at least 180 days before the next election.

“I think they deserve a raise,” Holtschlag said.

Alderman Mike Farha (R-4th Ward) opposed the raises.

“I think it’s a bad time,” Farha said. “I would support a four year freeze on all elected officers.”
