Righty1 - Council adopts budget by 8-6 vote - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
The council decided that cheap garbage and free yard waste was more important that public safety. We got new garbage trucks instead of policemen. These were just a few of the alternatives the mayor offered to fund city government but the "Buds" on the council kept voting NO. There is no FREE LUNCH. No firemen were fired and no policemen were fired so it's not all doom and gloom.

It's Ferguson all over again as the Mayor of Baltimore, who's an idiot, and the Governor stood by as the thugs and criminals went wild. Both knew the situation was going to get out of hand yet they sat on their hands and didn't show any force to stop it before it developed into a full blown riot. The National Guard should have been deployed before the situation deteriorated into chaos.…

I didn't sit on every budget meeting because that's not my job, nor do I have the time too. That's what my tax dollars go to, representation. My alderman voted against this budget, as did five others. So my guess is that others who have sat through everything also feel the way I do.

Well, it seems you have all the answers on how the city should manage it's money. I'm glad to know you sat in on every meeting, including executive sessions, and know where every dollar on every line-item of the budget it going. With all of your vast knowledge and presence at these meetings, though, I'm surprised you didn't offer up a better alternative, since it seems you know…

We need to respect our police, they are the only thing that stands between us and the chaos like they have in Baltimore.

OLC Board approves bid for new roof over Kent Hall

2 years, 5 months ago by Denise Donley

Construction on Kent Hall will hopefully begin by the end of the year

Goerlich Roofing was awarded the bid to construct Kent Hall’s new roof for the Oakley Lindsey Center.

At Wednesday’s meeting, the Oakley Lindsey Center board announced the $57,000 bid was awarded to Goerlich Roofing. 

OLC will receive a 20 year warranty for the Kent Hall roofing replacement and work will hopefully begin before the end of the year, weather permitting.

“We’ve been able to secure a good bid and looking forward to getting the roof replaced up there,” said Executive Director Rob Ebbing. “We’re keeping it up to shape so we’re not falling apart.”

The Gems Baseball team budget has been an item of scrutiny in the past months, and Wednesday’s meeting showed no different.

Budget line items were moved around but the overall budget remained the same.

There was a decrease in travel expenses for the team this past season, so money was moved from the travel expenses to cover other items instead.

Doing this is against OLC Board policy, and Ebbing was asked by the board to fix this.

“This coming year we’re really going to have to sit down and crunch the numbers,” said Ebbing. “We love keeping baseball alive in Quincy and having the Gems here for the community, but we can’t continue to keep taking losses.”

In other business, the OLC and KHQA will co-host the Outdoor Show, taking place in January 2013. This event will host local businesses showcasing campers, ATV’s, motorcycles, boats and much more.

The OLC will be sharing revenues and sales of vendors with KHQA. In exchange, KHQA will take care of advertising for OLC and the event.

Also, the storage building remains on holds as the application for the DCEO grant is still waiting approval.

The board will meet again December 19 at 12:00 p.m.
