Aldermen are not voting on this until September 8. And next week's meeting is on Tuesday because of Labor Day. BG

If you want get an idea of what you might pay with my proposal get our your winter water bill and look at the usage in CCF. Multiply that number by $0.16 and that's the ballpark for what you would pay. Many ways to compute this...but this will probably work out for you to be about the same as your paying now with stickers. Average usage for accounts in Quincy is about 16.5 CCF or $9.99 per quarter.

If we want to do something about this how about change.org? Question is...who do we bombard? The Mayor? Or set up a petition for each pair of aldermen? Or put them all on the notification list? Of course we're probably too late too as this will be on Monday's agenda to spend the money. Three days probably isn't enough time.

There's at least one alderman who's going back out and actively asking people in their ward for their opinion on the issue not. It's NOT something that was previously done, so apparently at least one of the 14 has sat up and noticed "Hey, maybe we didn't get it right last time?"

Nancy Grace likes to say a lot of stuff. Occasionally, she even accidentally stumbles onto something that's true. This isn't one of those times, in my opinion.

VIDEO: Firefighters respond to 4-alarm fire at O'Shea's Bar & Grill

Bar and grill at 4th and Ceder engulfed by fire

Quincy Firefighters battled a four-alarm fire Friday night at O’Shea’s Bar & Grill on 339 Cedar.

Firefighters responded to reports of fire in the ceiling at 9:41 p.m.

When crews arrived, everyone had already been evacuated safely from the building.

Fire Chief Joe Henning said as crews arrived, firefighters spread throughout the building and found fire in the ceiling of the vacant upstairs apartment.

“Once the fire reached the roof, the fire was upgraded to a fourth alarm so firefighters that were on their 2nd air tank could be replaced and refreshed,” said Henning.

At this time, Henning said there’s no report as to what may have caused the blaze, but since the building was occupied, it’s anybody’s guess what could have been going on.

Stan Whelan has co-owned O'Shea's since January 27, 2011 and said the fire is "just devastating."

"We completely renovated the downstairs and in a couple of weeks we were going to start re-doing the apartment upstairs, said Whelan. "I'd always wanted to own a bar and restaurant."

Wheland added, "We definitely plan on re-opening. We've got a very good business. I hate to say it this way, but O'Shea's is the talk of the town."

Henning said fire damage is mostly upstairs in the apartment, but there is damage to the first floor ceiling as well, mainly smoke and water damage.

No nearby buildings were affected.

Crews are still on the scene checking for hot spots in the building.
