Exactly right. Nothing like adding a bit of drama to bolster your "argument." How can anyone complain? For starters, the bloated budgets of the police and fire departments, and the funding of the generous pensions for those employees, is the primary source of the budget woes that the City is facing. Nothing has really been done to address those issues, save for terminating a few "non-essential"…

That's a bit dramatic, don't you think? What are you suggesting? That if the firefighters didn't get a raise, they were going to walk off the job? Or maybe fight fires at half speed? Because that's the only way that public safety would be jeopardized. With regard to the Consumer Price Index, I agree with polkadot. There are a lot of people out there whose salary hasn't…

And they had said they were going to buy 2 automated trucks...but the RFP says "an automated garbage truck" which implies one truck. Is that right? http://www.ci.quincy.il.us/bids/garbage-truck

Can't afford public safety? That's one of very few things a city its suppose to afford! And the CPI comment on this thread its a very good point and it appears these men and women have taken less than that. How can anyone complain?

Keokuk Lions Club hosts annual chili supper

1 year, 2 months ago by Denise Donley

Tickets, as always, are $5

This is the season for chili and, once again, the Keokuk Lions Club has begun preparations for their Annual Grand Lunch Chili Supper according to project chairman, Howie Sutlive. 

“This is a fund-raising project for the sight-saving projects our Lions Club undertakes every year,” Sutlive explained. “We work as a team to cook and serve chili using the actual recipe from the former Grand Lunch Diner here in Keokuk.  We even give you the option of beans or no beans.”

This year’s event will be held on February 1 beginning at 11 a.m. and running until 6:30 p.m.  Sutlive said, “Two years ago we began holding the event at the First Christian Church. The facilities there make it much easier to prepare and serve, so we are there again this year”.

Steve Derr, Event Ticket Chair, reminded, “We will prepare large orders for pick up.  It is not unusual for businesses and industries in the area to order large quantities of meals to serve to employees at the lunch hour.  If you would like to put in a group order, please do it in advance so our volunteers can have enough time to prepare and package your order.”

“ Tickets can be purchased from any Lions member”, Derr said, “ and you can phone in an order by calling 319-524-6334”.

Cost of tickets remains $5 as it has been in the past.
