Givemeliberty - Quincy Fire Station #6 set to shut down - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
I have thought the same thing specifically for the area affected by station 6. Another option would be privatization I think it would be a tougher sell as most Americans live in their little "only gov can do that" bubble, especially in this town where most wont let anyone but gov workers pick up their trash. But the idea of private fire protection and even police is nothing new and and should at…

Let's just move to an all volunteer FD, you're paying for it. You get what you pay for so you decide and have the city council accede to your wishes.

Nice, you attack me personally to get your opinion across. Bodies fight fires not buildings. FF's spend large portions of their shifts away from their stations, doing inspections, hydrant testing, equipment testing and maintenance, public education, training and other duties. Not all fires are down the block from fire stations. In an ideal world Quincy would have more fire stations, more FF's…

Response time although important, it's not the most important factor for FF safety or public safety. If the FD shows up with inadequate personnel they can't put out the fire or perform victim rescue without putting both victim and FF lives in jeopardy.

Not everyone a fan of CKC highway designation

Not everyone a fan of CKC highway designation

2 years, 10 months ago by Bob Gough

Sign project cost $450,000 and there was already a Missouri 110 south of St. Louis when the new Missouri 110 was created

From newspressnow.com:

But not everyone is sold on the “CKC” signs having any great impact for the region.

“It’s unnecessary,” said Marci Bennett, executive director of the St. Joseph Convention & Visitors Bureau. “We’re pushing the Highway 36, the Way of American Genius.”

That designation refers to a pre-existing program, sponsored by the Missouri Highway 36 Heritage Alliance, to foster wide recognition of the area’s character and history for tourism and economic development.

Mrs. Bennett said the expressway is actually a detriment to travelers by piggybacking the Illinois 110 moniker into Missouri. Another Missouri 110 exists in Jefferson County, but to date there has been no push to alter that highway’s route. Officials also said there are no legal or policy prohibitions against the overlapping designations.

“People are confused,” Mrs. Bennett said. “It doesn’t come to St. Joseph. It’s very confusing. It doesn’t do anything for us. We didn’t oppose it, but we didn’t endorse it.”
