Bob is a very nice guy and served well before but I think it is time for some new blood. I think this "appointment" is old school politics as usual. Must have been some give and take associated with it.
GoQuincy - Hearing Aid Volume Control: There’s an app for that - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
There are a lot of other hearing aids on the market other than the "extreme" and very expensive type mentioned in the above article. Those others are even offered by QMG such as the ones I have for each ear. Hearing aids are like any other digital, electronic device and are always being updated as technology advances. They like anything else and range in price.
WarCry - Lovelace back in court Monday - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
In 2010, Philip Diaz was held on a murder charge with a $1,000,000 bond. This one is more, obviously, but it doesn't really matter when you're talking about that big of a number. But for argument's sake, you have to consider the nature of the crime. Diaz shot and killed someone in a moment of anger and passion, a person he probably didn't know all that well. Mr. Lovelace is accused…

Convoy> It's too bad some of you union boys just don't have any integrity when it comes to jobs. Take the best paying whether you're qualified or not. Kind of like cheating, isn't it? Wait, it is cheating! I guess cheaters think everyone else is a cheater. You should also learn the difference between jealousy and contempt.

Eric Orne - Are you ready? Opportunity is knocking. Not too many, if any, have won state championships in both girls and boys. You can do it. Tom Lepper might be another candidate but his brother-in-law is principal.

Only two items on agenda at Plan Commission meeting

1 year, 9 months ago by Paige Traeder

At Wednesday night's Plan Commission meeting, only 2 items were on the agenda and both were approved

At Wednesday night's Plan Commission meeting, only 2 items were on the agenda and both were approved.

First on the agenda, Anthony W. Williams requested a Special Permit to use property located at 439 North 3rd Street for vehicle and sales service. In each of the Downtown Districts, a special use permit is required to operate a "vehicle sales or service facility."

A used car lot and service garage has operated under a special use permit since 2005. There are two buildings on the property and Williams plans to demolish one and build a 2,100 sq. ft. building with two wash bays and offices in its place. Motion did carry and the request was approved.

Also, Robert H. Berger, of Berger Properties, LLC, requested a zoning change from M1 (Light Industrial) to D5 (Downtown Industrial) for property located at 220 Oak St. The property is in two zoning districts because it is an el-shaped, double-frontage parcel between Oak and Pine Streets.

Rezoning of the M1 portion of the property to the D5 classification was being sought to allow more flexibility in positioning buildings. The Commission approved the request.

In other business, amendments to the Land Use Plan will be talked about at next month's meeting. Some amendments discussed included sizes of political signs and the definition for backlit signs.

All matters approved by the Plan Commission go to City Council on Monday.
