I'm sorry, I just coventry haven't seen it, and I'm talking about the private sector. Heck fast food joints have given raises, min wage has increased, all my friend at blessing hospital and the medical group have given raises. I'm sorry, I just don't know what circle of people you're running with. And they've all without exception received more than 1%. The wage correction…
pjohnf - Quinn: New controls after Medicaid paid for dead - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Why is it with government bureaucrats that they always say they're going to close the barn door after the horse has left the barn? Millions in fraudulent payouts and now they find out. Only goes to prove once again that government is not the solution but government is truly the problem.
pjohnf - Rauner details some immigration views - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Anti-illegal immigration is not anti-legal immigration and Quinn knows it. It's disappointing that Rauner would side with the illegal immigration/amnesty crowd. It's insane and wrong to reward illegal behavior, illegal immigration, with any pathway to citizenship. Big business wants cheap labor and democrats want a new dependent class of voters and that's why both support immigration…

Tell that to people (Private Sector, of course) who have taken pay CUTS, shortened hours or loss of benefits just to remain employed. Somehow, I feel your comments come more from attitude and opinion than knowledge and experience.

Only two items on agenda at Plan Commission meeting

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.
