I root for the Cleve Browns even though they have zero chance of winning the super bowl. Chance of winning doesn't come into play on this obsession - doesn't come into play when I vote either. I vote for what I want - I do not "settle"..

The goal this year is not to win its to get 5% of the vote so ballot access is not an issue in four years. Right up until about a month and a half ago the Libertarians were doing little if any campaigning. They were fighting court battles the GOP brought against them. And it was the same with the Green and Constitution partys to get on the ballot. Its hard to fund raise when you can't campaign…

Minimum wage it for minimum employees. A person should be able to work for any wage they want too without government interference.

What we need is a better voting system...like the Borda method. Then the 3rd party candidate most assuredly would have a chance....but for just that reason you'll never see it....the controlling parties not wanting a 3rd party to have any chance. Plus it's a bit difficult to count unless you are computerized. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Borda_count

Plan Commission approves all requests at Tuesday's meeting

1 year, 9 months ago by Paige Traeder

The Commission approved rezoning of property to develop apartment buildings and consolidation of a lot to develop a senior care center

The City of Quincy's Plan Commission met Tuesday night approving all items on the agenda.

The first item on the agenda was a request from Jeff Stone, of Collision Solutions, for a permit to allow a new paint booth to be installed on the 300 North Front Street property. The booth would be housed in a new 37-ft. by 49-ft. addition to the existing maintenance shop situated at the south end of the property. The motion did carry but with an amendment. Stone was given a 12-month timeframe by the Commission to complete previous work on some fencing around the property and the new paint booth.

Scott Koontz requested rezoning of 0.97 acres located at 4329 State Street from Single-Family Residential to Multi-Family Residential. Rezoning was requested in order to develop one-story apartment buildings on the property similar to those on the adjoining property to the north and east. The Commission approved the request.

In other business, a motion was approved for Americare, Inc., who requested consolidation of a lot located at 213 North 48th Street with portions of two properties to the south to form a 2.95-acre lot. A senior care center with two buildings is being proposed for development on the site. North 48th Street is designated as a major street, so installation of a five-foot-wide sidewalk will be required.

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