They're estimating up to 97,000 by September. With that # that is $38,000 per child. How's this? Offer their parents $10,000 to come pick them up. We can save $2.7B and have them out of the country ASAP. Of course we DNA them so they can't get the $$ twice to the same family subject to a fraud charge. Then you have to lock down the border too.

Not after Katrina specifically, no... just whenever my time and finances have permitted, since the late 1980's. (Sorry, I honestly was not trying to compare anyplace to a region that is plagued by war or famine; my point was simply that we tend to see way too little value in certain parts of our own country.) You're absolutely correct that there is a problem with throwing money at problems…

Plan Commission approves all requests at Tuesday's meeting

1 year, 6 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.
