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.

Plan Commission approves all requests at Tuesday's meeting

2 years, 3 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.
