I understand that teacher's do not have opulent salaries but the statement about throwing good money after bad is biased. From what I have heard, the schools are structurally sound. Also, the state should not have tell us what repairs have to be made as they should have been completed as necessary. Doesn't the school district have paid staff to understand the state laws for maintenance…

Rauner doesn't have to tell voters in Cook County to vote. they'll be voting early and often anyway, heck even dead ones vote in Cook county and republicans vote for democrats when using faulty voting machines.

Stolen was a purse, wallet, credit card, iPad, 18-inch TV, GPS, cash, diamond earrings with matching necklace, and sunglasses. Doesn't everyone keep those items on an unlocked car behind your house?

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.
