I think Carl is on his last legs and will be gone - none too soon. As for Dick M - finding out why he got ousted falls in the category of looking a gift weasel in the mouth. I will take this opportunity to repeat my creed - there is no such thing as a wasted vote if you vote for what you believe in.

So, those of using private haulers, who have been subsidizing garbage pick up for years for those who chose to use stickers, now get to pay even more? This isn't going to end well for the Kyle administration.

Been saying this for a couple years now, and I really heard about it last election cycle because I voted for Grimm instead of one of our two Chicago choices. Keep the faith, we're never gonna get a good candidate untill we start to peel off the "I voted for the lesser of two evils" cowards, and get them on our side. I always wondered why Dick Morris lost his job at FOX (as he should have)…

I have been thinking the same thing, is there a $1000 tax in the works for UPS, FedEx and DHL? Maybe the Federal Government should take a page out of this administrations play book and levy a tax on their competitors trucks. and I am with you on the list of customers, that seems to be serious overreach on the part of any government. The s**t storm of the city rejecting privatization just keeps…

Subdivision and church in the works on South 36th

The Quincy Plan Commission in brief session Tuesday night supported several requests.

The Commission voted for a zoning change and subdivision approval for an area west of South 36th Street and north of the Chapel Valley subdivision. Bishop E.L. Warren, with The Cathedral of Worship, asked for a zoning change to single-family residential from rural for a 12.55 acre, L-shaped parcel. The remaining acreage of the parcel doesn't need a zoning change. They've plans to build a worship center in a later phase of development.

Warren has been planning for the past two years for this 27-lot subdivision, to be known as Kingdom Estates.

According to paperwork prepared by the City's Planning and Development staff, the lots will be arranged along a street extending west from South 36th Street, then curving to the south and ending in a cul-de-sac.

Warren, who had numerous chairs in Council chambers filled in support of him, did not address the Commission himself. Tony Crane with Architechnics told the members that Warren held a neighborhood meeting in September where he talked with area residents about the plan. It was attended by about 60 people, Crane said. No one spoke against his requests. The Commission's recommendations will go before the City Council Monday night for final action.

Former Mayor Chuck Scholz spoke on the record in support of Warren.

He said Warren and his Church have done positive things for the community and his ministry was important.

"I have full confidence this will be a high-quality development and I urge the Commission to grant the petitioner's requests," he said.

Commissioners also gave their support to a request from Blessing Hospital. Officials want to build a 160-stall parking lot that would be located at the northwest corner of North 11th and College Ave. and the southwest corner of North 11th and Elm.

They also approved a special permit to Jerry and Julie Smith, who will be moving their Advantage termite and pest control business from the 900 block of Maine to 634 South 11th St.
