The Quincy City Council approved spending $152,980 on a new service pump for the city’s water treatment plant.
At Monday night’s brief meeting, Aldermen approved of the low bid of Prairie State Plumbing & Heating to replace the pump.
The Council also approved spending $62,903 to replace a pipe television inspection system for the Sewer Collection Division of Centralized Services. The low bid was submitted by Coe Equipment, the designated supplier representative of the Aires Inspection System.
Aldermen expedited the approval of a special use permit at 907 S. 12th for a car lot by Kirk Hess.
Aldermen heard the second reading of the ordinance to set salaries for the City officials who will be elected next April.
The salaries for mayor, city clerk and city treasurer would remain frozen at their current levels next year and then increase by 1.5 percent for the next three years in 2014, 2015 and 2016.
The mayor’s salary is $95,732 and the clerk and treasurer are each paid $61,984. The treasurer and clerk would receive $1,500 increases if they maintain the state certifications for their respective positions.
The ordinance will be voted on next week.
