I believe if you check, you will find that Property Developers are required by City Code to put in sidewalks at their expense unless they get a waiver from that part of the code. Once the sidewalks are in, they become the city's responsibility to maintain.

Does anyone else remember that much (most?) of the land the Kroc Center now occupies was formerly Salvation Army property and thus exempt from taxation all along? That would seem to mitigate some of the tax issues some on here are so jacked up about. If I am in error, I welcome correction and/or dissenting opinions.

Well, you're too sharp for me. I was just trying to relieve that longing. I know how much that can hurt.

Well that guy asked for a gift of money to build his building. So yeah, many objected. The city proposed making it a loan and he backed out. To the best of my knowledge the Kroc center never asked for a thing. It's the city that put proposed putting in the sidewalks since they own that part of the property...just like they own the sidewalks in all the city right of way. Now...since sidewalks…

Quincy City Council ends lease with Quincy University

2 years, 6 months ago by Denise Donley

The lease of Building D on QU's North campus has been dissolved

The City of Quincy ended a lease with Quincy University at Tuesday night's City Council meeting.

The lease of Building D on Quincy University's North Campus with the city of Quincy was ended with a 10-0 vote.

The property at 1901 N. 18th was transfered back to QU after the Quincy Fire Department no longer needed the land for training.

2nd Ward Alderman Steve Duesterhaus objected to this transfer and said the city purchased this property several years ago and now is just giving it back.

“The University is having a dispute with the second board and they are pretending our relationship is a one way street. I definitely wanted to see this go to three readings,” said Duesterhaus.

The council waived section 2207 and passed this ordinance with an 8-2 vote.

In other business, Alderman Dave Bauer, Alderman Jim Musolino, Dr.Drew Kaiser, Sgt. Kathy Schisler, Sally Westerhoff, Fred Nothold and Jenna Steinkamp were appointed to the Animal Control Commission by Mayor John Spring. Michael Price was appointed to the Quincy Tree Commission.

An ordinance granting one ground sign in addition to an existing pole sign and increase the face area of proposed ground sign at 4134 Broadway, the new Farmers Bank of Liberty location, was adopted with a 9-1 vote.

In new business, 3rd ward Alderman Kyle Moore asked Director of Planning and Development Chuck Bevelheimer if the plan commission needs to meet on the same night as the Adams County Board.

“The schedule has been this way. We’ve always been able to have someone represent the county board even though they’ve been on the same night,” said Bevelheimer. “If the council felt this was of high priority, this is something that can be done.”

The City Council’s next meeting will take place Monday, November 19th at 7:30.
