we have adequate scrubbers for coal, the problem is the anthropogenic global warming nuts insist we remove life giving, plant fertilizer CO2 from the emissions. And the US is like the Saudi Arabia of coal, and little known fact ... Illinois is very coal rich. Meredosia was going to do some new experimental CO2 sequester thing, which is insane. We need MORE Carbon Dioxide. But of course they…

That's ok. Medicaid will pay for patches, wellbutrin, Chantix, whatever the patient wants. Better yet, Medicaid will pay over and over and over again for the same recipient. Best of all, some of these Medicaid recipients will pick up the patches, free of course, then go to Customer Service and want a refund saying "I got the wrong strength. I don't have my receipt." How long do tax payers…

Since Rauner is trying to bring Illinois out of the 'red' - why doesn't someone suggest the elimination of the FOID card? How many of those arrested were in possession of a gun? How many of these same criminals carried a FOID card or a CC card or had the gun registered…

Quincy City Council rejects proposed Ameren Transmission line

2 years, 3 months ago by Denise Donley

Proposed line could impact businesses in the south levy district

The Quincy City Council rejected a resolution to allow Ameren Transmission to install a primary route line in the South Quincy Industrial area at Monday night’s meeting.

The proposed route line would cut through the south levy district industrial park and could impact the future development of Kohl Wholesale and other potential businesses.

Richard M. Ehrhart with Kohl Wholesale opposed the Ameren route location.

“The land is intended to be used for additional expansion and 1/3 of the parcel would be unusable if the line would be installed,” said Ehrhart. “This could hurt business plans and other development land in the area.”

The Council supports an alternative route proposed by the Great River Economic Development Foundation.

“I hope that the Illinois commerce Commission will take our resolution into consideration. The resolution basically takes the transmission line considerably south of where it is proposed now,” said Quincy Mayor John Spring. “Currently, it’s being proposed right about on the city limits in the industrial park. The resolution would take it at least another half of mile south which then shouldn’t create any kind of impact for us with future or existing businesses.”

In other business, Council approved a plan to change the City’s Revolving Loan fund to allow the city to fund grants for economic development projects. Quincy Director of Planning Chuck Bevelheimer said the two funds each have more than $1 million.

Council also passed an ordinance amending the 2012-2013 fiscal year budget, which increases capital projects by $45,751.

Low bids for tire repairs on city vehicles were awarded to Ron’s Tire and Summy Tire for two year term beginning 1/1/2013 and ending 12/31/2014.

The $5,260 quote from Midland Paper Packaging & Supplies for 500,000 trash stickers was also adopted.

The City of Quincy has been authorized to submit an application for a Public Transportation Capital Assistance Grant under the Illinois Department of Transportation’s general authority.

City Council will meet again Monday, January 14 at 7:30 p.m.
