I know what they're trying to do her, but they need to tighten up the language if they're serious. this could - COULD - lead to kids getting misdemeanors for their toy ray-guns. Things like Airsoft DO look very real - real enough to use as movie props, in fact. Paintball guns are iffy (most guns don't have a Coke-bottle-looking magazine or a compressed air tank on them).

Hadn't you heard? Global Warming -> Climate Change -> Climate Disruption -> Weather They've started figuring out that weather changes so now no matter what happens they're right. I get a kick out of reading NASA's explanation of global warming just recently updated due to a correction they had to make to U.S. data

Quincy City Council rejects proposed Ameren Transmission line

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.
