The only ridiculous drivel I've read here is you trying to justify this action by saying that both Republican and Democratic Presidents have acted unlawfully in the past. Please cite an example of a previous executive order that decreed ignoring laws on the books. Also do you really think Strawman can "incite discontent and perhaps violence"? After reading this opinion the thought of going home…

The ground shuttle would only kick in when needed at end of year and would not cost much for a few weeks. Maybe there are rules but wouldn't city employees with business in StL be counted as enplanements? I also think this is a wasteful gov subsidy but at same time the benefit is there and to let it slip away for want of 200 enplanments would almost be derelict in duty of city fathers. What if…

I understood what he was saying, Migraine... respectfully I am just saying that a "solution" like that probably wouldn't work, for several reasons. First, there's almost certainly a rule against it; EAS serves a purpose, but it has been widely criticized as being wasteful spending for years now (therefore, I doubt that the practice of letting the city game the system by buying up the excess…

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.
