7 months, 4 weeks ago by Denise Donley
The Quincy City Council approved Berrian School to close an alley that will safely allow students to play outside at Monday night’s City Council meeting.
The east end of the alley located between Jackson and Van Buren, 8th to 9th St. will be closed Monday through Friday from 11:10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. during the school year to allow students to safely access a playground area.
Proper barricades, signage and traffic control will be provided by Berrian School.
In other business, the normal bidding requirements were approved to be waived and two vehicle detection camera systems to be purchased from the State of Illinois Joint Purchasing program for the intersections of 36th & Broadway and 24th and Koch’s Lane. The project will cost $47,000 using Motor Fuel Tax Funds, of which $23,500 will be reimbursed back to the City. These cameras take the place of loops put in the pavement. The cameras will detect when a vehicle comes to the intersection and will change the light to better be able to regulate traffic. Passed 14-0.
The council approved the Williams Shooter Supply quote of $8,242.50 for 21 cases of rifle ammunition.
This resolution was adopted 14-0.
Also adopted was the GASB 54 Standards and Applications, which is a new standard of government fund balance reporting and governmental fund type definitions. Comptroller Ann Scott explained this is the accounting standard to show how the City reports the balance at year end. It is required to adopt to meet the standards of the auditors. Passed 14-0.
The resolution authorizing the execution and amendment of the Downstate Operating Assistance Grant Agreement was also adopted 14-0.
The City Council will meet again Monday, September 24th at 7:30 p.m.
