Never heard of such a thing. Cities and counties along with townships submit their request, then CMS uses that total for their RFP. If a supplier cannot meet that total then I would guess some could be left off the RFP total, but have never heard of that. The other comment states " bids range from $70 to $140 per ton" so why is Quincy paying $95 per ton? Still I have never heard of CMS cutting off…

The CMS bid wasn't all or nothing RFP. Vendors could choose to bid on any of the several requests. The important sentence above is: "The Illinois Department of Central Management Services this month INFORMED MANY city and county officials in charge buying road salt that no vendors responded to their requests for bids." Many doesn't mean the same thing as ALL. Quincy happened to be among…

Quincy Presbyterian Church seeks move to South 36th Street

2 years, 5 months ago by Jamie Busen, QuincyJournal and WTAD News

City Planning staff recommends move

At Tuesday night's Quincy Plan Commission meeting, officials will consider a request from Quincy Presbyterian Church that would allow the ministry to move from 2525 Broadway.

Officials from the Church want to lease space at 255 South 36th Street. The request is for a special permit to use a vacant part of the building for religious uses. 

The property is in the C2 commercial district and is currently home to several businesses including Fastenal and Doors-N-Moore. According to staff comments, "religious uses are reviewed ... to assure that adequate off-street parking will be available and that the required distance from conflicting uses (i.e., liquor sales) will be maintained." 

Demand for parking would be heaviest on Sundays, and that's when the parking needs for other uses in the building would be the lowest. The recommendation by the planning and development department is for approval.

@DAdamWHIG @sam_douglas22 I bet Garcia never throws another major league pitch for the Cardinals. They just need to be careful with Wacha.
