There has been a lot of info about the school board election in the media. But, Are the same people that were on the Quincy Park Board running? Or, maybe that election isn't held at the same time the School Board Election? Sorry to see Jeff M. go, although I didn't agree with him all the time.

What property of the city does Comsast use? The biggest chunk of property leased to them is probably Amerens power poles, unless they have buildings residing on city property that I am not aware of. the fee paid to the phone company is paid by whoever is leasing the line. If Adams provides DSL to a customer in quincy and they do not have any plant in the area but AT&T does Adams can rent the line…

I think Ameren pays also. Maybe we should put up toll booth to enter city so we can tax the people from out of town for using our services. I guess we get them at the cash register but we pay that also

Quincy Regional Airport needs 986 boardings to hit 10,000

Quincy Regional Airport needs 986 boardings to hit 10,000

2 years ago by Bob Gough

City would qualify for $1 million in additional federal funds

If the rest of December’s weather remains pleasant, Cape Air might be able to hit the 10,000 enplanement mark this year.

With Cape Air's reduced ticket pricing of $39.00 on selected flights since the first of October as well as the revised Flight Schedule since mid-October, boardings continue to remain strong, hitting 979 passengers in November.

That enplanement count is the second highest monthly total for Cape Air since they began to provide service to the Quincy Regional Airport three years ago and is surpassed only by the 997 boardings that occurred this past October. 

 Of these 979 total passengers, 966 of them were classified as "revenue passengers" as per FAA Regulations and can be counted toward the goal of 10,000 revenue passengers for the Quincy Regional Airport for 2012. 

 With the total revenue passengers for 2012 standing at 9014 through November, Quincy Regional Airport needs 986 more revenue passengers in December to hit 10,000.

Quincy Regional Airport Interim Manager Jeff Steinkamp said those boardings can come “from either the scheduled air carrier, Cape Air, or any certified Charter Flight Service during the month of December to qualify the City for $1 million of Federal Grant money that can be used for Capital Infrastructure and Safety Improvement Projects at the Quincy Regional Airport.”

Quincy Mayor John Spring made a plea for citizen to use the airport.

“With the enplanement numbers so close to the 10,000 mark, I would encourage all area residents and businesses to consider using Cape Air during the month of December to help reach our goal and to qualify for the additional funding to improve our local airport.”
