Didn't Hannibal just put in a new school or two? I can't find the story on planned vs. spent, but I don't hear a lot of hollering about cost overruns, etc. I just remember the story with the open house to show off their new, state-of-art facility.

I still think that there is no way they can guarantee that this project is only going to be $89M. Take a look to the North to another huge government sponsored building at Ft. Madison Prison. Years late and 10's of millions in cost over run. There is simply no way that they can promise this won't cost a penny more than $89M and what happens when it does (and it will by a minimum of 15%)?…

The bonds that they're currently talking about retiring were the previous set of bonds to pay for Life Safety repairs. I'm not sure why you don't know this stuff. I know it from reading the QJ articles over the last year or so, so it's not like I have secret insider-info, it sounds like you are - for whatever reason - just willfully ignoring the information that's out there.…

I honestly can't explain it. I'm not on the park board, so you could try asking them. But I'm going to bet the answer sounds something like this: "We can spend a ton of money to repair current problems without gaining any actual improvement to the facility, just patching up the problem spots. Or we can spend a roughly equivalent amount and get a newer facility which will have regular…

I know of what you speak-----the same thing happened to my son in Junior High 35 years ago. Apparently performance wasn't a measurement then, either.

Quincy Regional Airport needs 986 boardings to hit 10,000

Quincy Regional Airport needs 986 boardings to hit 10,000

1 year, 10 months 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.”
