Agreed 100%, DukeOfQuincy!!! I know that I'm likely in the minority on this matter when I say this (because Mike Flynn is an inexplicably-popular alternative to Darin LaHood or any of the other hopefuls)... but I believe that there should absolutely be some sort of a residency requirement for political candidates. (It really wouldn't be THAT much of an imposition to merely require that…
qfingers - Is \'thug\' the new N-word? Debate rages over language - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Of all the things to worry about from any side of this situation semantics seems like a "How can I add fuel to the fire" statement instead of being anything constructive at all. The tortured response from Baltimore's mayor was really ridiculous...apologized for calling them thugs and failed to offer any other term other than tortuous multi-word description. From dictionary.com noun 1. a cruel…

jungle65 - Quincy Fire Station #6 set to shut down - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
How about the Mayor taking away the aldermen insurance, no one should be getting insurance for the hours they put in or how about cutting the number of aldermen in half? This would allow the fire station to remain open which is way more important than the aldermen and may allow for both QFD and QPD to add some bodies!

Quincy sees sales tax dip

3 years, 2 months ago by Bob Gough, QuincyJournal

Sales tax revenues decline in November

After keeping pace for most of 2011, the City of Quincy saw a sharp sales tax revenue decline in November.

Sales tax revenue was $758,483 in November, which was down from $792,587 in November 2010.

Home Rule Sales Tax Revenue saw an even bigger decline, dropping from $841,266 in November 2010 to $805,242 last November.

City officials are tracking revenues closely as they are in the process of preparing the 2012-2013 budget which will be voted on in April.

In other action, Aldermen approved the low proposal from Peters Heating and Air Conditioning of $48,557 for the replacement of the heating and air conditioning system at Central Fire Station.  The City is using a “green energy” federal grant to pay for the system, which is replacing the building's original heating system that was installed in 1924.

The Council also approved the low quote of Asphalt Stone Company of Jacksonville of $4,500 for expansion joint milling on runways at Quincy Regional Airport.
