pjohnf - New jail or no new jail? - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
CC1 had valid points but I feel that the jail is needed and maybe the price tag can be reduced. A quarter of cent isn't much until you add it up but the need for a new jail outweighs the cost. Yes many taxes once instituted never seem to go away but we will have chance to get rid of politicians who renege on their promise to stop the tax once the jail is paid for. It's different than state…

I'm praying for the family and the detectives on this case. Our town has been a safe place to raise our children without a big police presence, so far. All parents should take the time to have a talk with their children about this. This cannot become a normal in our town!

Congratulations, you are the first person to bring race into this. Nice job.

Quincy sees sales tax dip

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.
