DRUM57IX - Committee sends new garbage and recycle trucks plan to Quincy City Council - Quincy, IL News - Quinc
At the very least, deal with the parasite that is recycling. Its a complete money pit, costing the city more money to dump recycle than it is to just take that waste and put it in a landfill...not to mention, it puts more trucks in service, costing more to maintain, and more guys to use those trucks...AND IT DOESN'T COLLECT ANY REVENUE FOR THE CITY! Either charge people to recycle, or get rid…

Before going with the new trucks version, offer the private company a six year (instead of ten) deal, at a 15% discount from their current price. If the council votes that they would approve that, the company might jump at it. (no idea if they are legit, or union, or what) What does Mrs. Hackamack suggest? Does the "old guard" have a better idea, that isn't just about protecting city workers?…

"former Adams County Assistant State's Attorney and a former member of the Quincy School Board" WOW ... so they draw the line at murder? The protected elite class can't really get away with anything and everything? Of course there is still a long ways to go, due process, especially for the connected, and all that. Is he closely related to any prominent judges, or is murder too…

WARNING!! If this case gets assigned to Easy Ed Parkinson.... the fix is in. Just like it's been in since 2006. Remember what happened with those other cases involving Parkinson and public officials or attorneys (Cashman) BTW, Mr. Lovelace is on wife #3 (that we know about)

Illinois House approves $1.1 billion road plan

2 months, 4 weeks ago From suntimes.com

From From suntimes.com:

he Illinois House Thursday overwhelmingly passed a $1.1 billion road-and-bridge package stripped up of what the GOP characterized as pork as the spring legislative session neared a hectic end with several key issues still unresolved.

With two full days left until a scheduled Saturday legislative adjournment, Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle’s bid for county pension reform appears to have hit a snag in the Statehouse as has Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s push to increase city phone tax.

And legislation ratifying the U.S. Equal Rights Amendment and authorizing a takeover of the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum spun in place Thursday, leaving their prospects uncertain.

But a flurry of bills passed the House and Senate Thursday with perhaps the biggest being a $1.1 billion construction package to help smooth pothole-pocked roads across the state, damaged from last winter’s relentless snow and cold.

That plan passed the House by a 97-11 vote, with four members voting “present,” in a push sought by labor unions. That measure now heads to the Senate, which also has to vote on a budget Friday or Saturday. Separate legislation to fund the program is up for a House vote Friday.
