No differently than anybody else's....really???? If he didn't orchestrate it than it's the police chief or a senior police officer who overreacted. This is, of course, assuming the 7 officers response team is true. And if the warrant was about twitter seems to me the marijuana charge will have to be dropped as it's "fruit ot he poisonous tree" isn't it?

qfingers - City/Firefighters labor contract must be voted on again - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Super majority only required if the mayor "vetoes" an item (Code 2.106). A pretty rare occurrence (has it ever happened here?) You can always re-vote a failed item if you want to. Not done very often though. In this case the resolution never passed or failed since no majority of elected members occurred either way. Not passing is not the same as disapproval.

Steigelman set to retire as JWCC vice president

1 year, 11 months ago by Bob Gough

 

John Wood Community College’s vice president of finance said farewell to the Board of Trustees Wednesday night.

Alan Steigelman will retire June 30 following 15 years of service to the College. The search for his replacement is underway and a new VP of finance should be in place in July.

During his report, Steigelman expressed appreciation for the JWCC staff, faculty and board. He has been responsible for JWCC’s business, information technology, physical plant, campus safety and security, bookstore and cafeteria operations. 

During his tenure, Steigelman coordinated the facilities development and funding for JWCC’s Quincy campus at 48th and Harrison and Workforce Development Center at 4220 Kochs Lane. 

Trustees voted to phase out the landscape and turf management program based on low enrollment. Accommodations will be made to ensure that currently enrolled students who have specified that they are seeking a degree or certificate will be able to complete their program.

Preparations for the 2013 budget are still underway and a tentative budget is slated to be presented to the Board in June.  The Board is scheduled to vote on the budget in July.

Trustees also formally acknowledged JWCC Student Government Association officers for 2012-2013.  They are as follows: Bryce Moore of Quincy, president; Morgan Roberts of Quincy, vice president; Lindsay Hall of Liberty, secretary; and Kelsey Busen of Mt. Sterling, treasurer. 

Board members recognized Meredith Brinkman of Fowler for her service as the 2011-2012 Student Trustee. Brinkman and Bradley Craigmyle of Quincy were recognized for being among a select group of Illinois community college leaders named to the Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society All-Illinois Academic Team.

The Board also accepted $25,810 in grant funding from the Illinois Board of Higher Education for the Illinois Cooperative Work Study Program.  The program provides partial funding for employers who hire JWCC students for internships.
