Quincy City Council Approves Hiring Workers to Patch Streets
The city of Quincy is in the market for three new employees to help patch the city’s streets.
The Quincy City Council Monday night approved a supplemental budget ordinance, freeing up $335,000 to hire three concrete workers for the Central Services department.
City officials cited higher than anticipated sales tax and home rule tax revenues as the reason for being able to fund the additional workers.
The city hopes to have the new employees in place as soon as possible to begin patching streets.
The council also approved a nearly $76-thousand dollar bid for sidewalk construction on North 24th Street between Northbrook and Southbrook, with half the cost of the project to be paid for by the Friends of the Trail.
