County could revisit agreement if legislation is passed in IL Gen Assembly

The Adams County Board has voted to approve an agreement with the city of Quincy over a revised 911 Board. 

The County approved the agreement Wednesday night, even though they've wanted to have certain language changed in the state law that forced the 911 Board makeup to be changed. The law currently limits County Boards to having one elected member on the 911 Board, while the City of Quincy can have three Aldermen on the Board. State Senator Jil Tracy has filed an amendment that would change that. According to County Board member Ryan Niekamp, if the revision becomes law, the County could re-visit the agreement.

The Quincy City Council has already approved the agreement, which needed to go into effect by July 1st. Otherwise, the 911 Board would lose out on state funding. The County Board also approved spending $130,000 as its' share of the cost of re-surfacing 1.5 miles of South 24th Street in Quincy, from Payson Road to Ghost Hollow Road.
