County Board spends $609,000 to re-pave 3 miles of N. 1200th Street

Adams County Board members have learned that progress on one road project has been delayed, while another is set to begin. 

The County Board Tuesday night voted to spend nearly $609,000 to re-pave nearly 3 miles of North 1200th Avenue, from 1900th Street to 2200th Street. That section of road is north of Liberty. $458,000 of the money is from the state of Illinois, in Rebuild Illinois capital funding. The rest comes from the County's Matching Tax Fund. The Board learned that a request for bids on a proposed roundabout at 48th and State Street in Quincy won't be submitted until September, and that a bid likely won't be awarded until November. The County Board also voted to accept a $200,000 grant, to be used as seed money for the proposed Adams County Land Bank program. The program would be created under an agreement between the County, the City of Quincy and the Two Rivers Regional Council of Public Officials. Under the plan, Two Rivers would administer the program. A formal agreement is 2 to 3 months away from being completed.

The County Board also voted to lift the late fee on the first installment of property tax payments. It's the second year in a row the County Board has agreed to lift the late fee.
