City Council adopts fuel flowage, landing fees at Quincy Regional Airport

Will help pay for fire protection at airport for SkyWest flights

The Quincy City Council has approved re-instating a fuel flowage fee, and increasing the landing fee at Quincy Regional Airport.

The Council voted Monday night to re-instate a 10 cent per gallon fuel flowage fee, and increase the landing fee to 70 cents per one thousand pounds at Quincy Regional Airport. Those fees will help pay for staffing a Quincy firefighter at the airport when new carrier SkyWest starts offering two daily jet flights to Chicago on December 1st. The Council approved nearly $860,000 in bids for Utilities Department projects and tech. That includes nearly $190,000 for automatic meter reading technology, and bids of $225,000 for the Larch Road Drainage Improvement plan, and nearly $454,000 for Phase one of the Curved Creek project.

The Council also approved a first reading of a proposed ordinance to permanently move up the start time of Council meetings to 7 PM.
