City of Quincy releases proposed re-opening guidelines for bars, restaurants

4 months, 1 week ago by Scott Hardy

Will be voted on Tuesday by City Council

The City of Quincy has released proposed guidelines for the city's bars and restaurants when they re-open next Friday.

The Mayor's Office Friday released a statement saying that the Quincy City Council will be voting on the guidelines at Tuesday's council meeting. A statement says that those guidelines will include letting bars and restaurants use beer gardens, as long as indoor seating is removed or made inaccessible. They'll also have to provide outdoor dining on sidewalks, including putting tables where they're not adjacent to their property, if they've gotten written approval from neighboring property owners. The City also says that public streets, alleys and parking lots may be closed to provide more spacing. Each request would have to be approved by the City Council. The proposed ordinance would also allow tents, as long as temporary structure requirements are followed. It wouldn't allow live music, and and recorded music would have to end at 10 PM. The final guidelines will be released after they are approved by the City Council.

The City says it expects the State of Illinois to issue its' own guidelines in the next few days and the City will modify their guidelines to reflect the State’s requirements.
