The Quincy City Council Monday night approved a resolution that would end those waivers, enacted after Governor JB Pritzker's first stay-at-home order, beginning as early as next Tuesday. Mayor Kyle Moore explains what those are.

So far, over 2,400 customers are behind on their water bills, meaning the city's missed out on $500,000 in revenue. The Council also approved extending waivers on certain ordinances for the city's bars and restaurants. Those were approved just before state entered Phase 3 of the Restore Illinois plan. Moore says it gives those businesses more flexibility.

The remaining waivers will remain in place until the Council decides to repeal them. The meeting was the first since March to be open to the public, with limited seating available and social distancing for the public and Aldermen.
