The Council voted 12 to 1 Monday night to approve the $39 million budget for Fiscal Year 2021 - 2022. That lone no vote was from 2nd Ward Alderman Jeff Bergman, who expressed frustration that the City's Central Services Department doesn't have more staff to handle requests from city residents. After the meeting, out-going Mayor Kyle Moore said he understood, but said there wasn't much the administration could do, describing city revenues as "stagnant".

The Council also adopted the Quincy Riverfront Master Plan, a multi-year plan to improve the city's western edge along the Mississippi River. Some aldermen have expressed concern about the potential cost of implementing all 8 proposed phases to the plan. Consultant Maggie Strong said after the meeting that there will be plenty of time in the future to address their concerns.

The plan now just needs approval by the Quincy Park Board before it goes into effect. They plan to vote on it next month.
