17-unit apartment complex now part of city

The City of Quincy grew a little larger Monday night.  

The Quincy City Council approved a final reading of an ordinance that annexed an apartment complex into the city, near the intersection of 24th and Koch's Lane. The move is expected to bring in up to $8,000 a year in state tax revenue, and about $5,000 a year in local revenue to the city. The 17 apartments are already connected to city water and sewer, and according to Director of Planning and Development Chuck Bevelheimer, they're also connected on three sides to the city. That means under city statute, they needed to be a part of the city. 

The Council also approved the $8,000 purchase of a new K-9 officer for the Quincy Police Department. The money for the new officer comes from the Police Benevolent and Protective Association.
