Mayor Kyle Moore breaks 7-7 tie

Starting in November, the Quincy City Council will start its' meetings at 7 PM.

That's after Quincy Mayor Kyle Moore Tuesday night broke a 7-7 deadlock, and voted to approve an ordinance to move the start time of the meeting from 7:30 to 7 PM. Moore and supporters wanted to have the City Council meeting start at the same time as other area governmental meetings, such as the Adams County Board. Opponents say the earlier start time would limit the time for committee meetings, which are usually held before the Council meets. The Council also approved a resolution to buy up to 55 trees for the city's fall Tree Program. Ten trees will be planted in The District, and 45 trees will be available for residents to buy for $40 each, and plant on city rights-of-way. The trees will be planted by Leffers Landscaping.

The Council also approved having an ordinance drawn up for a possible zoning change at 30th and Locust. A Macomb company wants to use the land to build a concrete plant, which is opposed by residents of near-by residential areas. They're worried about possible fumes from the plant affecting their health. The ordinance will get a first reading next week.
