The Council approved a petition Monday night by the union to encroach on city rights-of-way, to picket in front of all Quincy Public Schools buildings if there's a strike starting next Monday. Mayor Kyle Moore says that when it comes to the effects of a possible strike, there's not a lot for the city to do.

The Council approved a bid of just under $200,000 for concrete patching and crack sealing some city streets. City Engineer Jeff Conte says it's the first step in a multi-year plan.

Conte says the work will take place in the Trinity Lake sub-division on the city's southeast side, and on North 30th Street, between Maine and Broadway.
