The City Council will hear a first reading of a proposed ordinance Monday night. It's similar to a proposal voted down by Alderman in April 2018. If passed, it would bring in $1.5 million to the city annually. Quincy Mayor Kyle Moore says the money would be used to implement more of the Quincy Next strategic plan. Moore says that the proposal has been in the planning stage for six months.
