Staff report

QUINCY — The Village of Quincy Council appointed Bruce Stotler and Daniel Robinson to the council during its first meeting of the year on Jan. 2, filling two seats left vacant after the November 2017 election. Both seats come with a four-year term.

Robinson was then appointed as council president and Stotler was appointed to represent the Village of Quincy on the Joint Sewer Board for 2018. Kirk Helmandollar remains a representative as the Village Administrator.

The council discussed meeting times and will keep the meeting dates of the first and third Tuesday of each month, at 7:30 p.m., in the Village of Quincy Council Chamber, located at 115 N. Miami St.

Temporary appropriations were approved to allow for payment of current bills until final appropriations can be set. A final total was not available at the time.

Concern was expressed about children and adults sledding on the hills in the downtown area of Quincy. Drivers are asked to be cautious of the east side of South Street and New Street, as well as the cross section of Poplar Street between these two streets.

A brief discussion was held concerning the building of a triplex unit on Canby Street and future construction of more units.

Council also discussed the need for updates to the current Christmas lights. The current lights are vintage and need to be updated, with a possible determination of replacement only as needed. This will be looked at during the upcoming year.

The next meeting is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. on Jan. 16.
