QUINCY — A contract for mosquito spraying was awarded during the June 2 meeting of the village of Quincy Council.
The Council voted to enter into an agreement with Bug-A-Boo to apply mosquito spray on an as needed basis at $175.00 per application.
Council decided to support the formation of a six-county unit to govern federal grant money to provide services to people in need. A three-county unit relinquished their governing powers last year and a temporary unit governed these funds in order to keep the funding in the counties.
This unit is now requesting support in making this a permanent venture and forming a six county unit: Delaware, Madison, Union, Logan, Champaign and Shelby. This will allow services to be maintained and money kept in the counties. A letter of support will be issued by the village.
The Council was informed that the bidding process was complete and work on alleys in the Village may begin as soon as the middle of July. All residents on an alley will need to trim any shrubs hanging in the alleys to prevent the project from doing it for them. If the village has to do the work the shrubs will be done for the betterment of the project and cost may be assessed to property owners. Council suggests that property owners trim their own shrubs to prevent unwanted shapes or removal of shrubs.
Council was informed that a special election will be held Aug. 4, 2015, to support a Historical Society issue. More information will follow.
