Quincy council handles slate of business
At the regular meeting of the Quincy City Council on Dec. 4, council members learned quite a bit and chose a time to discuss the city’s budget for 2019.
Council member Andrew Royer was absent.
Near the beginning of the meeting, John Boyd, Quincy School District superintendent, gave a presentation about the upcoming school levy proposal that will be voted on in the next election. Boyd provided handouts and comparisons to previous levies.
The council also heard from Curt Morris about an insurance program, the Cities Insurance Association of Washington policy, up for renewal for 2019.
Then the council heard a little about the Grant County Economic Development Council from the organization’s business recruitment manager, Emily Smith.
After that, the council dealt with five engineering items on the agenda.
One was a proposal that the council approve a payment from Oath to cover the company’s obligation for frontage improvements. The payment of $533,173 stems from a development agreement the city council OK’d in 2016. The frontage improvements are on M Street NE and Columbia Way NE. The proposal states that the money would be held by the city for use in a future project involving those streets. The council approved the motion.
The final point of council business was to discuss workshops for council members on the 2019 city budget and choose meeting times.
