The recently completed water filtration project was discussed during a Quincy Council meeting Tuesday.
Village Administrator Kirk Helmandollar informed council that the village has seen a three-pound change in water pressure. The water department wants to make sure the village pipes can handle the change in pressure before it increases the water pressure again. The project was done to improve water quality and pressure for the village.
A grand opening will be held for the completion of the project on October 30th from 5-6 pm. The event will be held at the water department next to the water tower.
Two replacement levies on the November ballot were discussed. One of the levies is an operating levy which covers street lights and basic operations around the village. The second levy is for street repairs which would allow for road maintenance and paving. The levies will be replacing two expiring levies.
Mayor Dan Robinson discusses the water filtration project and the levies.
Council passed a motion for $12,481 to pay for its portion of the monitoring system that will be installed at the joint sewer plant.
Council looks to save money on its phone, fax, and Internet services. Council passed a motion to bundle the services with Century Link for three years. The bundle will save the village $32 a month.
The Village of Quincy Council will meet again on October 16th at 7:30 pm.
