Quincy City Council Votes on Traffic Commission Recommendations


A busy night in the Quincy City Council chambers, as aldermen considered a recent traffic study near Quincy University.

Several weeks ago, the second ward aldermen asked the traffic commission to look at 20th and Chestnut where a student was hit and injured in January.

The council agreed with the traffic commissions' recommendations, including two LED pedestrian warning signs furnished by QU, adding a north-south crosswalk, and raising more awareness about pedestrian safety in the area.

Jeff Steinkamp says he's pleased with the results. 

"Stop signs are made to control traffic, not to control speed - so I think it was a good decision. I think these improvements will help very much, we'll get started on them as soon as we can and I think it's going to make it safer for everyone in that area," said Steinkamp.

In other business, aldermen voted to re-finance two separate loans. They also listened to a second presentation on an ordinance to amend the library project fund line of the fiscal year budget.
