Park Board Looks at Flood Damage

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

The floodwaters have mostly receded from the Quincy riverfront, and now the park district is looking at the damage.

At Wednesday's Park board meeting, Executive Director Ed Seger said much of the damage came from the stormy weather - including some bank erosion on Cedar Creek Trail.

But he says the floodwaters damaged the fountain at Clat Adams park because the control pump was underwater.

It will be out of service for a couple of weeks.

"I'm anticipating that with a lot of weddings and a lot of high schoolers like to take pictures at the fountain, and I'm anticipating there will be some disappointment because we just can't go any faster than that, we're going to be in the hands of an electrician to go and look at that," he said.

Also at the meeting, new and re-elected members were sworn in.

They also voted to keep the board officers the same with John Frankenhoff as president and Jeff Vancamp as vice president.
