Local businesses concerned about downtown parking lot

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

Some local business owners are concerned that too many tax dollars are being spent on unneeded parking lot features at 6th and Jersey.

Sam Franklyn owns Vacuum Clinic in Quincy. He says he received paperwork recorded by the city of Quincy that showed the price of the project had risen by around $40,000. He says much of that cost came from adding trees and adding a wrought iron fence. 

Franklyn says he's started a petition, and so far several business owners have signed.
