League of Women Voters talks about garbage and recycling in Quincy
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -
The League of Women Voters is speaking out about the proposed options for garbage and recycling in the city of Quincy.
League president Mary Ann Klein spoke before the Quincy city council Monday night. She said the League feels there needs to be more wide-ranging studies and community education before a decision is made.
She asked the mayor and the city council to table the discussion until that can happen.
"I think that people are confused about what has been proposed, so any time there's something as radical as this proposed, we think that it should be studied further, that's our method in the League, and once the study has been completed, you get behind what you think is opportune," Klein said.
Mayor Kyle Moore has said he wants a final decision on privatizing garbage and recycling collection by the end of the month.
Also at the city council, after a week delay, aldermen approved re-appointing fire chief Joe Henning and police chief Rob Copley. They also voted to add a three way stop sign at 9th and Spring.
