The Quincy Park Board met Wednesday night and further discussed a proposed referendum on the April 2019 ballot to help fund riverfront 

Board members heard a timeline of when they would need to submit documents to put a referendum on the April ballot.

The $4 million to $6 million plan would be split between city, county and park district funding.

The park district would be on the hook for roughly $1.5 million and they're asking voters for help.

Board President Bob Gough said if the board wants voters to weigh in in the April election, park officials must submit documents by the end of the year.

"If the county and city don't participate, then it's not going to happen. So what we need to do is get commitments from them for a portion and then our board will see the commitments in writing from the city and county and then we will decide if we want to put it on a referendum," said Gough.

Also at Wednesday's park board meeting, members approved moving a monument in Clat Adams park.

They also approved design and engineering plans for the Bill Klingner Trail from 5th Street to Bonansinga Drive, plus tree removal as part of that plan.
