      Another vote required for Quincy firefighter agreement

      The council will have to revisit the vote next Monday.

      The Quincy City Council will have to vote again on a one year contract agreement with firefighters.

      A city ordinance requires a certain vote count, which did not happen Monday night.

      Mayor Kyle Moore confirmed that what did happen was a close 6 to 6 vote. Moore cast the tie breaker vote.

      The problem is, that vote didn't count.

      The council will have to revisit the vote next Monday.

      The original vote came after a lengthy executive session.

      Moore said he and Fire Chief Joe Henning are focusing on long-term plans for the department.

      Moore said he didn't want to agree to a longer deal without knowing how the budget will affect the fire department.
