Quincy's mayor is celebrating an important milestone in his career. Monday was Mayor Kyle Moore's 100th day in office.
It may not be a huge milestone, but it's an important one.
After spending 100 days in office, Mayor Kyle Moore brought KHQA up to speed on his time in office.
"It feels pretty good. It's gone by really quick. I've been greeted so warmly by the community. It's really been quite the whirlwind over the last three months. I'm really proud of what we've accomplished over the last 100 days so far," Moore said.
He's implemented different programs throughout his time in office including a community score card system for the city.
Mayor Moore hopes to see his bigger dreams for the city come to life.
"I'd like to see one of our existing employers expand. I've spent the last hundred days visiting 46 of our largest employers here in town, seeing if there's something that the city of Quincy can help them do to grow," Moore said.
Quincy resident Karen Mutchler sees Mayor Moore's progress as positive.
"I think he's done pretty good. He's pretty much been saving the city of Quincy money, and that's pretty good, it's what we need here," Mutchler said.
There were just a few things she hoped the mayor would work towards as well.
"We've got a lot of really bad roads, that really need to be taken care of. And alleys that are really bad. I would say more of the corners of streets, on all streets need to be made for wheelchair bound people. I think in time, talk to him, and that, he might get that done, because he's seems like a pretty fair guy," Mutchler said.
Mayor Moore started a monthly program called "Lunch in the Park with the Mayor."
This month's lunch is this Wednesday from 12 to 1 at Washington Park.
The mayor encourages anyone with concerns or comments to stop by.
