QPD turns to mediator for contract issues

      The Quincy Police Department will try mediation instead of arbitration to come up with a contract agreement.

      That's what Chief Rob Copley reported at the Quincy City Council Monday night according to the

      Quincy Journal


      This concerns contracts for both the patrol officer and sergeants. Both groups have been working without a contract for about a year.

      They are trying to come up with a new contract that will last for 3 years.

      The alderman also passed a resolution that would appropriate 1.1 million dollars into the motor fuel tax funds.

      City engineer Jeff Steinkamp says that over the next few months a decision will be made on which roads will get worked on.
