The Quincy City Council has approved a request by Quincy Federation Local 809 to use city rights of way if a strike takes place next week.

The council approved a petition Monday night by the union to encroach on city rights of way.

That’s so teachers can picket in front of all Quincy Public School buildings if there's a strike starting next Monday.

Mayor Kyle Moore says when it comes to the effects of a possible strike, faith-based and private organizations have more of a role to play than the city.

The council also approved a bid of just under $200,000 for concrete patching and crack sealing some city streets.

City Engineer Jeff Conte says it's the first step in a multi-year plan, with more bids likely to go out in both 2018 and 2019.

Conte says work will take place in the Trinity Lake sub-division on the city's southeast side and on North 30th Street between Maine and Broadway.
