Quincy City Council to update its sexual harassment policy


If 2017 taught us anything, it's that sexual harassment in the workplace has never been under a bigger microscope.

On Tuesday, Quincy City Council members heard the second reading of an ordinance to prevent any problems in city government.

The ordinance follows a new law signed into place by Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner. It requires all local governments to update their policies to a new recommended standard by Jan. 15th of this year.

Mayor Kyle Moore says considering the environment we live in today, it's always a good idea to update a sensitive subject.

"I think it's a good law signed by the Gov. Everyone needs to be treated equally regardless of what city or county government they work for, so yeah it's a good thing to be consistent across the board," said Mayor Moore.

Other key business included the recommended approval of a special permit for a woodworking and furniture manufacturing shop at 4801 State Street, along with approval of a special permit for Calvary Tabernacle Church to build a new church building on North 36th Street.
