Mayor and Police & Fire Chiefs At Odds Over Proposed Budget Cuts

Jeff Dorsey

The battle is on between the Mayor of Quincy and the city’s Police and Fire Chiefs over the Mayor’s proposed budget cuts. 

According to a KHQA-TV report, Third Ward Alderman Paul Havermale, who serves the people in the area affected by the fire station closing, are voicing their concerns as there are currently two petitions circulating to keep the station open.

According to city officials, the closing of that fire station would save some $22,000 annually in operating costs. Police Chief Copley feels the crime climate of the community is changing and being four officers short is not a wise thing to do right now.

I imagine that the Council Chamber at City Hall will be packed Monday as the council will conduct its budget vote. Budget cuts are never easy. Someone always comes out bruised. How bad the bruises are will be determined Monday night.
