The Village of Quincy Council met March 19, 2019 at 7:30 p.m. in Council Chambers.

The Village Solicitor Steve Fansler was present for the meeting. The Council spend a great deal of time discussing the operation of the Joint Sewer Plant and the agreement that has been in place since 2002 when the new plant went on line. Several items of the agreement have been violated. After much discussed it was voted that the agreement that was in place was no longer an operating agreement and would no longer be honored by the Village of Quincy. Quincy has been operating the plant without participation from DeGraff for several months and a new agreement would need to be negotiated or the Village of Quincy will need to continue operating the plant and billing DeGraff for the expenses to keep the plant up and running.
