    Tuesday, April 28 2015 12:03 AM EDT2015-04-28 04:03:26 GMT
    Quincy aldermen voted 8-6 Monday to approve a nearly $32 million spending plan that calls for the elimination of four vacant police officer positions and the shuttering of Fire Station 6 at 24th and Cedar. The budget called for a little more than $1 million in reductions, with more than $700,000 of that coming from the Police and Fire departments. Cuts were sought as the city waits to see whether Gov. Bruce Rauner's proposal to reduce shared revenues is approved by the Legislature.
