Answers: Questions about Prairie Farms demolition, free Internet access

Why is there not a fence surrounding the Prairie Farms demolition site at 18th and Broadway?

The city's demolition ordinance requires the site be secured with a 4-foot fence. An orange construction fence is present at the site. It appears the demolition contractor is not securing the site when demolition is not occurring.

"The Inspection Department is contacting the property owner to reaffirm the demolition code fence compliance requirements and to warn the property owner the fence needs to be standing when the site is not in active demolition," said Chuck Bevelheimer, director of the Department of Planning and Development.

John Wood Community College had 20 computers that were open for public use at the Paul Heath Center. The computers were obtained through a grant to provide public access to the Internet. Has this service been suspended? Are there other places in Quincy where free Internet access is available?

Public access to computers at JWCC will actually be increased late this summer and early fall, according to Phil Conover, interim vice president for instruction.

"Upon evaluating use of the technology by the public and students, JWCC is in the process of installing 20-22 computers in its library on the Quincy campus. This change will provide access to more computers more hours per week with the added benefits of library staff assistance and nominal fee-based printing capabilities. While this transition is taking place, four computers are currently reserved for public access in the JWCC library," Conover said.

In addition, Quincy Public Library offers free public access to computers.
