Effingham, Ill. (Quincy, Ill.) – The city of Quincy may be getting out of the water and sewer business.
Quincy Alderman Paul Havermale said at Monday’s city council meeting that American Water has approached him about buying the city’s water and sewer plant.
American used to operate the plant for the city, but lost the contract in 2015. Quincy Mayor Kyle Moore said he’s willing to listen to American Water, but is worried about how high rates may go if the city sells its water and sewer plants.
