Quincy construction company R.L. Brink Corp. was suspended by the Illinois Department of Transportation last week from working on road construction projects involving state funds for allegedly violating state responsible bidder requirements.
The company is accused of improperly classifying workers while bidding on construction projects in 2010 and 2011 in Brown, Adams and Hancock counties, as well as making false statements and submitting false records. Brink denies the claims.

I’ve taken a few calls on the citywide cleanup in Quincy, and I know others in the newsroom have as well. It is from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 22, at the lot on Front and Delaware streets.
To access the site, residents should use Payson Avenue starting at Sixth Street and heading west to Front Street. The Quincy Police Department and employees of Allied Waste will direct vehicles to the disposal area. Residents will be required to show proof of residency to gain access to the site during the collection.
Here is the information from The Herald-Whig and the city. Don’t forget about all the materials that cannot be dropped off.
Also keep in mind that starting Sept. 4, Quincy Recycle will start accepting electronics for disposal.
