  • No decision yet in Quincy lawsuit

    No decision will be made in the case of Miles Womack vs. the city of Quincy before 60 days, although both sides finished testimony Sept. 24.

    Womack is suing the city because he was never notified that the city was no longer using Interlocken Lakes, owned by Womack, as a backup to the water system. The city agreed in 1998 to use the lakes because of the poor quality of the city's drinking water at the time.
