What will Quincy look like, feel like and be 20 years from now? That is the question that was addressed Tuesday evening by folks who came together to imagine how Quincy could look in 2033.
AUTO BROKERING, CAR DETAILING
With some 30-plus years in the automotive business, Jack Brown at Quincy Auto Co. continues to build on his reputation for finding exactly the right vehicle, virtually any make and model either new or used, for his customers. And, as an auto broker and with the contacts he has made in the business over several decades, he has success in putting together deals that are typically much better than those buyers can get dealing directly with most dealerships.
His used inventory always looks showroom new and now he is offering a fall special on that same thorough detailing service. For $99 (trucks slightly more), his staff will put your vehicle in that same showroom new condition, inside and out. This is a huge savings over the regular price! The dealership is on East Main Street across from the DMV offices in East Quincy.
As the powers that be continue to drain county coffers with no sight of reinvestment into their future we chambers struggle on. Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT) was last reported bringing in annually just over 1.1 million. Yet, not a dime of this money is being reinvested back into the industry that created it. Plumas County is stocked. We have everything to offer, the party is set, but there are no invitations being sent. Marketing is so critical to any entity. If I don’t continue to market my store, keeping my name out there I will be forced to close. We are told that TOT is up. Yes, I believe this is true. But only true when looking at the monetary bottom line. There are more lodging providers in the county than ever before and rates are higher than ever. I wonder what the overall occupancy rate is for the last few years. I bet you will find that it is down and not up.
FIRST FRIDAY ART SHOW OCT. 4
Debbie Groesser invites all to the next First Friday Art Show and Reception on Oct. 4, from 5 to 9 p.m. The show’s theme is “Reflections.” And, as always, there will be lots of prizes and refreshments.
