QUINCY, Ill. (AP) - The mayor of Quincy says cleanup from strong storms earlier this month will top hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Mayor Kyle Moore said at a Quincy City Council meeting Monday that the city spent about $80,000 a day after the wind storm struck on July 13. Since then costs have fallen to about $60,000 a day.

The Quincy Herald-Whig reports (https://bit.ly/1IqmdhM ) that Moore says it may take another two to three weeks clear all of the brush from the city. Then the city will move to restoring infrastructure and trees.

Moore says he’ll have more detailed costs soon. He says the city also is figuring out how much of the cleanup costs that insurance will cover. The council voted 13-0 to approve $90,000 to pay contractors more quickly.
