The main order of business of the Quincy City Council Monday night was to get the ball rolling on Quincy Regional Airport’s runway project.

The council approved execution of a $9-million supplemental grant and a $600,000 contract for engineering and planning services for phase one of the three phase project.

The U.S. Department of Transportation will cover 90 percent of the cost of the project, with the state and the city covering the rest.

The runway project involves the reconstruction and rehabilitation of the airport’s primary runway, the removal of its third runway surface and parallel taxiway and the reconstruction of another taxiway.
