At Wednesday night's GREDF annual meeting, two Thomas A. Oakley awards were handed out.

Both ADM and the 2019 Quincy City Council received the awards.

They are the first two recipients of the award since Oakley himself received the initial honor.

It recognizes economic innovation. ADM was chosen for recent investment in the community, infrastructure, and technology.

"We're interested in our shareholder value. Our investment here improves that shareholder value and it also helps the community and we like to give back to the community. This community has a good work ethic," said Brad Dalke with ADM.

Meanwhile, City council received the Thomas A. Oakley Award for the passage of the 45 by 30 plan which seeks to grow Quincy's population to 45,000 by the year 2030.
