Springfield aldermen may demand more oversight of some city contracts.
Alderman Gail Simpson introduced an ordinance to require council approval of any contracts over $25,000.
Currently, only contracts above $100,000 must go before the council.
But city officials say that move would nearly triple the number of ordinances that aldermen would have to review.
So Simpson agreed to change the amount to $50,000. The full city council will consider her proposal next week.
