Springfield Aldermen voted to pass several significant ordinances Tuesday on the consent agenda.
One would give public works the authority to go on nuisance property to trim weeds.
A set of ordinances approves an agreement with the state of Illinois to provide fire protection services for the Illinois State Fair Grounds. There are also several ordinances that allow for the purchase of six heavy-duty vehicles for the Springfield Fire Department for just over a quarter-million dollars.
The city also moved to approve $32.7 million for the new pump stations for the water division.
A re-write of the city's process for subdividing land was also approved, making it easier for developers to propose new developments to city hall.
In addition to these ordinances, aldermen approved a contract for the sale of the former west branch library to Sacred Heart Griffin school for $40,000.
Aldermen place what is considered non-controversial ordinances on the consent agenda to approve several ordinances with one vote.
