Residency Referendum Fails Springfield City Council

Another setback for the effort to impose a residency requirement on new city workers in Springfield.


Alderman Joe McMenamin’s attempt to put the question on the ballot for city voters failed on a 5-5 tie Wednesday.


Mayor Mike Houston joined four aldermen in opposing the non-binding referendum.


Houston says any new residency rule would have to be negotiated with the city’s employee unions, which could demand costly concessions from the city in exchange for agreeing to a residency requirement.
