Drought Management Plan Gives Mayor Ultimate Authority

The power to impose even more stringent water conservation measures in Springfield now rests entirely in the hands of Mayor Mike Houston.


The city council voted unanimously Wednesday to approve an emergency measure that lets the mayor implement a series of steps if lake levels continue to drop because of the ongoing drought.


More severe limits on outdoor water use, and a surcharge on water bills… are possible if the dry spell continues.


The measure lets Houston impose, and lift, those restrictions without having to keep going back to aldermen for permission.
