Springfield Mayor Mike Houston
Mayor Mike Houston is being coy about the fate of an ordinance that would give county businesses the same advantage as city companies when it comes to bidding for City Hall contracts.
Aldermen approved the ordinance this week, but Houston opposes extending the same five-percent preference to county firms.
He says he’d rather see a smaller advantage, perhaps two-percent, for those companies.
But Houston won’t say if he will veto the ordinance.
He promises an announcement before the next City Council meeting on September 18th.
