Mayor Houston's First Veto on County Contract Preference

Mayor Mike Houston vetoed an ordinance approved by aldermen two weeks ago that would give businesses outside the city limits, but within the county’s boundaries, the same advantage when bidding on contracts that businesses within the Springfield corporate limits receive.


The measure, which passed a split city council, would have allowed the county businesses to be considered the low bidder if they are up to 5 percent over what an out of area business bid.


Houston says that he would support an ordinance giving county businesses a 2 percent advantage, but he did not approve of the level playing field the original ordinance provided to county businesses.  


This marks the mayor's first veto.
