Mayor Urges Springfield To Reject Residency Referendum

Mayor Mike Houston says he’s remains a firm supporter of a residency rule for city workers… but he’s still urging Springfield residents to vote against the idea in next month’s advisory referendum.


Houston says any push by aldermen to reinstate a residency requirement would put the city in a position of having to negotiate the change with nearly two dozen unions… and to make costly concessions to get them to go along with it. 


Alderman Joe McMenamin… who is pushing to reinstate the residency rule… says he doesn’t think the city will have to make concessions in order to impose the new requirement.  But Houston says anyone who thinks that doesn’t know what they’re talking about.
