Mayor Houston Urges No Vote on Residency Referendum

Mayor Mike Houston wants you to vote “no” on next month’s advisory referendum about a new residency rule for Springfield city workers.


Houston says he’s a supporter of a residency requirement, but says the reality is that imposing the rule on future hires would be a material change in working conditions that would have to be negotiated with nearly two-dozen employee unions.


And Houston says that could force the city to make costly concessions.


Alderman Joe McMenamin doesn’t believe the city would have to make major concessions to implement the change, but Houston says he has a bridge to sell anyone who believes that.
