County Preference Ordinance On First Reading for Springfield City Council

Springfield aldermen will take another crack at the issue of providing a preference to Sangamon County businesses, similar to the one already given to companies located within the city limits.


Alderman Sam Cahnman has introduced an ordinance that would allow a county business to get a city contract even if their bid was as much as 3% higher than a bid from a business outside the county.


Currently, city businesses get a 5% preference on their bids.


Mayor Mike Houston vetoed a similar ordinance passed by alderman that gave county businesses outside the city limits the same 5% advantage that city businesses receive.
