Springfield City Budget Calls for Spending More on Fire and Police Pensions

The first draft of next year’s Springfield city budget calls for additional spending on police and fire pensions… without tax increases or layoffs.


But the State Journal-Register reports the city plans to cover some of those costs by reducing headcount through attrition and “consolidating” some positions, and through what is described as “aggressive collective bargaining.”


Aldermen will now start going through the budget section by section over the next month.


Deadline for passage is February 28th.
