Springfield Aldermen to Consider All Options to Address Infrastructure Needs


Springfield aldermen say they will have to consider all options as they look for tens of millions of dollars to pay for infrastructure repairs in the years ahead.

 

Even though the Public Works Department is seeking less money in its budget for the fiscal year that starts March 1st, Director Mark Mahoney warns that Springfield needs to spend more than $85 million in the next three years just to halt the decay in the city’s network of streets, sidewalks and sewers.

 

Alderman Gail Simpson is again raising her idea of a 1.5 percent tax on dining out, which she says could generate nearly a million dollars a year for infrastructure.
