Springfield City Hall: Final Budget Proposals Presented, Public Hearing Scheduled

The final numbers have been proposed as Springfield aldermen prepare to approve the budgets for fiscal year 2014, but not without your input.


During the final budget hearing Monday, Mayor Mike Houston proposed a budget that is just .9 percent over last year.


Houston says that Springfield Green will be transferred from the mayor's office to Public Works while Homeland Security will be transferred to the Police Department.


The Office of Budget and Management proposed a budget that will be down by just .9 percent.


Budget Director Bill McCarty says he will come back to the city council in the near future with the cost of planned fleet consolidation.


A public hearing on all proposed city department budgets will be held February 13th at 5:45 inside the council chambers.


The budget, which can be found online at, comes in at $114.7 million dollars, which is just over 3 percent over the previous year’s budget.
