Milton Proposal to Mayor Houston - Not Going To Happen

An idea floated last month by Springfield's school superintendent to raise money for education appears dead on arrival.


Superintendent Walter Milton proposed that the city of Springfield considerusing its taxing authority to impose a sales tax increase... and to share the new revenue with District 186. Milton told Mayor Mike Houston that he was going to suggest the idea...but Houston says since then, he's had no further contact with Milton about the idea. And appearing live on 970 WMAY, Houston says there's not much point in a follow-up call from Milton.


The Mayor says the city needs its sales tax revenue for vital city services...including infrastructure... and he has no interest in sharing that money with another governmental body.
