Aldermen To Form Working Group on Infrastructure Funding


Several Springfield aldermen say they will take the lead on trying to craft a plan to address the city’s infrastructure needs.

 

Mayor Mike Houston has been promising an infrastructure plan since he ran for the office two years ago, but said this week that he won’t roll out his plan because he can’t find enough support among aldermen to pass it.

 

Now Aldermen Cory Jobe, Doris Turner and Tim Griffin say they will seek input from government, businesses, labor unions, and the public at large to develop a plan that can pass.

 

But it’s unclear how they can fund an estimated multi-million dollar price tag, since a majority of aldermen say they won’t support any tax increase to pay for it.
