Residency Issue Could Soon Be Back In Front of Springfield Aldermen

Requiring future City of Springfield employees to live in the city could be back on the agenda soon as Aldermen work out what the ordinance may look like.


Nearly three months after Springfield residents passed a referendum supporting some form of a residency requirement for future city employees, aldermen may soon discuss the measure, but they are waiting until after some union contracts are worked out before muddying up their negotiations.


Alderman Joe McMenamin, who pushed for last year’s referendum, says votes are also being lined up through a possible amendment allowing for residents of several other areas in and around Springfield to be eligible for employment.


There’s still no timeline on when a residency ordinance would be in front of aldermen.
