Mayor Houston Vetoes Tow Ordinance


Even though it passed the City Council, Springfield Mayor Mike Houston used his veto pen on an ordinance that would reduce Springfield’s tow fee by half.

 

Houston says that the tow fee is meant to be a deterrent and prevent vehicles from being used in crimes.

 

In a memo sent to aldermen, Houston says DUI’s and driving with a suspended or revoked license made up over 80 percent of the tows Springfield conducted.

 

Two weeks ago after the ordinance passed, the Springfield budget director said the ordinance would put a quarter-million-dollar hole in the police budget.

 

Houston asked aldermen to discuss the issue later this month. This is the second time Houston has used his veto power.
