Alderman McMenamin's Plan Raises Sewer Fee For Sewer Upkeep

A Springfield alderman is proposing an increase in sewer fees… but a smaller one that originally proposed by Mayor Mike Houston… as a way to pay for some of the city’s infrastructure needs.


Alderman Joe McMenamin’s proposal would raise monthly sewer fees by about a third, an increase of more than $3 per month.


McMenamin says the money would be kept in a special sewer fund that could only be used for sewer projects.


Some aldermen had already rejected Houston’s plan to double sewer fees over four years.


Houston is now touting a sales tax hike to pay for sewer and road projects.
