Springfield aldermen have put the debate over infrastructure funding on hold temporarily.
Aldermen decided to leave four separate ordinances in committee when Mayor Mike Houston was unable to attend Tuesday’s city council committee of the whole meeting.
The ordinances offer alternate ways of paying for street and sewer projects, through raising sales taxes, sewer fees, or some combination of the two.
Aldermen discussed the measures for two hours, and heard from supporters and opponents of the various funding ideas.
More discussion is expected at next week’s full council meeting.
