Houston: Pending Appeal of Spiking Ruling Reason for Withholding Info From Aldermen


Top Springfield officials continue to defend what they did… and did not do… after learning about a discrepancy in how police pension benefits were being calculated.

 

City Treasurer Jim Langfelder read a statement at Tuesday’s City Council meeting, saying he did his duty by notifying Mayor Mike Houston when he became aware of the problem, which resulted in overpayments to a dozen retired cops.

 

And Houston says he did not inform aldermen right away because a state order to change the pension calculation was being appealed.

 

Ward 7 Alderman Joe McMenamin says it’s inexcusable that neither Houston nor Langfelder informed aldermen of the problem for nearly 18 months.
