Alderman Uses Infrastructure Plan To Highlight Pension Funding

The city of Springfield is proposing a $2 million project to fix some of its biggest trouble spots with alleys and drainage systems.


But Alderman Joe McMenamin says that’s too extravagant… and wants to divert half that amount to the city’s police and fire pensions instead.


McMenamin says infrastructure and pensions are both important… and one should not be funded over the other.


City budget director Bill McCarty, though, says they are really separate issues and says infrastructure money shouldn’t be diverted for pensions.
