Ald. McMenamin: City's Attorney Won't Craft Measure Ending Pay Spike


Alderman Joe McMenamin’s attempt to immediately repeal a perk for Springfield police brass is being blocked… by the city’s attorney.

 

McMenamin tells the State Journal-Register editorial board that acting corporation counsel John Mehlick is refusing to draft an ordinance to repeal the twice-yearly five-percent pay spike that cops have gotten for years.

 

That perk will go away next year anyway under a new police contract… but McMenamin wants to eliminate it before Police Chief Robert Williams retires next month.

 

The mayor’s office says the pay spike falls under executive authority, not legislative.
