City Council Approves Infrastructure Spending Over McMenamin's Objection

The Springfield City Council has approved a $2 million plan to fix alleys and correct drainage problems around the city. 


The only “no” vote was Alderman Joe McMenamin… who at first wanted to divert money from the infrastructure plan to the city’s pension funds.  When told that couldn’t be done under the law, McMenamin questioned how the city found $2 million that wasn’t part of the original public works budget… and whether that means the upcoming sales tax hike for infrastructure was unnecessary. 


But other aldermen say the city needs all that money… and then some… to keep pace with infrastructure needs.
