Mayor, McMenamin Exchange Words Over Residency, Contracts


The biggest proponent of a residency requirement for new city workers says the issue can’t go forward as long as Mike Houston is mayor… because he says the mayor doesn’t know how to negotiate contracts. 

 

Alderman Joe McMenamin did not mince words about the mayor as he responded to a question at Tuesday’s City Council meeting about why such a rule has not been pursued.  McMenamin says there’s no point in trying to reinstate the rule because the mayor has already said he will, quote, “give away the house” to employee unions. 

 

Houston says the city will be required to make concessions if it tries to impose a new residency rule on union members… and he says the city simply cannot afford to do that.
