McMenamin Accuses Mayor, Mehlick Of ''Censoring'' His Request To Release Meeting Recording

A Springfield alderman is accusing Mayor Mike Houston and the city’s acting corporation counsel of “censorship” by trying to keep him from presenting an ordinance. 


Ward 7’s Joe McMenamin wants the City Council to vote on whether to release a recording of a closed door meeting earlier this month in which Houston talked with aldermen about a possible privatization of Oak Ridge Cemetery.  That meeting prompted a civil lawsuit… and the filing of a police report. 


McMenamin says Acting Corporation Counsel John Mehlick is dragging his feet on drafting the ordinance… and he says it’s not the first time it’s happened.  Houston says he wants a judge to review the recording and decide if it must be released.
