Houston Pulls The Plug On Oak Ridge Privatization


Springfield Mayor Mike Houston is pulling the plug on privatizing Oak Ridge Cemetery. 

 

A statement from the mayor’s office says it is now clear that there are not enough votes on the City Council to proceed with any discussion of turning Oak Ridge operations over to a private firm.  So the mayor says the city will continue to subsidize Oak Ridge operations to the tune of $400,000 a year, and will include that amount in the new city budget that his staff is preparing. 

 

Houston says he was just following the direction of aldermen when he began looking into the possibility of contracting for a private firm to manage the cemetery.
