Fire Fighter Contract, Minority Participation Program Pass City Council

In other City Council action, aldermen approved a new three-year contract for Springfield firefighters.


The only “no” vote came from Alderman Joe McMenamin, who voices concerns about the contract’s pay raises and its impact on the city’s pension debt.


The council also lifted a moratorium on boathouse construction at Lake Springfield… and approved a program that will encourage minority students to pursue careers in engineering or other fields related to railroad work.


The city, Sangamon County, and Hanson Professional Services will each contribute $20,000 to that effort.
