Springfield Corporation Counsel Resigns, Second Time in Six Months


The “Help Wanted” sign is out again in Springfield’s corporation counsel office.

 

Retired judge John Mehlick, who had been serving as Mayor Mike Houston’s top lawyer since the summer, has submitted his resignation, effective December 14th.

 

A spokesman for Houston was in the meeting where Mehlick announced his decision, but says Mehlick did not offer a reason for his departure.

 

Mehlick stepped in after Mark Cullen resigned as corporation counsel following revelations about his role in the police department file shredding scandal.

 

But in recent weeks, Mehlick has clashed with aldermen on several issues… including their claims that he has dragged his feet on drafting ordinances for them.
