Mayor Mike Houston has chosen the former city attorney for Bloomington to take over the job of corporation counsel in Springfield.
An ordinance to go before aldermen next week nominates J. Todd Greenburg to fill the post that was vacated by Mark Cullen last summer… and held temporarily by retired judge John Mehlick, whose resignation takes effect Saturday.
Greenburg is available after being placed on administrative leave in Bloomington back in October. That move came after Greenburg reportedly sent a letter with, quote, “a concerning tone” to Bloomington’s city manager. Greenburg received a severance package from Bloomington last month, a move that city officials said could avert a lawsuit over his departure.
