Mayor Mike Houston’s choice to be the city’s next corporation counsel has made a good impression on aldermen in his first face-to-face meeting with them.
Todd Greenburg offered some details about his departure from his last job as Bloomington city attorney, saying he clashed with that city’s mayor over the release of documents.
Greenburg said the mayor wanted the documents released immediately, while Greenburg said that decision should go before the City Council… a position that appealed to Springfield aldermen during Monday’s committee of the whole meeting.
But Greenburg would not provide information about a letter he sent to the Bloomington city manager in October that led to him being placed on paid leave… saying that revealing that would violate a confidentiality agreement.
His appointment comes up for a final vote next week.
