The City of Springfield has a new corporation counsel, and this one was approved the Springfield City Council.
Aldermen approved former Bloomington city attorney Todd Greenburg Tuesday, after several weeks of delay. Greenburg left Bloomington in a severance agreement after conflicts with elected officials.
Springfield aldermen postponed approving Greenburg two weeks ago because Greenburg was out of town on vacation, and not available for questions.
Greenburg says he will jump right in to the office to get to work on the City of Springfield's legal matters. Greenburg replaces several acting corporation counsels who ran the office after Mark Cullen resigned amid the Springfield Police IA file shred scandal.
With the approval to be Springfield's Corporation Counsel, Greenburg will officially part ways with Bloomington.
Aldermen Frank Edwards and Sam Cahnman voted no.
