Houston Predicts Aldermen Will Support Jobe's Inspector General Proposal

It wasn’t the way he wanted to go, but Springfield Mayor Mike Houston says it appears that aldermen will revise his proposed city budget to include the position of inspector general. 


Alderman Cory Jobe has proposed re-allocating $80,000 from Houston’s budget to fund an inspector general under aldermanic control.  The IG would serve as a watchdog to investigate allegations of misconduct by city employees.  It’s unclear if that would be enough money for the position, or where additional funds might come from. 


Appearing live on 970 WMAY’s “Jim Leach Show,” Houston said he will go along with the move… if the position is affordable and truly independent.
