Springfield Aldermen Approve Braasch, Supplemental Appropriations


Two years after he started the job, a longtime friend and former aide to Mayor Mike Houston has won City Council approval for his appointment as a top administrator at City Water Light and Power.

 

Bob Braasch had been serving in an interim capacity since 2012, after Houston refused to submit the nomination for fear that aldermen would vote it down.

 

The vote in favor was 7-2… with Ward 2’s Gail Simpson and Ward 5’s Sam Cahnman voting “no,” and Ward 3’s Doris Turner voting present.

 

In other Council news, aldermen approved the $60,000 emergency appropriation to help Oak Ridge Cemetery make payroll and keep operating through the end of the month.
