Several Springfield Aldermen are saying it’s beyond time for the city to release recordings of a closed door executive session dealing with the possible privatization of Oak Ridge Cemetery.
A special Springfield City Council meeting scheduled for Tuesday will allow aldermen to vote to release that recording.
Mayor Mike Houston released partial transcripts of that October meeting late Friday and urged Aldermen to vote in favor of releasing the parts of the audio recording.
This was after a judge ruled the city violated the Open Meetings Act by holding the closed door meeting.
Previous attempts by Aldermen Sam Cahnman and Joe McMenamin to release the minutes and recordings of the meeting in question failed to pass the city council.
