The Springfield City Council is scheduled tonight to vote on releasing an audio recording of a closed door meeting where city officials discussed the possible privatization of Oak Ridge Cemetery.
Judge John Schmidt ruled the meeting was a violation of the Open Meetings Act after the city was sued in court by a newspaper reporter.
Several aldermen say it’s beyond time for the recording to be released.
Ward 5’s Sam Cahnman says he’s been pushing for the release for months.
Alderman Joe McMenamin says it’s unclear how much the city will have to pay in attorney’s fees.
