Aldermen Won't Commit To Hunter Lake


Springfield aldermen have rejected a resolution declaring support for building a second lake to serve as the city’s backup water supply. 

 

The resolution earned only four “yes” votes, with five aldermen voting “no” and one… Alderman Joe McMenamin… abstaining.  McMenamin says the vote should have waited until a new round of studies is complete. 

 

The vote will do nothing to end the years of haggling over a new water supply.  City Water Light and Power says it’s still essential to find a secondary water source… and no matter what is ultimately chosen, the utility says a big water rate hike will be needed to pay for it.
