Mayor Casts Tie Breaking No Vote on Police Age Ordinance, Will Talk With Union

An ordinance that would have allowed older applicants to become Springfield cops… but would have lowered the mandatory retirement age for officers… has been voted down in the Springfield City Council.


Mayor Mike Houston cast the tiebreaking vote to defeat the ordinance after the police union objected to an amendment… backed by Houston… to require officers to retire at age 60.


The union wants to negotiate that change, and Houston agrees there should be talks on the issue.
