Houston: More Infrastructure Funding Will Be Needed In Springfield

Springfield Mayor Mike Houston says the city’s current three-year program to make major improvements to its infrastructure won’t be enough. 


Houston says there will still be a need for a coordinated program… and a stable funding source… to pay for maintenance and upkeep of the repairs that are currently being made.  Houston had originally proposed an additional half-percent sales tax increase to pay for long-range maintenance, but that idea was rejected.


Appearing live on 970 WMAY’s “Jim Leach Show,” the mayor said the need to pay for maintenance isn’t going away… but he expects it won’t be addressed until after next year’s city elections.
