Mayor Houston to Implement NAPA Contract After Inaction From Council

Inaction from the Springfield City Council has prompted Mayor Mike Houston to take action… to implement the city’s disputed contract with NAPA Auto Parts.


That contract had been in limbo because of questions about the legal basis for the no-bid deal. Houston had asked aldermen to reaffirm the $3.5 million deal with NAPA to provide parts for the consolidated city garage.


But aldermen left that ordinance in committee this week. Houston revealed live on 970 WMAY Thursday that he interprets that lack of action as a signal to him to handle the matter as he sees fit.


He says proceeding with the contract will put the garage consolidation on track for completion in September.
