Mayor Houston Says City Comes First In Bidding Process

He vetoed an attempt to give county businesses the same advantage as city businesses in bidding on city contracts… but Springfield Mayor Mike Houston says he is on board with giving a smaller preference to companies located in the county.


Houston is in favor of a new ordinance put forward by Alderman Sam Cahnman… that would allow businesses located in Sangamon County, but outside the Springfield city limits… to get a city contract if they are within three-percent of the low bid. City businesses currently get five-percent leeway.


Appearing live on 970 WMAY’s “Ray Lytle Show,” Houston says it’s important to support county businesses… but city companies should still come first.
