Residency Referendum for Future Springfield Workers Passes, Alderman Mulls Next Step


Springfield voters have given strong support to an advisory referendum asking if the city should reinstate a residency requirement for future City Hall employees.

 

The non-binding question passed 59- to 41-percent.

 

But for a residency rule to be imposed, it still must get approval of a majority of the City Council, and withstand a possible veto from Mayor Mike Houston.

 

Alderman Joe McMenamin, a residency supporter, says he will take his time before bringing the issue back up, and suggests he may even wait until after the next mayor and city council election, in 2015.
