Springfield Alderman Revives Dining Tax Idea To Fund Infrastructure Work


A Springfield alderman is reviving a controversial tax proposal… as the city tries to prepare for a potential infrastructure crisis. 

 

Even though the city’s Public Works Department is requesting two-percent less in its budget for next year compared to this year, Director Mark Mahoney warns that the city’s streets, sidewalks and sewers are in desperate need of repairs… and the potential price tag is growing. 

 

Alderman Gail Simpson is once again suggesting that the city impose a tax on dining out to generate revenues for a repair program… even though that idea went down in flames when it was brought up several years ago.
