In an effort to address Springfield’s crumbling infrastructure and the tens of millions of dollars necessary to address the issue, one aldermen is urging the city to join with the business community to form a working group.
Ward 6 Alderman Cory Jobe says not addressing the issue will keep future businesses from investing in the capital city.
But, unlike past committees that provided potential revenue solutions with little support, Jobe says this time there must be results.
In a press release, Jobe says the city and business community must work to educate citizens about the infrastructure needs.
The alderman plans to formally recommend the committee at Tuesday’s full city council meeting.
