Alderman Edwards Wants Comparison To Other Cities' Spending


A Springfield alderman wants a detailed comparison of City Hall spending here compared to other similar Illinois citie to see if there are alternatives to raising the sales tax to pay for infrastructure. But Alderman Frank Edwards doesn’t see that happening before aldermen finalize a budget for the fiscal year that starts March 1st.

 

Appearing live on 970 WMAY, Edwards asserted that police, fire and other city departments are overspending compared to cities like Bloomington-Normal and Decatur. He says if some of Springfield’s spending can be reduced, that could free up money for infrastructure without requiring a sales tax hike, which Edwards opposes.
