Alderman Jobe Corrects Reported Stance on Possible Residency Deal


An update on a story we told you about yesterday… contrary to claims by Springfield Alderman Joe McMenamin, another alderman says he is not pushing to allow new city hires to live in a handful of select villages adjacent to the city as part of a possible residency requirement.

 

McMenamin told 970 WMAY last week that Cory Jobe was one of two aldermen who had requested that city workers be allowed to live in Leland Grove, Jerome, Southern View or Grandview if a residency rule were reinstated for new hires.

 

But Jobe says that’s not correct.

 

He opposes a residency requirement, but says he told McMenamin that he might consider a rule that allowed city workers to live anywhere in Sangamon County.

 

McMenamin is still trying to line up votes to pass his proposal.
