Mayor Houston May Not Have Votes To Pass Infrastructure Plan


Springfield Mayor Mike Houston is revamping his proposal to pay for infrastructure projects but so far he still lacks the votes to pass it.

 

Houston had earlier proposed increases in sewer fees and the city's sales tax to pay for the multi-million-dollar plan but never introduced the ordinance because he didn't have the five votes needed for approval.

 

On 970 WMAY's "Jim Leach Show" today, Houston said he's now proposing just a one-percent sales tax hike, to be split among major road and sewer projects and routine maintenance. But the mayor says he's still at least one vote short.
