Alderman McMenamin's Plan Raises Sewer Fee For Sewer Upkeep


A Springfield alderman is proposing an increase in sewer fees… but a smaller one that originally proposed by Mayor Mike Houston… as a way to pay for some of the city’s infrastructure needs.

 

Alderman Joe McMenamin’s proposal would raise monthly sewer fees by about a third, an increase of more than $3 per month.

 

McMenamin says the money would be kept in a special sewer fund that could only be used for sewer projects.

 

Some aldermen had already rejected Houston’s plan to double sewer fees over four years.

 

Houston is now touting a sales tax hike to pay for sewer and road projects.
