Aldermen Approve Sales Tax and Sewer Fee Increase for Infrastructure

Springfield aldermen have approved a higher sales tax and increased sewer fees in an effort to address the city’s major infrastructure needs for years to come.


On a 6-3 vote, the City Council approved a one-half-percent sales tax increase that will finance bonds for major street and sidewalk projects across the city.


Two additional smaller sales tax hikes, including one to fund regular ongoing maintenance, were voted down.


The sewer fee increase… which will generate dollars for sewer maintenance… passed when Mayor Mike Houston cast the sixth and deciding vote in favor.
