Mayor Clamps Down On Contract Changes; Aldermen Demand Involvement In Decisions On Document Destruction

Springfield Mayor Mike Houston has signed an executive order to prevent a repeat of this week’s controversy in the police department. At issue is the agreement between the police chief and police union to move up the timeline for shredding internal affairs investigation documents. 


Houston’s order says any change to labor agreements must go through the city’s labor relations manager… and be signed by the mayor himself.


Meanwhile, three aldermen have filed an ordinance requiring city council approval before public records are destroyed.  That ordinance from Frank Edwards, Sam Cahnman and Joe McMenamin will be considered on emergency passage this week.
