Ordinance To Halt File Destruction Fails Emergency Passage


A group of Springfield aldermen have fallen one vote short of the number needed for an emergency ordinance that would prohibit the destruction of any city records without City Council authorization.

 

Seven aldermen supported the measure… but eight votes were needed for emergency passage.

 

The proposal was in reaction to the agreement between Police Chief Robert Williams and the police union that led to the accelerated destruction of some internal affairs files.

 

The ordinance will come up for a vote again in two weeks… when only a simple majority will be needed for approval.
