Springfield Mayor: More Infrastructure Funding Needed


Springfield has just embarked on a major three-year infrastructure program… but Mayor Mike Houston says that alone won’t be enough.

 

Houston says the city needs to commit to an ongoing program of infrastructure maintenance after the three-year program is done… and must find a dedicated source of revenue to pay for it.

 

Houston had originally proposed an additional half-percent sales tax for maintenance… on top of the half-percent increase that took effect this year to finance the bonds for the current work.

 

The mayor says if the city doesn’t pay for upkeep now, it will have to pay even more later… but he predicts the issue won’t be addressed until after next year’s city elections.
