Springfield CIty Council Tackles Hot Button Topics

By Springfield City Council standards it is a pretty light agenda.  

But they are likely to take final action on an ordinance that will make the city friendlier toward immigrants, a proposal that the mayor says he will veto.  

It is likely, based on preliminary votes to be veto proof.  

Councils will also try to override the mayor's veto of the re institution of the Police Commission.  

They and not the commissioner would do the hiring and firing under such a plan.

Plastic bags and pot are also on the agenda.  

And, as is past practice anything they opt not to do tonight, they will move to the next session rather than let it die.
