In a special called meeting of the Springfield City Council on Monday, February 27, the council voted to remain a part of the Municipal Road Aid Cooperative Program. City Clerk Jessica Hart said being a member of the program increases the availability of emergency funds for city streets.

The council also had the first reading of Bond Ordinance 2023-003 for the Springfield Water Company Interconnect Fund which will help pay for the connection to Danville Water to provide additional water supply to the county. The second reading of the ordinance is scheduled for the regular council meeting on March 14.
