SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WAND) - Springfield leaders made no decision Tuesday night on a limit to the mayor's spending authority after he vetoed the effort earlier this week.
WTAX Radio reports there was no discussion on the issue Tuesday night. Issues stemmed from council members becoming upset with Mayor Jim Langfelder's spending decisions. They voted 6-4 in April to limit his power to spend without council approval from $50,000 to $10,000.
Langfelder told WAND News Tuesday Springfield has plenty of opportunity to spend money on people and programs in need.
To override the mayor's veto in the future, council members need 7 votes in favor. The next Springfield city council meeting is set for Tuesday, May 18.
