Springfield Still Mulling Tax Hikes

Time is growing shorter and Springfield's mayor and aldermen are not in agreement yet on whether tax hikes are needed to close a budget shortfall.  Mayor Jim Langfelder told a breakfast crowd this morning that further cuts in expenses would have to come from personnel and city services.  He's proposing four tax increases, but several aldermen say they'll propose other ideas for spending cuts and new revenue at their February seventh meeting.  The new budget year begins March first.
