The Springfield City Council is requesting that Mayor Domenic Sarno and the city’s financial team address what they refer to as “injustices” that resulted in the US’s first ever rescue plan granting of funding.
“We still have around $47 million that has not been taxed, which means it has not yet been committed to a programme or spent. We must ensure that the remaining money we have benefit people who have been disproportionately affected by COVID, according to Tracye Whitfield, a Springfield City Councilwoman.
Councilors Hurst, Whitfield, and Govan claim that there were major racial, gender, and regional discrepancies in the ARPA award amounts in a report supplied to 22News.
The council members think that the board failed to do its job when it comes to the money that corporations got and that the money was not distributed fairly.
