Mayor reins in chief

Houston limits power to change contracts

Springfield Mayor Mike Houston on Friday issued an order barring any changes to union contracts without his approval.

The order came one week after more than 70 internal affairs files were destroyed after police chief Rob Williams agreed to reduce the retention period for such files from five years to four, a move that has been criticized by several city council members.

For backstory, see "Ready, set, shred."
