Executive Director Joshua Schimmel Attends Second White House Infrastructure Summit

In June, Springfield Water and Sewer Commission Executive Director Joshua Schimmel attended a bi-partisan White House summit focused on infrastructure issues. Schimmel was invited along with Springfield DPW Director Chris Cignoli and a bi-partisan group of governors, mayors, and other officials to discuss ways the federal government can assist with improving the nation’s infrastructure at the state and local levels. Schimmel identified placing time limits on permit review periods as an achievable way to reduce the time and costs associated with infrastructure construction projects.

In August, Schimmel and Cignoli were again invited to the White House to provide feedback on the administration’s planned approach to stimulating infrastructure investment.
