Avondale Adopts Privatization

AVONDALE — The Avondale Public School district contracted with Enviro-Clean to provide custodial service, a decision that is expected to save the district $450,000 in the first year alone and $3 million over the next five years, according to the Rochester Eccentric.

Custodians from Enviro-Clean are expected to earn between $9 and $11 per hour, while Avondale’s employees had been earning an average of $18 an hour, the Rochester Eccentric reported.

This contract was counted in the Mackinac Center’s 2006 summer privatization survey.
