Brandywine District Switches Service Providers

NILES — Brandywine schools in southwest Michigan has changed custodial companies, according to the Niles Daily Star.

The new firm, D.M. Burr, already performs services in two Flint-area districts. At the board’s request, the district agreed to increase the hourly wage of its workers by $1, according to the Daily Star. The district will also increase the amount of time that the buildings are serviced, the Daily Star reported.

“We’re hearing rave review from classroom teachers,” director of business and finance Sue Furney told the Daily Star.

The agreement will still save the district $170,000 annually from its estimated in-house cost, according to Furney. The contract with D.M. Burr came within a few dollars of its previous contract.
