Alma looks at custodial contracting for savings

ALMA — Alma schools issued a request for proposals to seek custodial services for the district. The move is being driven by a projected deficit of $400,000 for its upcoming fiscal year, according to the Mount Pleasant Morning Sun.

The district investigated contracting out this service three years ago. The process showed that privatization would provide savings, but the district opted to only contract out mowing, the Morning Sun reported.
