EVANSVILLE, IN — Officials in Evansville, Indiana, are planning to take over the facilities maintenance of four buildings in an effort to reduce costs for the city, according to WFIE-TV.

According to the story, the buildings, currently overseen by convention center and stadium management company SMG World, include the Roberts Stadium, the C.K. Newsome Center, the Victory Theatre and the Mesker Amphitheatre.

Now the maintenance of the buildings will be under the charge of the Evansville Vanderburgh County Building Authority, and, according to Mayor Jonathan Weinzapfel, the city will use a team of seven workers as opposed to the current 11, resulting in savings for the city, the story stated.

Weinzapfel said: "That made a lot of sense to us as we continued to look for ways to be more effective and efficient and we believe at a minimum we should be able to save a little more than $300,000 but it will really be quite a bit more than that."

The transition from SMG World to the city will take place as of April 1, the story added.
