MONTVILLE, NJ — Montvill Schools officials have decided to outsource their custodians to help the district meet a township-mandated budget cut, according to The Star-Ledger.
The school board agreed to privatize custodial services, which would provide nearly half of the $984,000 cut demanded by the Montville committee for the 2010-11 school budget, the article state.
"It''s sad, but we''re not alone in looking at the privatization of custodial staff," Business Administrator Jim Tevis told parents at the school board meeting.
The $984,000 cut was decided by the township after voters rejected the $68.6 million budget last month. The defeat sent the budget to the township committee, which determined how much should be taken out of the spending plan, the article noted.
