ROCKY HILL, CT — About 23 school custodians work for the town, but they may soon become school employees, according to the Hartford Courant.

According to the article, for about 16 years, town workers have maintained the town''s five schools: Before 1993, the board was responsible for maintenance.

"Having the board supervise the custodians will improve accountability and allow for proper oversight," MacDonald added.
