NEW ALBANY —
Board president D.J. Hines said while hiring a company to handle custodial operations may not be popular, he thinks it’s the right move for the district.
“I don’t have a problem with outsourcing,” Hines said. “I think it’s a way to gain efficiencies and a way to maintain the focus of the organization.”
The district will begin its transition from Sodexo to FMS on Tuesday. Sodexo’s contract ends May 31 with FMS’s contract beginning the following day.
