Muskegon Public privatizing custodial services

MUSKEGON, Mich. (WOOD) — Muskegon Public Schools is privatizing its custodial services.

The district is contracting with a private company called Enviro-Clean, according to Superintendent Jon Felske. The school district expects to save about $750,000 per year by making the switch.

Thirty-eight district workers will be laid off. 34 are eligible for retirement.

All of the workers laid off are eligible to apply with Enviro-Clean. Felske said about half have already interviewed.

Of the 10 school districts in Muskegon County, eight — including Muskegon Public — have privatized custodial work, according to Felske.
