SANFORD–Following the regular meeting of Lee County Commissioners Monday afternoon, the board held a public hearing to allow for comment prior to adopting a budget for the new fiscal year. Superintendent Jeff Moss told the board that he is not willing to privatize custodial work at the schools because custodians would have to take a 25 cent pay cut. The schools get about $15.84 million of the $63 million proposed budget in current expenses. The proposed funding is about the same as it was last year. The schools’ asked for more. When questioned by Commissioner Jim Womack on why he is not willing to consider outsourcing custodial work, Moss responded that a pay cut would hurt custodians who have to feed and clothe their children.
