Instead of filling several vacant custodial positions the Largo City Commission decided at its Aug. 7 meeting to save about $30,700 and have Aetna Maintenance clean and maintain several city-owned buildings .
There were no layoffs. The city's custodial services currently has two full-time and four part-time vacancies, which is the equivalent of four full-time positions, according to a city report.
The custodial work is done after operating hours. The work will be monitored by city staff.
The custodial services contract was put out to bid and Aetna Maintenance was, "the most responsive proposer due to their experience, their references, and thereview of the proposal in totality. Also, Aetna Maintenance's pricing for custodial services was fair and competitive in comparison to other vendors that participated," according to a city report.
Aetna Maintenance will provide custodial services at:
- Public Works Complex
- McGough Nature Park
- Southwest Recreation Complex
- Largo Golf Course
- Environmental Services Complex
