The West Central School Board approved a change in the facility rental agreement. Superintendent Charles Mellon said the fee will include the services of the custodian and cafeteria personnel and one additional charge.
“That change was to include the rental fee which includes the employer share of FICA that will be paid for by the renter,” said Mellon. “We had always paid for that as a corporation, but we’re trying to find different ways to cut back a little bit and save a little money.”
The board also heard a report from Elementary Principal Dan Zylstra who has been working with Four County Counseling. They are working together to provide a client meeting space for their case workers at the West Central Elementary School.
“We just thought that would be bringing the service to our families in the community. Currently, they have to call Logansport to make an arrangement to meet in Winamac so we thought all phone calls could be made locally as well as the meeting place,” said Mellon.
