Timberlane considering changes to school food services
Last week, Superintendent Earl Metzler asked the Timberlane School Board to consider a contract renewal for Whitsons.
“The key here is that without (Whitsons) we’d have to hire a manager, so there would be costs associated with it,” said Metzler.
“We’ve done self operation in the past, and we were always a self-supporting program,” said Pollard Elementary School cafeteria manager Deb Waters. “We didn’t get money from the district and the program ran very smoothly without a management company.”
Metzler noted that while there have been issues, Whitsons has always been willing to work with the district whenever issues have been raised.
Even with a possible extension, School Board member Robert Collins said he wasn’t comfortable with the district changing the food services program on short notice and suggested the district renew the Whitsons contract for one year and explore the benefits of going to a self-operated system for the 2015-16 school year.
