The district did make changes to the system to operate it in a more fiscally responsible manner.  Transportation is operating in a 3-tier system to save on costs.  Transportation will continue to use consolidated stops also to save on time and expenditures.  The district has a contract with Petermann for the management of the department and the leasing of a majority of the buses.  Over the summer, the district also made a change in its contract with Petermann so that Petermann is now the employer of all of the transportation staff.  Milford drivers are now Petermann employees.  A list of "Frequently Asked Questions" is available by clicking on "Petermann Contract" on the right column for you to download to review the cost saving reasons the district decided to make this change.
