DPW: School Custodians

City of Somerville FY21 Budget

Changes from FY20

The FY21 budget proposal includes a 10.8% increase to Personal Services. This is due to changes in salaries for union employees based on collective bargaining agreements. There are currently three vacancies in this division:


  • One Jr Building Custodian, reduced by 6 weeks for FY21.
  • One Jr Building Custodian, funded for 75% for FY21.
  • One Jr Building Custodian, funded for 50% for FY21.

These reductions in position funding are based on expected hire dates.


Ordinary Maintenance remains under contractual agreement and will reflect a 3% increase.


School custodians were instrumental and continue to be with deep cleaning and sanitizing of all City & School buildings.
