St. Francis - A Minneapolis firm that provides crossing guards to a half-dozen Milwaukee suburbs is proposing to provide crossing guards for St. Francis, saying the city could save money and time.
The proposal is being made by Twin City Security, which serves Shorewood, Wauwatosa, West Milwaukee and other communities, St. Francis City Administrator Ralph Voltner said.
Voltner said it's not clear that hiring the firm would save money, given that the firm's employees earn a higher hourly pay than city employees who work as crossing guards. But it's possible the city could save money and time in terms of recruiting and managing crossing guards, he said.
The proposal will be presented tonight to the Common Council.
