Money Saving Suggestions

Last year, FWCS began taking suggestions from employees on ways to save money in the district. That later expanded to taking suggestions from the entire community.

Below are the suggestions we received, separated by whether we used them or not and explanations for each. Another category includes suggestions we are still considering.

FWCS appreciates all the suggestions and thanks those who took the time to submit them.
