Reader's view: Keep Johnson Controls out of Hermantown schools project

Duluth News Tribune

Everyone I’ve talked to about it agrees something should be done about Hermantown’s school buildings, especially the middle school. The biggest problem in getting something done is the possibility of Johnson Controls being involved in the construction management of the project.

Johnson Controls is an unnecessary layer of cost over the project and, given its record of achievement in this area, it’s amazing to many it is involved in the planning aspect of this task.

If a referendum was placed before the city of Hermantown, it would be much easier to pass if Johnson Controls was not involved.
