City of Calabassas Loses Money by Hiring LSSI

helling_libraryI wrote an email today to Matt Sylvain, assistant librarian at the Claire T. Carney Library at UMass Dartmouth, asking him whether he was aware of any town that had actually saved money by hiring LSSI, and here’s his reply:

“I’m not aware of such a community, but I haven’t looked at (or have had access to) all the data.

Ward’s article notes that in Calabasas, the community did initially see savings. However, the savings were short lived, and the increased cost of the LSSI run system soon outpaced the increase in services.”
