The Fleet Division of the Public Works Department maintains vehicles and equipment for all departments. It also manages the reserve fund which obtains replacement vehicles and equipment as needed.
The garage staff work out of the city service center, performing repair and maintenance on over 160 city-owned vehicles and miscellaneous equipment. Staff are responsible for managing all fleet costs including fuel, insurance, replacement parts, tires, preventive maintenance and repairs.
The fleet staff ensure an appropriate monthly depreciation fee is collected on each department vehicle and high-level equipment to ensure that over the projected life of the item funds are collected for replacement. Staff also facilitate replacement once a decision is made after reviewing age, maintenance costs and reliability of each vehicle.
