The Fleet Division provides the best service and staff by partnering with departments and vendors to effectively monitor and ensure the most cost effective repair and replacement of vehicles and equipment.
Fleet Operations Division provides acquisition, disposal, preventative maintenance, and major and minor repairs for the City’s motor vehicle fleet and equipment. The division performs these functions on more than 400 vehicles each year that range from lawn mowers to police vehicles, and from fire apparatus to large earth moving equipment.
The City’s departments pay for direct labor and overhead costs based on time spent to service their equipment annually. Departments also pay an annual fee that is set aside to provide funding for subsequent replacement of vehicles.
In 2008, a new fueling site was added at the City’s Maintenance Facility that meets the Environmental Protection Agency’s requirements for spill control currently required by users of above ground fueling and oil retention sites. This brings the total number of fueling sites for City vehicles to four which store and dispense 12,000 gallons of diesel fuel and 6,000 gallons of unleaded fuel at one time and more than 280,000 gallons per year combined.
The Department is also responsible for a lot of the progress the City has made in the reduction of vehicle emissions. Since 2007 the City has replaced 18 large diesel vehicles with new ultra low emissions vehicles, dramatically reducing the amount of nitrogen oxide output. When operating these ultra low emission vehicles on high ozone alert days the air exhausted is actually cleaner than what is taken in.

In 2007 the City implemented a anti-idling policy to help reduce cost and lower the amount of carbon output (See the anti-idling policy below.)
