Equipment / Fleet Maintenance

Mission

The Equipment Division's primary mission is to provide effective and economical equipment services for other City departments by maintaining vehicles and equipment and keeping a comprehensive parts and supply inventory.

Responsibilities

The Equipment Fund furnishes and maintains vehicles and major construction equipment. This includes motor vehicle inspections, scheduling preventive and regular maintenance, recording maintenance history, analyzing equipment costs, defining replacement cycles, and drafting specifications for the purchase of new equipment.

In addition, the Equipment Fund maintains a fuel supply station. As an internal service fund for the City, the Equipment Fund generates its revenue by billing other departments. This service is provided to all City departments. The Fire and Light and Power Departments purchase their own vehicles and receive maintenance from the Equipment Fund on a contract basis.
