Cape May County Outsources Heavy Equipment Maintenance

February 04, 2011

CAPE MAY COURT HOUSE, NJ - The Cape May County (N.J.) Board of Chosen Freeholders approved Jan. 11 a resolution to authorize shared services agreements with three nearby municipalities for heavy equipment fleet maintenance, according to County officials.

The Borough of Avalon will take over maintenance of 113 units, the Township of Upper 42 units, and the Township of Lower 49 units. The contracts include preventive maintenance, yearly inspection, emergency road service, and a stand-by mechanic. They are effective March 25 for a one-year term, extendable for an additional six years.

The contracts cite a "new 2 percent state mandated budget cap" as one reason for the shared services agreements.
