The City of Prosser, Wash., has established its first ever fleet replacement program.

“These newly established replacement reserve funds will add long-term stability to the ebbs-and-flows of year-over-year budgeting and ensure that our city’s fleet is well-maintained and a safe resource to provide our services to the public,” City Administrator Dave Stockdale wrote in the city’s 2017 proposed budget.

The program is expected to be fully funded over four years, and the city is now making 125% yearly payments over the next four years to “catch up” with the program, according to Stockdale.

The program helps the city achieve one of its five goals set by City Council, as it is expected to provide financial sustainability.

The city also plans to purchase a fleet management software system. This would help it achieve another of its goals, for operational excellence and communication.
