Long Island City Approves GPS Fleet Tracking

December 26, 2013

The Glen Cove, N.Y., City Council has approved installing GPS transmitters on its 250 city vehicles to ensure they are used only for official business.

The council awarded a contract Monday for Movin' On Sounds and Security to install the vehicle tracking devices for $73,750, or up to $295 per vehicle, reports Newsday.

Mayor Ralph Suozzi had been pushing for the transmitters and tested one out with his city sport-utility vehicle. The system will track mileage and the need for routing preventative maintenance.
