Yolo-Solano AQMD Approves Grants for Fleet Clean Air Projects

July 02, 2012

DAVIS, CA – The Yolo-Solano Air Quality Management District (AQMD) approved more than $300,000 in grants for 12 projects, a number of which allow for retrofitting of fleet vehicles, or the purchase of new vehicles, for various municipalities in northern California. The Yolo-Solano AQMD board of directors consists of local elected officials within the municipalities in the district. Out of the $321,200 in funds awarded, $244,000 went to five projects in Solano County, and $77,200 for seven projects in Yolo County.

The Yolo County Flood Control and Water Conservation District will replace a 1985 model-year heavy-duty truck with a new model. The Yolo County Department of Agriculture will receive $13,600 to purchase a diesel emission filter on its weights and measures truck. The City of Winters will receive $8,801 to replace a low-speed electric vehicle with a newer one.

Solano County will receive $100,000 for a new motor grader to replace its 20-year-old model. The City of Dixon will receive $36,000 replace a diesel wide-area mower with a newer, lower emissions model. Lastly, out of the fleet-related projects, the City of Rio Vista will receive $28,000 to replace a 1981 converted fire rescue truck with a low-emission, clean diesel utility vehicle to be used by the Public Works Department.

Other non-fleet projects funded by the AQMD will pay for after-school education programs and to fund the construction of a 1-mile segment of the final phase of the Vacaville-Dixon Bikeway.
