City of Willmar, Minn., to Reduce Fleet Size

February 27, 2012

WILLMAR, MN – The City of Willmar’s city council approved a recommendation to eliminate a total of 15 vehicles and pieces of equipment in the City’s fleet, according to City documents. The city council also approved the reassignment of 9 other vehicles for general use by City employees. The City will sell the 15 vehicles and pieces of equipment at its spring 2012 auction.

Eliminating, and reassigning, these vehicles and pieces of equipment will save the City $281,652 in 2012 plus an estimated savings of $1,400 in insurance and licensing costs.

These decisions came from a Vehicle/Equipment Committee, which consisted of the City’s Fire Chief, Police Chief, Finance Director, and Public Works Director. The committee’s goal was to make unbiased decisions regarding the number of vehicles and pieces of equipment in use and determine the appropriate number for each City department.
