City of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County to Consolidate Fleet Maintenance Operations on July 1

July 02, 2008

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – After two years of preparation, the City of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County will be consolidating their fleet maintenance operations under the City’s management on July 1.

The consolidated maintenance operation will be managed by Business Support Services’ Equipment Management Division, which has been ranked the 4th best-managed fleet in the country (public or private) by Fleet Equipment Magazine. The fleet consolidation project is a cost-effective collaboration between the City and County that will save the County more than $700,000 over the first three years, with other cost saving initiatives being anticipated as time goes on.

Both the County Manager and City Manager approved the development of this consolidation in summer 2007. The implementation plan was completed and approved by both the Charlotte City Council and the County Board of Commissioners in April 2008. As part of the plan, all County employees impacted by the consolidation have been offered positions with the City, and this transition will provide them greater opportunity for advancement.

The consolidation also brings the addition of the County maintenance facility, which will ease capacity issues currently being experienced by the City.
