Ohio County Outsources Maintenance Contracts

May 15, 2014

Lake County, Ohio, commissioners have awarded contracts to two local dealers to provide maintenance service for fleet vehicles, following the sale of the county fleet garage.

Classic Chevrolet in Mentor will repair the county's general fleet vehicles, while Classic GMC in Painesville will repair sheriff's office vehicles, reports the News-Herald.

The county is in the process of selling its vehicle maintenance garage for $1.8 million. As part of the deal, the dealerships will provide a 25 percent parts discount to the county.

    Besides a number of unanswered questions here, it would seem a 25% discount on the surface is not a most advantageous arrangement for county. Perhaps something more in the range of 33 - 37% seems more palatable.

    Hard to comment other than to say this story is so deviod of information it is not worth printing. If we are looking for information to make us better fleet managers we will not find it here.
