April 12, 2010

AUBURNDALE, FL - Polk County Fleet Management will take over control of the City of Auburndale's fleet maintenance operation at the end of June, according to Bob Stanton, director of Polk County Fleet Management.

Stanton said the Auburndale City Commission approved the County's Memorandum of Understanding April 5 and is scheduled for Board approval on April 21. Auburndale's "hand-off" to Polk County will be June 28, according to Stanton.

Polk County Fleet Maintenance will pay the salaries and benefits of the five current employees, in addition to repair costs on all 227 city-owned vehicles.

Auburndale officials estimated they will spend about $640,800 this fiscal year on fleet maintenance. Polk County Fleet Maintenance has indicated they will charge Auburndale about $315,400 next year.

In October, Polk County Fleet Maintenance assumed control of Lake Wales' operation.

Polk County ranked #13 in the 100 Best Fleets program in 2009.
