Salt Lake County Looking to Change Fleet Replacement Cycle

July 13, 2005

SALT LAKE COUNTY, UT – Salt Lake County’s fleet had been reselling cars an average of 18 months after purchase. Salt Lake County officials, however, are looking to get more use out of their fleet before replacing the unit, according to the Associated Press. Mayor Peter Corroon pointed to the high cost of rapidly rotating the fleet as motivation to change. He noted that Salt Lake County was turning into a car dealership rather than saving money because of low maintenance on newer vehicles, according to the Associated Press. By replacing the vehicles inside of three years, running the county’s auto sales became expensive. The cost of preparing the used cars for sale and adequately equipping the newer vehicles ran the price tag of the operation up, as well. Corroon and other department heads met with consultants to review a possible fix to the system. Corroon said he will likely push to extend the life of county vehicles as part of a fleet report in July, according to the Associated Press.
