Castle Rock Public Works Director Wants ‘Green Fleet' Policy

July 25, 2007

CASTLE ROCK, CO – Castle Rock Public Works Director Bob Goebel announced June 15 that his department wants the town to develop a policy that would mandate replacement of Castle Rock’s petroleum-powered vehicles with flex-fuel, hybrid, and bio-diesel powered cars and trucks, according to the Web site denver.yourhub.com.

Goebel’s memorandum to Town Manager Mark Stevens said that Fleet Manager Todd Richardson is developing a five-year “Green Fleet” policy. The motivation behind the initiative, said Goebel, is to “get us to a fleet that has a lower operating cost, [is] more fuel efficient, and [is] better for the environment.”

Goebel wrote that his department plans to research similar programs in place in other cities and towns and examine the fuel efficiency gains and cost savings such a policy might produce. He indicated that the Public Works Department would like to have the policy approved by Town Council and in place by the end of this year.
