The Cherokee County, Georgia, Fleet Management Department has a new facility to service larger county vehicles, including the fleet of fire apparatuses.

On April 1, the county took possession of the new building located behind the existing fleet office. Prior to the expansion, the county’s team of mechanics were unable to lift the ladder trucks completely to do the necessary work. The new building is 4,760 square feet with 33-foot ceilings, allowing the ladders on the trucks to be fully extended while the body is lifted. The new space also allows other larger vehicles and equipment to be maintained by fleet staff.

“The new facility will allow for the techs to efficiently maintain the county vehicles with the additional space,” said Fleet Manager Tony Bryant. “The new building gives fleet the space and diversity to fix any vehicle the county has. We are excited to have the additional building to our facility and want to thank everyone who had a part in accomplishing the construction of this building.”

The $708,000 project was completed by Crown Service Contractors.
