Cobb County, Georgia, officials have cut the ribbon on the new 35,000-square-foot fleet management facility. The $5 million building, funded through the 2016 Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax, will provide maintenance service for county vehicles and off-road equipment. There are 18 service bays, a parts department, a service write-up area, and fleet administrative spaces. It was designed to be an energy-efficient repair facility for both traditional and alternative fuel vehicles.
Al Curtis, director of fleet management for the county, explained the new facility would allow the fleet operation to be more efficient.
“What the technicians normally have to do is they have to go to the parts room and request parts. Now they can request them over a secured network. It makes us a lot more efficient. It keeps the technicians at the jobsite and at their terminals doing work, where they need to be,” he explained.
