In a recent development focused on improving operational efficiency, Franklin County, Missouri, has entered into agreements with Enterprise Fleet Management. These agreements not only cover the leasing of vehicles but also the sale of the county's used vehicles. The county commissioners approved these agreements on October 24, granting Enterprise the responsibility of managing the sale of used vehicles through auctions and other locations.
As outlined in the agreement, Franklin County will pay Enterprise a service charge for each vehicle sold. This charge, which includes administrative costs and towing fees, is capped at $400. The primary objective of these agreements is to simplify the process of disposing of older vehicles while ensuring a fair and transparent transaction.
The initial master lease agreement with Enterprise was approved by county commissioners at a Sept. 7 meeting where, according to emissourian.com, officials were told the leasing program could save the county $850,000 over the course of 10 years compared to the county managing the replacement of its own vehicles, which it had been doing.
