DETROIT - Government Fleet had the opportunity to sit down with several prominent public sector fleet professionals during an intimate roundtable discussion April 25 in Detroit and pick their brains on the latest budget issues affecting fleets.

The roundtable discussion was prompted by fleet managers being asked to "do more with less," which has for many fleet managers, resulted in "doing less with less."

GF Senior Editor Lauren Fletcher facilitated the discussion between John Alley, CAFM, deputy director for the City of San Diego and winner of the 2010 Public Sector Fleet Manager of the Year award; Larry Campbell, CPFP, director of fleet management for the City of Fort Wayne and finalist for 2010 Public Sector Fleet Manager of the Year; and Mark Bellamy, CAFM, fleet manager for York County and 2009 Public Sector Fleet Manager of the Year nominee.

Issues discussed included productivity with reduced staff and take-home vehicles.

More details on the discussion will be featured in an upcoming GF article.
