Review of Operations Finds County Fleet Leaking Money

January 18, 2006

A three-month review of Gwinnett County, Georgia’s fleet management operations found that its cars are too old, the managers too many and the county too slow to get vehicles into the shop for oil changes, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.Gwinnett’s fleet, which includes more than 2,300 vehicles including executive sedans and fire engines, is worth roughly $71 million.Additional findings of the review include, the need for the county to possibly implement a driving school to help cut down on the number of accidents; that the fleet could possibly have too many cars, mechanics and supervisors/managers; and that vehicles in Gwinnett’s fleet had exceeded the amount of time they should be in service despite having $20 million set aside to purchase new vehicles.Despite the issues uncovered, the reviewing consultant gave Gwinnett’s fleet division a “solid B” when compared with other government fleet operations that have been evaluated.
