Sheriff Wins Battle Against County Over Vehicle Maintenance Procedures

May 3, 2006

A Superior Court judge has ruled that Georgia’s Fayette County Sheriff’s Department will no longer have to go through the county government for conducting vehicle maintenance or purchasing items, according to TheCitizen.com. The legal victory for the sheriff’s department was a blow for the Fayette County Board of Commissioners, which had wanted the department to use its fleet management staff to conduct maintenance on its vehicle fleet. The board also argued that the department should use the county’s purchasing system instead of its own. During the proceedings, several employees of the sheriff’s department told the judge that the county’s computerized purchasing system has significantly increased their workload.Prior to the ruling, sheriff’s officials had been using the purchasing system used by all other county government departments since April 4 because of a temporary court order. The temporary order also required them to use the county’s fleet maintenance shop for maintenance on all vehicles.
