The City of El Paso’s General Services Department provides a broad array of services to other City departments. The department is headquartered at the Municipal Service Center, 1059 Lafayette Drive, El Paso, Texas. Currently, the department has one hundred thirty employees and oversees an operating budget in excess of $30,000,000. From maintaining over 180 buildings to repairing over 2,500 vehicles, General Services works hard to ensure that City operations continue without interruption and services can continuously be provided to our community.
Our department has made many improvements to improve our resiliency and reduce our energy use. During 2012, we reduced energy consumption in City facilities and achieved a measured cost avoidance totaling $1,668,016. General Services also relamped 7,200 streetlights from conventional lighting to LED, reducing energy consumption by 60% per light fixture. In addition, our Records Management division continues to mitigate risk by ensuring offsite storage and backing-up essential records for the continuity of operations during any disruption or disaster.
