GSD Fleet Division

 
Mission Statement

FUNCTION GOALS: Our mission is to provide fuel, repair parts, and offer maintenance support for the approximately 2485 vehicles in the City fleet. We also provide fleet management for all customer departments and administer the City's motor pool program.

The Fleet Division oversees the City fleet, providing maintenance and repair to over 2700 vehicles. This division is headquartered at the Municipal Service Center, 1059 Lafayette Drive, El Paso, Texas. In addition to providing a preventative maintenance program, the department prepares specifications to purchase all automotive equipment, manages the purchase, storing and distribution of fuels and automotive parts, and develops vehicle utilization and replacement policies. Our technicians inspect all of the taxi and limousine service providers within the City on a yearly basis. In addition, they assist with Police Department investigations involving motor vehicle accidents in order to ascertain the cause of the incident. The responsibility of registration and titling of vehicles also lies within the department.

The Fleet Division is an internal service department, billing other city departments for services provided. Repair facilities are located throughout the city to allow for convenient customer service and are staffed to provide full maintenance and repairs to the vehicles and equipment assigned to that location. Field mechanics provide maintenance and repair services to the Zoo, two landfills, park facilities and other remote sites, as well as responding to units broken down in the field.
