Three municipalities across the United States have entered into agreements with Enterprise Fleet Management to enhance their vehicle management programs. The partnerships with the cities of Bunnell, Florida; Hearne, Texas; and Mexia, Texas, will enable them to improve fleet performance, upgrade aging fleets and reduce ownership costs.
As part of its agreement with the City of Bunnell, Enterprise will supply 18 new vehicles – from police cruisers and medium-duty crane trucks to SUVs and half-ton pickup trucks. The partnership, which is projected to save the City of Bunnell more than $90,000 over the next eight years, has the potential to increase to 34 vehicles.
“Prior to partnering with Enterprise Fleet Management, we had an aging fleet and high operating costs,” said Dr. Alvin B. Jackson Jr., City Manager, City of Bunnell. “Through our partnership, we’re confident that we’ll have the ability to both improve our fleet and meet the needs of our community at a reduced cost.”
The City of Hearne and City of Mexia are also partnering with Enterprise Fleet Management to better meet their fleet needs with five and seven new vehicles, respectively. The Hearne program has the potential to grow to 30 vehicles, while the Mexia partnership has a potential of up to 36 vehicles.
“The Mexia City Council realized the city could benefit from working with a professional fleet management provider to manage our vehicles,” said Eric Garretty, City Manager, City of Mexia. “The mayor and council members are excited to partner with Enterprise Fleet Management, and we look forward to exploring other opportunities for cost savings and efficiency.”
In addition to helping its customers achieve significant cost savings as a result of improved fuel efficiency and decreased maintenance needs, Enterprise Fleet Management gives local government agencies the ability to reallocate resources in order to focus on their core work of serving their communities.
“Working with Enterprise Fleet Management allows us to focus on elevating our community by assigning financial resources we previously used for fleet management to areas of greater impact for our residents,” said John Naron, City Manager, City of Hearne.
