Osceola County Fleet Management is one of the top government fleets in the country, according to Government Fleet magazine.
Osceola County Fleet Management was named 66th among the top 100 Best Fleets, and places Osceola above the cities of Orlando, Chicago and Boston, as well as the New York Police Department.
“This is a major accomplishment for our Public Works department when you think of the competitors vying for this recognition. It’s good to measure yourself among your peers and to be counted among the best,” said Commission Chairwoman Cheryl Grieb. “I know the County’s fleet team works tirelessly every day to make sure our equipment is ready for the road. And that readiness is crucial to our ability to serve the citizens of Osceola County.”
Osceola County Fleet Management provides vehicle and equipment repairs, fleet acquisition and disposal. Fleet also operates and maintains the countywide vehicle refueling system.
The evaluation standards are divided into several key categories: Fleet Composition, Fuel & Emissions, Policy & Planning, Fleet Utilization, Education, Executive & Employee Involvement and supporting programs including applying for grants and maintenance facility improvements.
The Government Green Fleet Award is open to all Federal, State, and Local Government fleets.
