The Fleet Services Department was established in 2000 and is responsible for all fleet asset matters. Fleet assets consist of vehicles and other equipment used by city agencies while providing services relating to the health, safety, and welfare of the citizens of Lynchburg. All major maintenance services are provided using city staff and facilities except for certain contracted services such as accident repairs, towing, parts management, and service on specialized equipment, as well as oil changes for light duty equipment.
Maintenance services are available from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Fuel is obtained from city-owned facilities using an automated fuel management system and is available around-the-clock. Used vehicles and equipment are sold to the public by auctions. Sealed-bid auctions are usually conducted by Fleet Services once a year. Online auctions are conducted by internet service providers that specialize in the sale of governmental property.
To acquire, maintain, account for, and dispose of fleet assets in the most cost-effective, safe, reliable, and efficient manner possible.
