By the end of Fiscal Year 2020, the City will have 10 alternative-fuel vehicles out of nearly 300, representing 3.4% of the fleet. Upcoming purchases include six additional Rav 4 hybrids and 22 hybrid Police interceptors among others. In total, it is estimated by the end of Fiscal Year 2021, the City will have approximately 32 alternative-fuel vehicles, representing an estimated 10.9% of the fleet.
In support of the implementation of this policy, staff will examine the need for additional fleet efficiencies, including a motor-pool with the goal to create an innovative and interdepartmental approach to fleet management. These efforts will reduce the overall number of vehicles maintained, reduce redundant equipment significantly, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improve local air quality and preserve the long-term financial health of the organization.
