City Vehicles and Equipment | Website
The Fleet Management Section of Public Works provides vehicles and equipment to City departments, including Police and Fire, so they will have properly functioning vehicles that are up-to-date and specific to their missions.
Pavement Management System | Website
One of the greatest challenges a City faces is maintaining, preserving and restoring its paved streets. Even though transportation/street maintenance is one of the few areas where cities receive regional and state monies (TransNet, Proposition 42, Proposition 1B), needs continue to exceed available funding. Most public agencies face financial constraints and must make choices about how to spend their limited transportation/maintenance dollars. Every few years, the City hires a consultant to update its Pavement Management System (PMS) in order to provide an objective assessment of pavement condition citywide. The state requires a PMS in order for a jurisdiction to be eligible for state funding. The PMS develops pavement preservation and rehabilitation strategies to maximize the use of public funds by applying the right treatment at the right time to extend the life of the pavement.
