Cleaning services is responsible for janitorial needs within all City buildings with the exception of Germantown Athletic Club, The Great Hall & Conference Center and Fire Station 4.
Fleet Services provides scheduled maintenance along with diverse repairs to all City fleet equipment and vehicles. In the event that the scope of repairs or replacements is beyond the means of the automotive technical staff, outsourcing needed services occurs to maintain service excellence for all customers. In addition to daily operations, Fleet Services is responsible for recommendations along with justifications to replace fleet equipment and fleet vehicles through the Infrastructure Replacement Program. As equipment or vehicles are replaced, Fleet Services sells decommissioned equipment and vehicles through an approved government agency. The Fleet Services Manager works closely with the Procurement Director to ensure that all documents are complete and funds are collected for each sale.
Project Management consists of the Capital Improvements Program (CIP) and Infrastructure Replacement Program (IRP). The CIP Manager ensures that all fiscal year funding request for CIP and IRP projects have documentation from the requesting department during the fiscal year budget process. Projects approved for funding are scheduled by priority. The priority schedule is reviewed and approved by the City Administrator prior to any project activity. Once projects go through the bid process, the CIP Manager serves as liaison and closely monitors the progress and budget for each project in addition to providing weekly project updates.
