Municipal Services Honors Fleet Maintenance During National Public Works Week

Public Works Fleet Award 2017

While receiving a proclamation in recognition of National Public Works Week, the City of Boca Raton’s Municipal Services Director, Dan Grippo, honored the Fleet Maintenance Division for being ranked in the Best 100 Fleets in the Americas.

There are over 38,000 public fleets in North America alone, and thousands more in South America. The City of Boca Raton, which has over 1,000 vehicles and pieces of heavy equipment in its fleet, was ranked number 86. Fleet Superintendant, Tony Remige, accepted the award on behalf of his team of 14. 

“Our mechanics repair and maintain light trucks, garbage trucks, trailers, bucket trucks, police cars and vehicles- you name it. It averages out to about 250 vehicles per technician, so we are always busy,” said Remige.

The criterion for the Best Government Fleet award includes accountability, technology, collaboration, efficient turnaround, staff development and doing it right the first time.

“When our residents see City of Boca Raton vehicles around town, we want them to know that we are working very hard behind the scenes not only to provide world class services, but to keep our equipment and vehicles in the best condition possible,” added Grippo. “Our team needs the best tools to do their best work and the fleet division helps make that happen.  We’re very proud of their commitment to excellence.”

National Public Works Week recognizes the vital role that public works plays in providing, maintaining and improving structures and services that assure the quality of life in our cities.  From streets, roads, and bridges to sanitation and clean water, public works keep us healthy and allow our communities to grow and prosper.
