It could take another year for Mayor Mike Houston to complete plans to consolidate some of the city’s garages and set up a new system for overseeing maintenance of the city’s vehicles.
That consolidation was recommended by the Maximus management study last year ans also a garage consolidation sutdy last month, but aldermen have wavered on whether it’s necessary to hire someone to serve as fleet manager.
The current plan calls for adding that position, at a salary of $90,000 a year.
Houston hopes to have the transition complete by the end of the second quarter of fiscal year 2014.
The mayor says that if the position is created by the city council the job will be publicly posted and current city employees could apply for the job.
