The next phase for consolidation of the city’s fleet of vehicles is in front of Aldermen this week. Springfield’s budget director says the two ordinances totaling nearly $300,000 will give the consolidation life blood as it will help manage in real-time the labor costs for the city’s fleet of over 800 vehicles and hundreds of other pieces of equipment.
The first major phase of consolidation was the purchase of a facility to house the equipment.
The software purchase is front of Aldermen this week.
The next phase is negotiating the labor contracts for the city to combine four operations into one.
