Maintenance Division Mission Statement:
The Fleet Services Maintenance Division mission is to respond to the City's fleet needs for vehicle and equipment services using creativity, flexibility, training depth, and technical expertise in performing simple or complex analysis, with total focus on program analysis, cost tracking, customer satisfaction, and quality workmanship.
Walter Ederle is the Fleet Maintenance Manager and is responsible for overseeing all shops and ensuring compliance with City Policy, as well as State and Federal Regulations. Mr. Ederle can be reached via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone at (501) 918-4208.
Fleet Maintenance Central Facility:
Fleet Services Central Maintenance Facility is located on J.E. Davis Drive in Little Rock. The hours of operation are 7:00 AM until 6:00 PM, Monday through Friday, and closed on major holidays. This facility houses the fire shop, tire shop, heavy-duty truck shop, light-duty sedan shop, small engine shop, welding shop and a paint and body shop.
Along with the major duties performed at the Central Facility on J.E. Davis Drive, are the additional responsibilities of vehicle up fitting. Vehicle up fitting is the technical function of turning a newly acquired vehicle into a service ready Police or Fire Department unit. This is an extensive service function that includes installing and programming the video camera and computer systems, installing Global Positioning Systems (GPS) and prisoner containment equipment. This essential and critical function is one of the hallmarks of quality service, which previously could only be performed by outside contracted specialty agencies at a much greater expense to the City. Such achievements are made possible through the Fleet Services Department's commitment for continuing quality services through innovation and efficiency.
Mike McDonald and Mike Williams are the Service Coordinators for this facility. They can be reached via e-mail at email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone at (501) 918-4240.
Fleet Services has a satellite maintenance facility located at the City Landfill. This on-site Fleet Services operation provides service solely to the Public Works Solid Waste Division's fleet of on and off-road vehicles. The Solid Waste Division fleet consists of over 160 units, including an assortment of large earthmovers (dozers, excavators, articulating dump trucks) as well as the City's sanitation units. All sanitation units are serviced at the Landfill maintenance facility. This facility operates on a five (5)-day and often six (6)-day per week schedule, with eight (8) Automotive Technicians, one (1) Service Coordinator and one (1) Parts Clerk. Facility hours are 6:00 AM to 6:00 PM.
AJ James is the Service Coordinator for the facility and can be reached via e-mail at email@example.com, or by phone at (501) 888-5081.
