City's Fleet Services Department Named in 100 Best Fleets

Posted: 04/08/2020
In these uncertain and stressful times, we can still find moments to celebrate. Not only is our Fleet Services Department a critical part of keeping our City running right now, it has been named one of the 100 Best Fleets in the Americas!

Fleet maintains more than 1,500 pieces of equipment for numerous City departments, including Knoxville Police, Knoxville Fire, and Public Works. In 2019, Fleet received the Green Leadership Award from the Propane Education and Research Council (PERC). And in 2018, they established the Apprentice Mechanic program for disadvantaged students, which provides added capacity to Fleet at no cost to the City while benefitting the community and helping Fleet to overcome longstanding recruiting challenges. To date, three students have been hired by the City after completing the program.

We’re proud of Fleet’s accomplishments and the work they do for City staff and the people of Knoxville. Congratulations!
