City of Rochester
(Tuesday, June 25, 2013) – Mayor Thomas S. Richards announced today that Government Fleet magazine has named Rochester’s fleet of more than 1,300 City vehicles among the Top 10 on its list of Top 100 Municipal Fleets in North America. This is Rochester’s second consecutive year in the top 10 and third year in the top 20.
“Congratulations once again go to Mike Quattrone and his entire team in the Division of Equipment Services for the outstanding and consistent quality of their work,” said Mayor Richards. “The citizens of Rochester can take pride in knowing their tax dollars are being used efficiently and effectively when it comes to maintaining the City’s vehicles.”
Paul Holahan, Commissioner of the City Department of Environmental Services, which includes Division of Equipment Services, said: “The status of our vehicles has a direct impact on a tremendous number of services we deliver, including police patrol, refuse collection, snow removal and street maintenance. With that in mind, it is extremely gratifying to know that the City fleet is in such capable hands.”
Mr. Quattrone credited his employees for the ranking: “This ranking reflects the commitment and dedication of a team of employees who take incredible pride in their work. It is my honor to work with them each day,”
In recognition of its consistent placement on the list, Government Fleet has invited Rochester to host a 100 Best Fleets Seminar on Aug. 2. More than 30 government fleet managers from across the Northeast are expected to attend the seminar to share best practices in fleet management.
The 100 Best Fleets List is based on 12 criteria including accountability; use of technology and information; performance recognition; collaboration; doing it right the first time; and a quick and efficient turnaround. More than 38,000 government fleets are eligible to apply for a spot on the list.
