Vehicles that are used throughout the City, such as trolleys, police cars, fire trucks, backhoes and trucks, each receive a preventive maintenance check on a regular basis. The preventive maintenance check includes oil and filter changes, lubrication, and any other service required to keep the City's vehicles and equipment in good condition. A washing facility is also available at the Service Center which helps maintain the neat appearance of City vehicles.
Established in 1977, the Service Center is a department that is in constant motion and where personnel are highly skilled individuals whose abilities in the area of mechanics are put to the test on a daily basis. A computerized inventory parts system allows for control and accounting of each part used and results in a cost savings to the City.
