Columbia County's budget was being negatively impacted by an aging fleet. Almost half of the county’s fleet was 10 years or older. The county would only purchase new vehicles when broken-down vehicles were inoperable, creating unpredictable capital expenses.
Columbia County partnered with Enterprise Fleet Management to reducethe average age of the fleet. Enterprise proposed a plan that would allow the county to replace vehicles every five years. In addition, the county would be able to gain over $200,000 in capital from the resale of the existing vehicles,over a five-year span.
