May 26, 2015

The N.C. Public Works Commission, which provides maintenance services to all municipal fleet vehicles in Fayetteville, N.C., has been charging the city up to 44 percent in markup and administrative charges to service the city's vehicles, according to an internal audit.

The audit studied four fiscal years from 2011 to 2014 during which the city averaged $4.9 million for fleet expenditures. The city projects $6.1 million for fleet costs in the 2015 fiscal-year budget.

A spokeswoman for the commission told the media outlet several issues identified in the audit were being addressed in a new fleet maintenance agreement.
