Madison, Wis. Considers $30 Million Fleet Shop Consolidation

October 27, 2015

The City of Madison, Wis., Fleet Service Division plans to open a $30 million consolidated fleet repair facility to replace three of its aging shops, reports Government Fleet.

The City of Madison purchased 15 acres for the consolidated facility for approximately $2 million two years ago. The consolidated facility would replace the main fleet maintenance garage built in 1954, a fire repair facility, and a radio shop, Bill Vanden Brook, CEM, fleet service superintendent, told Government Fleet. The city would keep two separate, smaller streets division repair shops.

The city fleet consists of about 1,200 units. About 50 employees, including radio personnel, would move into the new facility.
