Clean Air Leader
The City of Santa Rosa Fleet Management Section is known locally as an industry leader in clean air technology.
The City has received numerous grant awards to fund many of the over one hundred fleet vehicles / equipment that use alternate fuels including electric, hybrid, Compressed Natural Gas, Propane, and ethanol. This number of vehicles and equipment represents approximately 10% of the City's fleet.
In response to a City Council goal to reduce greenhouse gases, Fleet Management adopted an Environmentally Preferable Purchasing policy to eliminate or reduce toxins that create hazards to workers, our community, and the environment. A goal is to create a model that encourages other purchasers in our community to adopt similar goals.
