Julie Bookheimer, Chief Financial Officer for Chester County, said, “In addition to the ongoing cost savings and benefits resulting from fleet management leasing, the County is benefiting from the current demand for used vehicles. The sale of some of our first-generation leases is allowing the County to recover a great deal of the cost we incurred for the leased vehicle. In one recent instance, the vehicle sale actually resulted in an equity gain.”
The Fleet Management Program allows Chester County’s finance staff to monitor maintenance, fuel usage, and overall vehicle utilization to ensure the best use of each vehicle in the fleet.
The County expects to save an additional $2 million in fleet vehicle costs over the next four years.
