Minn. City Targets Costs in Utility Fleet Review

March 27, 2017

At a recent meeting, Hibbing City Council (Minn.) and the Public Utilities Commission discussed the results of a study evaluating the city utility, including the way it keeps track of fleet costs, reports the Hibbing Daily Tribune.

One of the study's main recommendations was to improve the way it tracks total cost of ownership (TCO) for vehicles and equipment, noting the utility's difficult-to-read financial records. Currently, the utility manages a fleet of 50 vehicles with an average age of 14 years and 14 pieces of equipment with an average age of 17 years. The study also recommended tablets or laptops for field crew members to give them access to the geographic information system (GIS), work orders, and email.
