Livingston Township Announces Inter-local Agreement on Fleet Maintenance

In a continuous effort to streamline services and reduce costs, the Township of Livingston and the Livingston Board of Education have entered into an inter-local agreement for fleet maintenance. Starting on April 1, 2012, the Township’s Department of Public Works (DPW) will provide repair services for the Board of Education’s own fleet of 18 buses, 11 vans, and 18 maintenance vehicles. Under the agreement, the Board of Education will reimburse the Township for the cost of parts and supplies, and will pay the ongoing hourly rate for Township staff to provide preventative maintenance and repairs as needed.

“The Livingston Public Schools’ fleet is critical to the operation of the school district and our vehicles have historically been well maintained,” said Brad Draeger, Superintendent of Schools.  The District does not have a covered garage.  “Our mechanic has had to make repairs during inclement weather and there have been several occasions that we have had to have our vehicles repaired by a third party because of the types of repairs needed at an increased cost to the District,” Draeger continued.  Timing for this agreement could not have been better.  The District’s part-time mechanic will be retiring at the end of June. 

“The mutual goal for the Township and the Board of Education is to maximize shared services for cost savings for Livingston residents,” reported Michele E. Meade, Township Manager.   “This agreement will help offset the Township’s fixed costs and will maximize use of the existing resources of the Township’s fleet maintenance operation at the same time saving money for the Board of Education.”

A Royal Pain

I like to think I was invited, but according to the Royal Guards and the Thames Valley Police I was not.  But more about that later.

You see, not too long ago I received an evite addressed to me from H&M@royalwedbot.co.uk.  Curiously, it was in my spam folder with a warning message. For an evite it was pretty ...
