City seeks input from firms for fleet maintenance

By Staff | May 5, 2011

The City of Cape Coral is asking for information and ideas from local companies regarding the provision of light maintenance work for the city’s fleet of 600 cars and trucks.
A “Request for Information” has been posted on the city’s “Bid and Proposals” page on its website, capecoral.net .
“We are reaching out to our local automotive service shops about possibly outsourcing some of the light maintenance services for our City fleet,” said City Manager Gary King in a prepared statement relesed Thursday. “We want to see if there are cost savings or efficiencies that can be provided by the private sector.”
The light maintenance work for the vehicles and small equipment would include preventive maintenance (oil/filter/lube/inspection), engine repairs, collision repair and towing service. The City may consider maintenance services for police vehicles and trucks larger than 1 ton as separate categories.
“We encourage our local auto garages and mechanics to review the ‘RFI’ and submit information,” said King. “If we choose to outsource these services, our preference is to keep the work in the Cape.”
To view the RFI, go to www.capecoral.net and select “Bids and Proposals” from the “Check Status of” navigation. The information must be submitted by May 24.
