The City of Pelham in Alabama will now have its fleet vehicles serviced by technicians in Hoover. Hoover has new software that specializes in fleet management and maintenance which could greatly benefit fleet vehicles in the City of Pelham. It took a total of eight months to address any flaws within the contract and finally submit it for approval. Any mechanics that have not been hired during the initial process have been promised that they will be first in line when a position opens up.

Key Takeaways:

  • The city of Hoover, Ala., and the city of Pelham have entered into a five year fleet management agreement that goes into effect in February.
  • In their agreement which was painstaking, the cities worked together for eight months to iron out the fine details.
