Facilities & Fleet Maintenance

The Facilities and Fleet Maintenance division provides a broad array of services to other City departments. From maintaining over 180 buildings to repairing over 2,500 vehicles, we work hard to ensure that City operations continue without interruption and services can continuously be provided to our community. The division has 130 employees and oversees an operating budget in excess of $30,000,000. 

Our division has made many improvements to improve our resiliency and reduce our energy use. During 2012, we reduced energy consumption in City facilities and achieved a measured cost avoidance totaling $1,668,016. We re-lamped 7,200 streetlights from conventional lighting to LED, reducing energy consumption by 60% per light fixture.

Our headquarters is located at: Municipal Service Center, 1059 Lafayette Drive, El Paso, Texas.

Our Mission

Maintain all City buildings in order to provide for a proper, comfortable, safe, and clean environment; not only for our employees, but also for the general public who visit our facilities.

Provide fuel, repair parts, and offer maintenance support for the approximately 2485 vehicles in the City as well as all customer departments, and administer the City's motor pool program.
